Carwood offers hand car washes and custom detailing services that treat roadsters to a customized experience. Eschew bronze and silver runners up with the Gold Finish service, which polishes pavement ponies with a full-service wash of every surface, including a sudsy tickle of the undercarriage and an Armor All tire and exterior dressing. A clear-coat protectant, Blue Coral triple-coat treatment, and sealer wax lock in each vehicle’s new clean. Both washing services end with an air freshener to improve the olfactory aesthetics of car interiors.

The newly remodeled Lakewood Car Wash & Detail Center slays built-up vehicular filth with protective Simoniz products. During each drive-thru express exterior wash, fiberglass surfaces are bathed with a soft cloth before suds are rinsed away with a spot-free formula and contour drying to thoroughly eliminate water spots and pruned tires. A healthy serving of Wheel Brite, Simoniz Wheel Bling, and Simoniz triple-foam polish imbues exteriors with a long-lasting luster. The procedure also includes a rust inhibitor and clear-coat protectant to keep autos guarded from steel decay and barnacles. Each five-minute wash comes with unlimited use of vacuums and a $3 mail-in rebate for Simoniz Double Bond Teflon car-care protection.

The lobby at Ray-A-Motive inspires nostalgia from the moment clients walk in. Above checkerboard tile, a display case towers in the style of a classic Shell gas pump. Despite the retrospective atmosphere, the Automotive Service Excellence–certified, circa-1986 garage traffics in the most modern of automotive care. Oil changes, emissions tests, and repair services keep rides in working order. The team also is experienced in working with RVs, effortlessly fixing malfunctioning powertrains, and figuring out why honking the horn turns on the microwave.
