Puddles Car Wash's owner has loved cars since childhood and continues to care for them as an adult by establishing an oasis where vehicles can rest and get grime washed away.

While four-wheelers wallow in soapsuds and carnauba wax, their owners can visit the business lounge to relax in massage chairs, watch TV, surf the Internet, nibble on snacks, and stock up on auto accessories, such as air fresheners and inflatable backseat drivers.
