Driving a shiny car is a great way to experience luxurious transportation without the hassle of chartering a yacht or riding a peacock to work. Transform regular vehicles into ritzy rides with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a full-service car wash at Joe's Seat Cover & Car Wash, valid at locations on North Seneca Street and North West Street (a $13.95 value).
Joe's Seat Cover & Car Wash's brushless cleaning system has been restoring show-room shines to cars since 1954. The full-service wash deluges cars with torrents of soap and water, sweeping away road filth without brushes that may damage the paint or give the bumper a rash. Techs plow through interior debris with hungry vacuums, and bring the shiny exteriors to a droplet-less glow with a delicate hand wash. Cockpits forfeit accumulated dust after a dash cleanup leaves surfaces spick-and-span, and window washes allow sunlight to filter in through streak-free ports. With the North West Street facility open seven days a week, drivers can squeeze washes into packed schedules without wedging cars into the bathtub. Today's deal doesn't expire until March 28, 2012, making it a good holiday gift idea.
