I only wash mine regular in the winter to get the copious amounts of salt off that they like to pour on the roads here. Your assistant would be welcome to wash it everyday.

First wash in months...
I like to keep a solid layer of mud on it, cause I hate the color
(After-market paint job; you can't tell from the crappy cell-phone pic, but there's an obnoxious amount of blue flakes in the paint - to the point that it looks glittery ... oh, it also has black ghost flames on the hood and fenders)

My truck is gold and it matches the color of the dirt around here. I've had it for 8 months and I've washed it probably 4 times...so every two months or so.

My honda civic gets washed every 3 years. So every 2 months is pretty good.

And see that's what I love about a truck, you don't feel so pressured to have to wash it because its a truck. I used to have a 2005 WRX STi, and I used to wash that thing sometimes twice a week well because it was an STi. Now that I have a truck, and an older one at that (2003), I wash it about once a month.

Maybe once a month or so, for most of the year. During utah winters I do a drive through wash to get the salt off at least twice a week.

...Never ever freaking fails
Doesn't matter how long of a dry-spell we've had (at least a month, this time around)...
if I spend a little bit more than I should have at the car-wash, within 24 hours it POURS rain

Too much in the summer, she gets spoiled. About 1-2x a month in the summer and once every other or every 3 months in the winter.

I manage a large full service car wash, but I live next door to it so my truck doesn't get too dirty. So probably twice a month. My Stang gets it every week.

^I used to wash the Evo every week like you. Now it only seems to get washed 3 or 4 times a year. But then I only put about 2000 miles on it a year.

My truck gets washed about half that these days. Yesterday was one of those days though!

The boobs brought me here too. Maybe like once a month or month and a half. Before the tacoma I had a dark grey civic, similar to mgm, and man that color hid the dirt so well I almost never washed it and it looked fine. Now my truck is black, so even right after I wash it it looks all spotty. It's really hard to keep the black looking clean.

When it rains. It's going to body shop next week for a cab and bed swap. All new paint so it will be washed quite often
