From what we’ve been able to determine about this old-fashioned type of car wash, a car was first motored around in the pool of water to flush any mud or dirt off of its undercarriage, and then the car was driven into a stall where the car wash was completed in the customary manner.

Over here at Petrolicious, we’re looking forward to this autumn weekend (even though it doesn’t feel much like autumn here in Los Angeles!). We came across some cool automotive things around the web this week and wanted to share them with you:
Frank Kayser took some gorgeous photos at Le Mans Classic 2012.
Car cufflinks from Classic Throttle Shop are definitely going on our must-buy lists.
We loved Urban Outlaw, the video of Magnus Walker and his inspiring Porsche collection. If you haven’t watched it yet, you should. It’s definitely worth 30 minutes of your time.

We sincerely appreciate all the support you’ve shown to Petrolicious so far. Thank you.
