Park Avenue Car Wash restores rides to their squeaky-clean shine in as little as 15 minutes. The wash spritzes cars with a double-dose of lemon-scented pre-soak, which preps exteriors for a sudsy romp, all while keeping the engine from catching scurvy. A high-impact and specially designed spot-free rinse thwarts unsightly water spots before a helping of triple-shine turtle wax locks in paint’s luster. Once cars are clean, Park Avenue swiftly dries exteriors with its contouring dry system.
Bill Graham founded the first Graham Tire location in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in 1951, a time before dashboards blinked with digital readouts or engines buzzed with microchip brains. As cars have progressed, Graham Tire has kept pace. Still overseen by the Graham family, the current 22 locations employ ASE-certified mechanics who mend and maintain cars, trucks, SUVs, and farm equipment. Computerized engine analysis reveals rides’ performance levels and any problems, allowing the technicians to efficiently diagnose trouble without resorting to good mechanic, bad mechanic interrogations.
