The hard-working car washers at SI Auto Bath restore glowing complexions to autos while protecting tires and paint from damage. Using high-pressure machines, they evict grime from jalopies and add protective coats of wax, tire-shielding treatments, and a thick pair of long underwear to restore showroom shines. Air compressors dry all visiting vehicles, which roll in and out from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. seven days a week.

This dichotomy seems to reflect the philosophy of Salit Auto Repair’s team of technicians, who turn their expertise toward vehicles from sporty to practical. Nestled inside the barn-style office, the garage rattles with the sounds of pneumatic car lifts, smooth-running engines, and the squeak of owners practicing their Dukes of Hazzard hood slide.
