I saw that too.
I was surprise not to see Zaino, but I don't think you can get Zaino in a store, can you? Maybe that's why.

I went looking for Black Magic at AutoZone last night and did not see it. I picked up the Turtle Wax Platinum, thinking it was the top rated. When I checked the magazine again this morning, I realized I meant to get T-9 instead. I'm going to return the Platinum and get the T-9 if they have it.

Wally Word has the Black Magic, but I'm sticking with Rejex. |thumb|

In my one to one comparison of Rejex to Meguiar's I did not notice any dirt pickup differences (rear of 3 cars). I have gone to the hood/front on my wife's Impala now and one side is Rejex versus "The Gold Class-(Paste wax)" on the other side. So far bug removal is the same. After the first wash I put a second coat of Rejex on it's side and the water beading was much improved. I have now put a second coat of the Meguiar's on its side. I have never done this two coat thing before.

Surprisingly the Meguiars paste wax, "The Gold Class", says long lasting polymer protection. Note also that Rejex says 4 months.

I bought some stuff from Adams and so far am very impressed. The detailing spray does windows and Chrome, It it also great to use if your car gets a little dusty. It is amazing that you get spray it and wipe it off leaving so swirls marks and leaves a high gloss shine. NO I Don't work for them or get kick backs. |laugh| I am just sharing what I believe are some great products. http://www.adamspolishes.com/

I have been VERY pleased with Glare Auto Polish. I have tried Adams, Zaino, and all the rest but Glare works best and has a fantastic shine. If you have not tried it I urge you to do so.

Adam you are correct Zaino Bros products are not sold in stores. I have been in search of the perfect wax for years and have tried many including Zaino wich I use on may Stingray. I have tried  Adams Polishes and like them as well.
 
My pop would be proud to see that Turtle Wax is in the top running in that recent survey. He is a long time user and that will make for a good birthday gift from me to him.
 
I too have wondered about Liquid Glass and will take a look at the Glare line of products......  (add another wax to the cabinet)!

For years I have used all kinds of waxes and have paid big dollars for some.  When I got my new 07 Blk/Blk conv I read nearly every frum on the web, but read onefrom a Marine in Arizona that showed a picture of his blk Corvette , and you could see the color of the sky,and the color of his eyesin the reflection on the hood.  I tried it, knowing that a fellow Marine would know about "Shine".  It proved to be the absolute best for application and durability.  It was REJEX. 2 years later and applied to 4 vehicles - all I use.
