    I didn't go to hell with the joke with the Armor-all, I just wiped it down. I don't like making everything slick and greasy either.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Many cleaners have harsh chemicals that break down the plastics and leathers of a car's interior. I use Griot's Garage interior cleaner. But I only use that on stains and high wear areas. Most of the time, I use an interior duster. Like the exterior California Car Duster, the interior duster attracts dust and light dirt marks on seats. Keeps the interior spotless.

    And the Griot's cleaner has no sheen. So my cars just look clean, not slathered in shmoo...

    I have no idea how well alcantara holds up. I can tell you real leather does not hold up for 100k miles.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    my leather seats are starting to fall apart after 25 years and 66k. If I don't keep them constantly moisturized, they crack when I sit on them- thats what 25 years of heavy smoking and not cleaning/ moisturizing them will do. At least the back seat is mint.

    What did I do? Packed it, lightly, and washed it. Heading to Daytona in an hour and a half to make it down for the big spring show and swap meet with a bunch of other wagon kooks.

    WE, WE SO EXCITED (For you, Jesda. lol)

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I just use a damp microfiber towel to wipe everything off. If there is a stubborn stain on a plastic part, I'll soak another rag in dish detergent, scrub, then wipe down with the clean damp towel. For the leather I use lexol.

    As for leather holding up, a lot of it has to do with proper care and what type of leather the manufacturer chose. I'm convinced a lot of car makers use cheap ass leather so your seats look worn out after 5-6 years and 100k miles, so you'll buy a new car.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    If you drive your car everyday, leather seats (on any car I have owned) start creasing after 6 months. And I used leather conditioner. Part of the reason I prefer cloth seats. My V was almost 5 years old when I sold it, and not a crease. But it was not driven often. And leather steering wheels are the worst, at least for me. Maybe my hands are more oily than most, but they always start scaling after a couple years. And they get really sticky when it's humid.

    I was just up there yesterday! Got fried crispy. There were several wagons including the teal and white one with the 57 Chevy fins. On the back row is a BADASS big block chevy powered '75 Bricklin. Probably the most memorable car I saw there. And its orange!

    Had an AMAZING time at the show.

    We had a total of 18 wagons show up from our clique. It was EPIC. Here are the photos (I made the album public, you shouldn't need FB to view).

    The Hurst/Olds Vista Cruiser was freaking BAD TO THE BONE!!!!! Same thing with that grey wagon with the red pinstripe and red stripe on the wheels, that was one CLEAN machine right there.
