Oh sure, you could come back here week after week to look for a list of car stuff to do, but why bother? 

The advantage of our emails when compared to anyone else's email program is that we can do radius mapping.  If you tell us the zip code for where you live (or work) and how far you'd travel to attend an event, we'll send you a list of events in your desired travel area. 

That should leave you plenty of time to polish the car.
