    No joke. I work at a honda dealership in cols. ohio and our new management decided that as a promotion they would have "test drive a car, get a pumpkin."

    These brainiacs decided that pumpkins were just too darn dirty to give to customers so they enlisted myself and a few fellow employers to detail some 300 or so pumpkins.



    Hows that for a rip roaring gooooooood time.

    So where's the pics?

    Gary Kouba (turbomangt) on Autopia detailed the G6's for the oprah show but I guess pumpkin detailing is pretty cool too.

    it actually kind of totally sucked.

    It wasnt actual detailing so much as it was taking them out of a dusty crate washing them with water and then scrubbing with a mat brush and then rinsing and drying.

    I've heard that NuFinish is great on Pumpkins, I think you should try that next time. ;)

    try a little #16. It'll give your pumpkin that extra pop.

    They should be able to order it for you. Lots of places have it online or you can go to the source, www.meguiars.com

    11 oz for about $13 retail. Enough to do at least 50 cars.

    A coat of wax may make them look really good. Apples are waxed before they are sent to the stores why not pumpkins.
