Granted, I would prefer to not actually wash my own car and i am a sucker for the pick neon elephant. But with a Seattle-size mortgage, somethings gotta give. I take my car to one of the local Brown Bear Car Wash places. It's cheap and everything you needs is there. The most impressive aspect is how everything is stationed and organized efficiently. Easy in, easy out. There's $15 bucks saved. Now I can afford those stone lions.
