The magic wand is the name for a huge chain of semi tacky self car washes. They are definitely not in Beverly Hills, more like blue collar neighborhoods where an expensive car wash is often not an option. I have been paying for a deluxe car wash because the parts of me that haven't fallen off are hanging by a thread. The last few weeks, I've missed the regular car wash because I was on other business, so I dragged my weary old bones over to the magic wand. You put two dollars in the slot and it will get you a car wash if you can move like the Marvel comics character, the flash. He is the fastest moving person in the world, and that's what it would take to wash your car with two bucks worth of time. Five or six dollars are more like it. This car wash was the rattiest one's I've seen, and I've seen a lot. the Florissant lights give off a ghastly light that exaggerates the crappy paint on the crumbling walls and ceiling. The next day, a crew sandblasted the walls and repainted everything.
