so this is my gf's and my car sitting next to each other after having a tough couple days because of irene. the one thing you cant see is that our cars got caked with salt water blown from the ocean which is about .5 of a mile away. the paint felt like sand paper from all the salt that was on it. her car is an 09 that just hit 40k on the clock. she just purchased in june and loves the car.
