Having been bombarded with waxed-and-buffed Concours galleries for a week it's time to break free from proper cars to enjoy cars used properly. What vehicle looks great dirty?
A Jeep without mud is like an ice cream sundae without the hot chocolate or Don Draper without a drink in his hand. All are incomplete. The design of the vehicle is actually inspired by mud itself, with the front fenders meant to imitate the pieces of metal smashed into the original Jeeps to prevent generals from getting covered in liquid dirt. The hours you spend washing it off and out of every crevice is just part of the fun.
We don't say this often enough: share your dirty thoughts and dirty (vehicular) photos.
