    I know this is an odd request - maybe it should go to off topic, but it's unlikely anyone would see it there.
    For a practical joke I need a picture of a really dirty Model S. Muddy, off-road, really dirty. Preferably a white car, but I'll take any color :)
    Pro tip: do NOT search the internet for pictures of "dirty model s" - just trust me on that one.

    Here you go. I still can't believe I did this -- I was in @Vger's neck of the woods about 2 months after getting my S, February of 2013 I think, and I drove it to the top of Mount Maxwell. I thought it was going to be a "real road" up there but alas it was quite a bushwack. I've never done anything like that since.

    I have a friend with a white Model S who is obsessed about washing / cleaning it and keeping it absolutely pristine.
    So I send emails saying "oh, a friend saw your car" and attach a picture of a really dirty white Model S. :-D
    (yes, I am a very simple person - and I have been called MEAN for doing this... so sue me)
    Thanks for all the help. Please keep them coming!

    Good for you. I am equally as obsessed as your friend. I get cranky when she gets dusty! Might be time to check me in to the nut house.

    Did you see the photo on one of the threads with something like a foot of snow packed on the rear end? I don't think it's what you are looking for. But it was a great pic.

    Nut house seems excessive. There are self help groups and 12 step programs, I hear :-D
    I think I'm closer to the other end of the spectrum. After five weeks of ownership I washed mine for the first time last weekend.
    And over night a bird pooped on it. Not once or twice. SIX times. And I'm not parked under a tree or anything. Clear skies above the car. So the bird basically had to be flying in circles above the car to do that. Teaches me not to wash it, I guess...
    Yes, I saw that. That was a really cool picture. But the ones here were more along the lines of what I'm looking for. I was just hoping for more :)

    Since I got the car in march, I only washed it once.. and it was after that 250mile+ trip in icing + muddy condition (pic above). I know it's a really nice car but it's my commuter car. It will get stone chips, scratches, etc. As long as I can't see any of it from the driving seat, I'm actually OK with it!
