I took this picture of my mom's Vibe a couple weeks ago in front of Altgeld Hall at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. This particular building has gargoyles on it and looks like a castle. To make it even cooler looking, there are Christmas lights, a wreath and orange lights shining on the building (because the Huskies are in the Orange Bowl this year!).

Immaculate Vibe!! It's shocking that you can take such a close-up of the engine and not even see a spec of dust. Do the same with my engine and your camera will be covered in dirt LOL.

Thanks for the kind words :D! All I do is wipe the engine bay down with a damp towel after every wash.

Last Saturday I spent the entire day detailing the exterior of my mom's Vibe in preparation for winter. I figured I'd get some pictures of it while it was all nice and clean. As you can see, I also switched to the winter wheels and tires.
