Owned and operated by a detail-oriented veteran of the US military, A Guy and a Girl Auto Detailing cleanses cars in New Orleans, Metairie, West Bank, and Northshore with their mobile detailing services. In their most meticulous service—known as the Big Easy Booster detail – the team restores luster to exterior sheet metal with a spotless hand wash, buffing, and wax. Interiors are lavished with similar attention—car owners can expect thoroughly shampooed upholstery, a dustless dashboard, and an air freshener installed upon entering their freshly detailed vehicle.
In 1968, whitewall tires were more popular. Grills were wider, gleaming grins on the front of powerful autos. Though cars have changed significantly, Halima Car Wash has stayed in the same place for four decades. Today, the staff there says they’ve cleaned more than one million vehicles. Cars return to a near-factory-issue gleam at the hands of the technicians, who are equipped with clear-coat conditioner, paint protectant, and tire shine.
The experienced drivers of Big Easy Limos chauffeur guests through New Orleans in style inside a fleet of luxury vehicles. Up to four commuters can swiftly move from A to B in a black Lincoln Town Car, and as many as 28 can pile into a spacious limo bus on outings such as bachelor parties, proms, or chain-gang reunions. Big Easy Limos also supplies vehicles ranging from a 16-passenger Hummer H2 limo equipped with three flat-screen televisions to a vintage 1957 Rolls Royce still covered in “I Like Ike” bumper stickers. The company can also transport up to 24 travelers at a time to and from airports.

The mobile staff at #1 Xclusive Auto Detailing arrives at homes and offices carting all of the supplies, water, and electricity needed to turn a dusty ride into a shiny blur of piston-powered poetry.
