Best Car Wash - 2011
Rain Tunnel Express
In the right frame of mind, a car wash isn't some Saturday-afternoon chore or a recourse against scads of birdshit — it's a ritual cleansing, a baptism, a rebirth. Hell, we humans should be so lucky to come out all shiny and new after our daily washings. So when it's time for a little vehicular renewal, head to the Sappington location of Rain Tunnel Express. The long driveway leaves ample room for a line of vacuum cleaners to get the insides clean, which serves as an aperitif for the main event. The standard exterior wash, just $5, frankly, does the trick, though you can upgrade if you wish to get really fancy. If you're in for a hardcore clean, the folks at Rain Tunnel Express offer full detail work right next to the titular tunnel.
