That sucks, I have that same problem. My car is white but in spring it turns YELLOW.

All you can do is spray it down.

Gah! I know that picture well... I made a thread about it too, but no picture of my car. Three days in a row my car went from spotlessly clean to covered in yellow crap, the third time it literally happened while I watched. I have my car in a garage, which helps a lot, but it still gets pollen on it each time someone opens the garage door.

Lol! At least you don't have the white stuff to worry about!

I'd do anything to be able to wash AND wax my car!

OH YEA!!

Well every YEAR giant swarms of robins migrate to where I live, and I have not 1 but 2 giant holly trees FULL of nice ripe berrys. NOTHING IS SAFE my dog even has bird crap on her. Oh and thats not the worst of it the realy bad part is when they are in mating season they see their reflection in the car mirrors and fight themselves. Therefore scratching my mirrors, and I also have mirror window tint so I have bags tied over my mirrors and blankets over my windows plus the pollen season and in the summer the average is about 92*. And I have no garage.

Ha beat that...........

Hey deftones, what area of Houston are you in? I'm also in Houston, and yes this Pollen SUCKS! Hopefully it won't last long. I always see a black SVT focus in my area but have never spoken to the guy. It looks kinda like urs.
