    First post on Meguiar's site. Clean, wash, and detail my own cars even at 70 years of age. Have a few interesting rides. My daily driver is a 2010 Jaguar XKR. I've owned it for ten years, has 199,000 miles on it, pulleyed and tuned to about 600hp, and is the best automobile I have ever owned in 55 years of driving. Quick, gorgeous, comfortable, so reliable, and most importantly, still a joy to drive everyday even at nearly 200,000 miles. My Sunday canyon carver/show car is my 1972 De Tomaso Pantera, fully restored and modified to make it more powerful and more reliable. I've owned it for over 25 years. Finally, I've got a 1968 Pontiac GTO that has recently undergone restoration but still needs suspension work to make it more enjoyable to drive. But between the Jag and the Pantera, I don't have much more time to drive it anyway. Have a couple more project cars. I have a 1978 Datsun 280Z owned since new that will undergo restoration sometime in the near future, and a 1958 Corvette undergoing a restomod conversion for my son. Came to this website to get more comfortable with using a polisher and learning about correct pad and product applications.

      Welcome to Meguiar's Online! 600 horse daily is not a bad way to go at all! If you have not seen this article, it would be a great starting reference for info on using a Dual Action:

        Welcome TBerg.

        That is a nice stable of cars.
        Good to hear you like your recent Jaguar.
        Not much outdrives a Pantera with a mid engine Ford.

        So you have a Goat and two big cats. Can I be very envious.

        Yes, they all three looks clean and shiny. Good job.
