Yellow and blue signage near the parking lots of shopping malls, offices, and entertainment centers indicates the presence of ProntoWash Eco AutoSpa, a car wash and detailing powerhouse that boasts more than 350 operations worldwide. Its business model revolves around accessibility—ProntoWash sets up shop where cars already are, saving drivers time and preserving all the gas and corn dogs that engines would have otherwise consumed during a trip to a traditional car wash. Helming special yellow Washing Karts, the company's technicians use biodegradable detergent and about a pint of low-pressure water to render each car clean. They also care for cars by vacuuming carpets, restoring headlights, stuffing multivitamins inside ailing glove compartments, and making arrangements to hit the road with their mobile car-wash service.
The award-winning acting coach and filmmaker Ralph Kinnard still offers classes for beginners and professionals at Miami Acting Studio. His acting workshops are based on the techniques of Lee Strassberg (he of Actor’s Studio fame), the father of modern acting. Each once-a-week session works to teach actors the basics and beyond, by building on their natural instincts, emotions and abilities, before taking risks on stage. The class work includes improvisation and scene development to help actors build their craft, and many of the Studio’s graduates find work have had success in television and movies. Best of all: the first class is always free.
At Just Right Car Wash, a team of fiberglass-friendly technicians reveals like-new rides after thorough 30- to 90-minute washing services. The fully equipped facility handles cars, SUVs, and well-disguised elephants with car-safe products and equipment. Regular washes chip away built-up grit and grime with an outside washing, interior vacuuming, and liquid-wax finish, and super washes include an interior shampoo or exterior wax. Ultimate washes leave surfaces shining as brilliantly as Rudolph's pilot-exam scores with a wax and buff plus an interior and exterior detail. While Just Right's technicians shine tires and toss in a complimentary air-freshener, clients can explore nearby art galleries or visit a local salon.
