I remember my Dad always telling me that a clean car ran better! It was one of those things that stuck in my head along with "change the oil every 3,000 miles and that car will run till the doors fall off!" He bought my first car for me when I was 16, a 1964 Rambler. Now, many of you may be thinking what in the world is a Rambler, but others will know exactly what I am talking about! It was a 16-year-old car, faded and didn't even run, but it was sentimental to him because it was manufactured in the year of my birth. He completely refurbished this car and when he was finished, it looked brand new! So, off I went, having been taught by a great man how to properly take care of it. Well, the one thing I did most often was wash my car! Three and four times a week as a matter of fact. So, long story short, I believe he was right; as long as my car was sparkling clean, I felt like it was still "brand new" and was convinced it also ran better!
I gave you my background in car care 101 to introduce a new car wash in the St. Augustine area that I cannot stop talking about! Hopefully, I have set the stage so that you have a full understanding how important a good car wash is to me. The name of this car wash is Datil Wash (just like the pepper). We paid them a visit last week and I was completely impressed with the operation! This is a full-service car wash that offers packages from a full detail to a quick shine. If you’re like me and you want to keep your ride shiny and clean on a regular basis, you can choose one of their monthly packages which are very affordable. If you are a business with a fleet of vehicles or would like to include your family on a package, they have DISCOUNTED memberships! As I walked around checking out each area of the car wash, I was greeted by huge smiles from the staff..........Now, I don't know about you but this is a defining factor for me when I choose a service to give my business too! As I stood at the exit that rolls out the finished vehicle for the final touches, I had already made up my mind that Datil Wash would be getting my business every week!
To end this story, I have owned several cars throughout my life but never forgot the maintenance tips that my Dad gave me when I was 16 years old and have always searched out local car washes to keep my ride clean! I’d like to encourage you to pay a visit to Datil Wash at 145 Movie Street, next door to the Epic Theater for an awesome detail and car wash.
