    Your kidding right?
    Wax the beast, hell Iím lucky if I wash it twice a year.
    I canít imagine trying to wax it with anything other than a spray on.

    Yeah. I guess I'm a sucker for the marketing, but I mostly use the turtle wax.

    Haven't waxed the Suburban yet; I'm afraid it will peel the previous owner's paint job off and the truck will be orange again.

    For my cars, though: I used to use Turtle Wax, primarily because that's what my Dad always used and that was what was in the garage. However, as I started getting into car shows and cruise nights, I started using the Meguiar's Liquid Gold Class wax. Works better than anything else I have ever used. Now my Dad has switched and he uses it too for his cars.

    You can get it at just about any auto parts store. I bought mine at Advance Auto Parts, just because that's the only one we have in my town. As for price, it's more expensive than Turtle Wax but it's still only $8-9 for a bottle, and that'll last you for a while.

    Being as busy as I am, I've actually been going through car washes about 4 times per year and getting whatever wax they have. Once my arm heals up a good waxing by hand would be good for all my vehicles.

    A friend of mine had an '00 Trans Am that he used Zaino exclusively on. It always looked great.

    if you guys have not seen www.griots.com yet, you should take a look they have some GREAT shop stuff on that site. Some of it is a little spendy but there are a lot of awesome additions to your shop and the products (from my experience so far are top notch). They have the whole detailing gamut, waxes, cleaners .... etc. its all there.
