    After 20 plus years my Little Playmate finally bit the dust. Thankfully I have a gently used one from a safe driving award a few years later. Should take me to the end.

    Did you consume food from that thing? Clorox is your friend.

    I have one of those and it looks almost as bad. Package cars are not exactly a sterile environment.
  5. Apparently you've never been on road everything gets dirty like that and it doesn't always clean off at all

    23 years worth on the road. That's why I know Clorox can be your friend. Makes many things whiter. Obviously, you can't wait ten years between washings, or it will never get clean.

    I thought this was a pic from "Punching the Bowl" thread.
  9. I stand corrected then, maybe you've just had the cleanest packages and trucks ever or you're OCD, you'd cringe if you saw my water jug, mouth piece is clean anything white is now grey black and I do wash it, and it's only 3 weeks old since my last one took a sail out the jumper door when the handle popped off and it slip out into traffic

    I have a cooler like that. My brother refuses to drink a beer out of it. Thats OK---he mooches too much of my beer anyway.

    I should add that over my lifetime I have worn out my share of coolers.

    That's what I was thinking exactly. I can see Brownmonster pulling over, picking up a roadside beater and leaving the blue wonder in it's place.

    I couldn't even count how many of those I went through in my time at Parcel. Kinda like Timex, take a beating and keep on ticking.
