The vehicle-scrubbing specialists at Paul's Car Wash & Lube Center buff cars to a burnished shine with hand-powered washes. As the half-hour Elite Wash unfolds, cleaning technicians tend to the outsides of cars, bathing them in a sudsy lather and rinsing off caked-on mud, insects, and junkyard magnets. All four rubber rollers gleam after a wheel-brightener and tire-dressing treatment; to care for the rest of the car's body, the staff applies a clear coat sealant and Rainbow wax to leave the exterior protected and shiny. Finally, a vacuum tears through the interior in search of loose filth before a sweet-smelling air freshener settles down to disguise the car's natural factory odor.
When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
