You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Disco Centre is well worth a visit. Has many displays & cars to peek at. Don't forget the jelly wrestling pit either.

Here's a link to peek at.. http://www.trueblueford.com/Discovery_Main.htm
