The car is an MG-F and I believe it's in Switzerland. At one time I saw a bunch of pictures of this ice storm. Very dramatic.

You can download a Power Point Presentation of all the pictures here:

Just out of curiosity, why would you have your car detailed in february, when you live in NJ?

Wonko,
I wanted to get the products on the car priority one. For Xmass, I received a nice batch of Finish Kare items. I realized the "detailed" effect would wear off quickly. I usually clean my car about 3 times a month anyway. I figured that with the old stuff stripped off , I could have the finish cleaned and the paint sealed. The wax and 425 would protect against the elements. It just so happens that I was driving it on a day that it should have stayed in the garage and she was iced in.

I carfully dethawed today and drove here home.
