Here is the high end car wash that went down.

Here are two artifacts around my area. If I get a chance I will photograph the high end one a little further away. As a footnote I wash my own cars with detailer's soap and microfiber wash mit.
He seems fascinated with both car washes and gas stations I am beginning to realize.  I warned him about the car wash business based upon what we have observed in my area of closures since Covid.  My father ran a Texaco gas station on Woodbine Avenue and Steeles in Toronto back in the early 70s but could not make a go of it.  i still remember the uniform my grandfather had as an employee at the station.  Maybe the son can get into selling car products.  Who knows?  I suggested grave digger or running a funeral home (the dark side of me coming out) but he wants nothing to do with it.  Lawyer is also off the table.  That one I get.

Has anyone else noticed a proverbial graveyard of car washes in their area since Covid?  I count at least three, one of them a large upscale one.  Eerie. I should get photos and post.
It's probably how I drive.  Not exactly seat of the pants with my grannie shifting at 3,000 rpms.  He did like the Boss better because I got on it a little more.  No doubt once he gets behind the wheel (of my Towncar on life support) next week (if he passes the test for his learner's permit), he may develop a greater interest.  If not, we are all on our individual journeys through life.  He will have to find his own path.

Looks to be a great event. Wish I was there.

That is a truism and part of the vernacular I was exposed to growing up in the 70s. Should not be deleted.
He sure isn't into cars like me. At his age I would have poured over this car. The ride ended and he just walked away. I have to elicit commentary about the Shelby.  He also added 6 pounds since he arrived July 1st from Germany. He needs to shed some weight. ASAP But he also grew half an inch since here. Seems unreal.
I agree with you gentlemen.  The manufacturers are not interested in keeping the technology alive.  It dies out in a few years and then you are on your own to figure out how to make it work.  Or not work.  So the current crop of cars are more enjoy the cars in the moment. 
It is a close shave between the Boss 302 and a Challenger 392. Both are great cars!

The fastest Challenger 392 this 2012 Boss 302 owner ever encountered.

we have all seen a known fast vehicle loose to another that was not as fast

it all comes down to the driver and his insanity factor
Yes, you are absolutely correct. A car and a man are a totally symbiotic relationship each complimenting the other.

I remember that car from the magazines. I much prefer Ford doing the 2005 and 2006 homage. And of course the 2016 et seq
