Kuwait: $10,000 Car Treat!

Would you spend $10,000 getting your car waxed? I know I wouldn't – but Lebanese blogger Mark, who lives in Kuwait, draws our attention to someone who did just that.

Mark writes:

Back in December I posted about a user on YouTube called paradise1man who had just received his Bugatti Veyron and shot a video of it and uploaded it online. Well I just checked his account now and he has a ton of more videos the latest is of Paul Dalton, “The worlds best car cleaner” who came in all the way from the UK to clean his car.

The video above is of Paul Dalton waxing the car which alone costs $10,000. If it was me I would have probably gotten bored of the car a month later and just started taking it to the Bayan (local) car wash…

Paradiseman responds to the post saying:

just want to tell you some thing,you did not know how much he cost me if it was $10000 or $1?and you don’t know if he was my friend or not,maybe he is making it for free you never know,i think i will keep you all guessing,sorry if i said anything hurt your feelings,but i love you all and god bless you,good luck and have a nice day.

Paradise1man has a collection of videos on YouTube featuring his precious collection of cars and the world class treatment they get. Here's the video of the alleged $10,000 car wax:

    HALA SHAM3AT LI KUWAIT,

    ana b5air el7emdellah,enty shlonech o sha5barech,about our streets you are right can’t be sure what’s going to happen when you drive on them,but hey:) what can i do,if i don’t just go out driving it then it will be sitting in the garage for nothing,that’s why i always go out with it in late night so there will be no more jawal taxi on my way:).o allah yesalmech min kel shar mashkoora,good luck.

    DEAR AMIRA,

    it’s a word of truth,so you are most welcome,when are you going back and how long you have bin there?allah ma3ach,have a nice day.

  • Hi Folks,

    Veyron is ok but by far not enough. What one needs are a thousand or more of small cars of 1.600 EUR each the kinda you see hereon a vid from Germany: http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=TIT-hN0w7Mk

    They should be spread from the groundfloor to the attic in the house in order to never have to miss the view on a matchless car. That’s the attitude of sb being a true car freak. Karl
