In- stead of washing your car with soap and water, try washing it with a bucket of water and one cup kerosene, fol- lowed by a good wiping with soft cloths.

It helps prevent rust. Use no wax with this method. In the thank you note I had put in the paper, it was not Bernon Kerns; it was Vernon Kerns.
