In the past when my cars have become dirty I either washed them myself or took them to a car wash. those was the only options I knew, until yesterday that is. PaT the PT Cruiser had accumulated some road oil on the trip to Zapata the other day so I decided to find a car wash. What I found instead was a CAR SPA. Now, for those who were unaware of this option let me explain, Upon arrival an attendant takes your car off to never-never land while you go into this over-sized waiting area. In this case it was appointed like a large living room with couches and chairs. While waiting you had your choice of 5 TV's to watch or you could walk down the hall past the barber/beauty shop and the shoeshine chairs and on past the small boutique and jewelry cases to the snack bar, ice cream parlor. After about 30 minutes your car returns from never-never land, having been thoroughly washed. Then an attendant takes over who proceeds to clean the inside of the vehicle, the floor mats get special attention, the dash is cleaned, all the door sills are cleaned and the windows are cleaned. Then they go back to the outside where they dress down the outside with a light buffing. After about an hour your vehicle is returned to you. This detailed spa treatment was $24.95 and I know for a fact they did a better job than I would have done. This morning PaT is sitting proud in the sunshine.
Indiana won their game last night and will play again Saturday. Until then we will just have to be content enjoying the good life.
