Drying your car a different way :-) Anyone else try this?

ok guys laugh all you want, but I use a Black & Decker leaf blower for drying my car, yes it works great nothing beats 200 mph air and it's safe as long as you don't touch the car with the tip and scratch your paint.

Try it, you will love it, no spots, not a single one, just be careful and make sure all the dirt on the ground is clean first, or the dirt and stones may blow back onto your car. Works best in a cleaned paved driveway.

NOTE !!! MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS SUPER CLEAN AND NO DIRT IS IN THE UNIT OR ON THE CAR, WHEELS OR ANYTHING AROUND. IF THE UNIT IS NOT CLEAN AND YOU USED IT TO SUCK UP LEAFS IN REVERSE, THE UNIT COULD BLOW OUT ROCKS AND DIRT AND TEAR THE HELL OUT OF YOUR CAR'S BODY & PAINT JOB, WINDOWS OR ANYTHING ON IT @ 200 MPH. I"M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE

PLEASE USE COMMONSENSE. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW: You can use the leaf blower for fun too, when your outside and your girl bends over, hehehehe But only from a distance or you could blow her over. Note works best with free flowing dresses.

I'll have to weigh the positive against the negative here:

Positive: Dry the car quickly, and in all the quirky places.

Negative: Neighbours will think I'm a dumb ass.

Could have fooled me. ohboy rolleyes

I'm going to stick with hand drying. Kristen that leather cloth you were talking about...its called a chamois. wave
I hear its not that good for your car, but I don't have stratches, so I keep using it.
