Paradise Car Wash

Just like a new haircut can make you feel ten pounds lighter, a good car wash can make you believe your car really isn't a piece of junk. No one knows this better than the friendly folks at Paradise Car Wash. For less than the price of most haircuts (a full-service wash costs $11.99), their skilled sudsters will have your old beater looking like she just rolled off the lot. (Oh, and if it rains later that day, they'll rewash it the next day for free.) While the wash team works on eliminating the smell of Merit Ultra Lights and Wendy's from your upholstery, be sure to browse the office/waiting area/gift shop, where you will find everything from ashtray beads to greeting cards. Then, on your way to the spectators' window, help yourself to some complimentary coffee and exchange pleasantries with Speedy, Paradise's resident green-winged macaw. You'll feel like royalty as you watch four guys polish the chrome on your Chevette to a blinding shine. (Express detailing services are also available--for those with a little more spare change under the seats.)
