Car Culture: What Is An Orphaned Car?

Car shows can cater to all types and genre of vehicles. On-road or off road, American muscle or tuners, even Fords or Chevys. But what is a car show for discontinued and orphaned cars?

These are the forgotten cars of yesteryear… rides that the aftermarket bypassed in a big way, leaving them with no go-fast parts… and in dire circumstances limited replacement parts.

Video: Spray-And-Wipe Detailer Comparison

Speed Shine is a long-time customer favorite while Best of Show Detailer is relatively new to the game. Both these products excel at quick clean ups, dusting, and general paint maintenance between full-service washes but they each have their own personalities.
