Hollywood’s most famous residents get hand-pampered until their skin shines, a trick to looking good they may have picked up the local Vineland Car Wash. Here, technicians use soap and elbow grease to scrub signs of wear from vehicle exteriors, following up with a coat of wax that keeps the cars looking like new. A typical scrub down ends with the hanging of an air freshener from the rearview mirror, a parting gift akin to a breath mint after a dinner of soap.
For more than 35 years, the experts at International Auto Radio have been souping up and stylizing cars with top of the line electronics and security enhancements. Technicians collaborate with customers to create customized sound systems for boats, video entertainment for an RV, or a car navigation system that drives you straight to the nearest donuts. The techs can also transform trunk space into wall-to-wall speaker systems, install fuchsia under-lighting for a Spyder motorcycle, or plug in high-resolution digital screens in the backseat of sedans. To amp up security, staffers can also install systems from ScyTek Electronics that beam signals directly to a driver’s smartphone.
Automatic car washes may be quick and convenient, but there’s something to be said about hand washing a car. The time and care it takes to physically wipe away dirt, scrape grime from the tires, and wax-on, wax-off until Mr. Miyagi’s reflection appears in the finish proves a level of dedication to the vehicle—dedication upheld by Classic Hand Car Wash. The spot's diligent technicians honor rides with meticulous hand washes, waxes, and Armor All tire treatments. Once the exterior shines, they sweep through the interior with vacuums, dusters, and odor-killing air fresheners.
The staff at HWB Car Wash believes in taking care of the environment as well as it takes care of cars. Every vehicle that comes through HWB finds itself lavished with biodegradable cleaning solutions, recycled water, and gentle Lammscloth, an alternative to cloth and nylon bristles that doesn't corrupt the painted finish or overexcite the hood ornament and cause an embarrassing scene. All week long, the eco-friendly and polar-bear-friendly waxes, polishes, and dressings transform dirty cars into sparkling vehicles, and detailing attendants brush and buff away stubborn rust, stains, and blemishes with an armory of shampoos and solutions. While vehicles revel in the attention, motorists can peruse the gift shop's collection of greeting cards for an appropriate way to apologize to the GPS navigator for responding to its suggestions by rebelliously reciting Frost's "The Road Not Taken."
Lucky Auto Detailing proves its commitment to earth-friendly practices by cleaning carriages with only biodegradable solutions, microfiber towels, and liquid wax. Each wash is waterless, a habit which conserves up to 30 gallons of water per car, or the exact amount needed to save a tree that’s dehydrated from crying. The center collects its services in five treatment packages, which range from a six-step regular wash to a full detail complete with doorjamb cleaning and a conditioning of vinyl or leather seats. And Lucky Auto Detailing doesn’t just cleanse cars, but protects them as well; the center’s sealant service prevents color from fading with a two-step process that shields paint with a copolymer concoction capable of projecting a "wet" finish for up to one year.
Each member of the team refreshes automobiles inside and out, whether by steady hand or thorough machine. Cars can also enjoy hand wax alongside thorough interior or exterior detail packages. While cars are getting pampered, customers can wait in a comfortable room that features padded chairs and photographs of historic tic-tac-toe matches.
