My car is dirty. I mean frickin’ filthy. But I’m a cheap bastard, and I don’t much relish paying the $12 for the standard LA-style get-out-the-car-and-wait-around-for-a-while wash. Even if it happens to be the magical day in which a place cuts their price to $8 or $9, I don’t like it. But then again, I’m also a lazy bastard, so I don’t want to go to the cheap, Footloose-style joint.
What I want is the car wash of my childhood. The one where you stay in the car and drive through, getting to experience the thrill of potenital drenching whilst keeping all snug and toasty behind the wheel. Are there ANY of these places in LA? There was one at a Shell station at the corner of La Cienaga and Olympic, but as soon as I found it, they ripped it out.
