Ok, so here's what you do.
You start out by trapping the meanest stray cat you can find. Keep it in a box right next to the washing machine. I mean, like up against it, or even better yet, on top of it. Load the washer with the heaviest blanket you can find and a brick. If you don't have a brick, a large rock will do. Start the washer. Keep it going to get that stray cat as agitated as possible. Feed the cat, though. And give it water. There's no sense in being mean to it.
In the mean time, pick up your X from the dealership and take a big, long sniff. Did they get the stench out? yep? Good! Nope? Even better! If not, take your truck to your guy and have him de-stinkify that thing.
Now, don't forget you have a very mean, very agitated (but not hungry) stray cat to contend with. Put that box in your truck, preferably right next to a speaker, and drive to the dealership... wearing a clown costume. Ask to see the salesman that told you they don't detail their vehicles. When he approaches, start shaking the box. Not too hard though, there is a living being inside. This part is really important, so read carefully... Position the box so that the flap is facing you. When you open that sucker, you want the cats only avenue of escape to be right into the salesman, not your face.
Tell the salesman you have a surprise for him, and have him lean in real close as you shake that box one last time. When he gets within range, quickly release the flap and let that little ball of raging anger loose. In one swift movement, drop the box and make for the quickest exit ever performed by a human.
This plan solves two problems.
1: Your X gets clean.
2: You get back at the stealership for taking your time with you beloved new vehicle.
3: You get a good laugh out of it.
4: The stray cat finds a new best friend and probably a home (with the salesman).
5: It shows that I am not only the worst at giving advice, but also bad at math.
Hope this helps...
P.S. Don't do this. It is probably the single worst idea you have ever read. If you got this far into this comment, Kudos to you.
