Electric kool aid car wash

Filed under: Places to visit — Tags: — washaw @ 6:00 am

My car loves this place!  The colors are combinations of soap and waxing solutions applied automatically as the car passed through the brushes and flaps.  The pool of colors on the floor appears to be several small leaks that have combined into a pastel swirl.   Personnel at either end of the operation help with the final touches.  The whole process takes about 10 minutes. 




  1. Very arty!

  3. I did that the other day, but I was in the car!
    I don’t know why my Deezer is multi-tasking, sometimes it just goes nuts. I removed the embedded music in the post, I guess I’m just not going to be able to do that unless I get rid of the sidebar, which I don’t want to do. Oh well, you can’t have everything.
