BABYS FIRST WASH

A proud Moment in Life.......We used to live one block from this car wash, and as a child I would spend hours at this car wash car watching, thinking one day one Im going to take my car and let them shine it up.

Back then it was a automatic wash, they have since upgraded yet everyone in the neighborhood new to come pick me up if they were going threw the car wash

Across the Street Neighbor Rev Fowler (RIP), 1981 Caddilac Fleetwood D'elegance
Mrs Tricia My Neighbor Ford Mavric (Not sure what year)
My Mom 1984 Buick Regal
My Aunt 1985 Buick Somerset
Uncle Charlie 1985 Buick Skyhawk
Ms. Shirly 1984 Riveria

Yeah Buicks run deep.... many in the family worked at Lockheed Electronics and at the time early 80s there Credit Union had a deal with RT22 Buick

Sorry there's no way I would let those guy wash my car with those mits that get used on every bodies car. Especially a dark colored car... Just asking for swirls, that's my opinion.

Ouch. Find a hand car wash somewhere. Running it through a machine isn't doing your car any favors.

I have ran my cars through those car wash places before and twice they scratched my paint and one time they dented the roof of my 240SX. No bueno!

He means a DIY. If you're careful (AND DON'T USE THE MOP THING) they are OK places to wash your car. It wont get your car as clean as it could be but it wont scratch. I'd stand as far back as possible though, with the nozzle. (EDIT: for the reason that zfuzz says in the next post haha)

Self serve with your mitts and bucket and such. Pi$$ on everyone waiting behind you. Same goes for hot high school cheerleaders having a car wash. Just say no!
