Default Pollen be darned. Today is El Camino day!

Tired of keepin my el camino under wraps with the car cover. Pollen be ****ed. I pulled off the cover and washed and waxed my elkie. Pulled out the bed mat and cleaned the bed and the mat. Treated the mat with rubber treatment and put it back in. I will not be dictated to by pollen and tree trash.

I don't have much of a problem with pollen, yet. However the neighbors lawn mowers throw grass clippings and blow dust 25 feet. Its a big John Deer, ZTR and she mows in passing gear.

I never experienced pollen before and it has been a nightmare here. My car covered with it like snow, I left one window halfway down for the day and the interior was covered.

I love it when I see a convertible with the top down and the pollen raining.
What are they thinking?

I'm glad you got your car cleaned bob, now all you have to do is get some decent looking rims on it. Before anyone gets angry, it's a chat room joke between me and bob...........

Heh Ted,
Time to get out the tire gauge, let about half the air out of the Big John Deere (discretely of course). Doesn't permanently damange anything, and if she is a clueless as it sounds, she will use it for about 2 months before she figures out there is something wrong.
Well, maybe not...
