Detailed the household rivals

So on Friday morning after work I decided to do a quick detailing on both of our vehicles. I did MelloYelloTi first as my wife had to leave for work and it was cleaner/quicker to do. Second up was my wife's Chevy Cruze.

After doing her car, I brought it up to her work & did some photos. Enjoy

OMG! I have a Focus and my wife has a Cruze too! What is it about the Cruze that women like?

They like Hebby Chebbys?

Good job on the detailing!

I'm going to detail her car first, but the car crusher at the local dump was on the fritz, so have to wait 'til next week to make it a truly "compact" car...

...mean time, will just dream about making it the size of a VW Beetle.

Do you always drive your Focus with no tags?

What I've learned from these photos, Chevy drivers can't park to save their lives. LOL

Is it me or do the mirrors stick out way too far on the Cruze (bottom pic really shows this)?

The Focus looks like a car that was meant to be. The Cruze, on the other hand, always looked like a larger car -Malibu for example- that had it's growth stunted.

+1. Although not too crazy about the color of the Cruze. Love the 18s on them though.
