I really liked this carwash and I have posted pictures in the past. I even called the owner of the wash and he actually talked me out of it, which is interesting. The Fairfield wash location always looked like a good safe location. But I drove by today and it looks like someone might have been killed in the yard of the abandoned house behind the wash? Or maybe not? I’m not going to start any rumors!
I drove by the Morgan Road Car Wash today. Greg purchased it a couple days ago. They have put in another automatic and gone up on there self-serve prices from $2.00 to $2.50! So since December 10th, 2005 they have only gone up $.50….. inflation definately has not hit the self-serve market!
If you are interested, the wash has 2 Jim Coleman Water Wizards: 1 is the original while the other is a new 2.0 non-profiling. It has 2 Hamilton entry units and also a Jim Coleman Space Saver pumping unit for the self-serve bays.

This carwash has the same self serve equipment that my Hueytown carwash used to have (Clean Concepts). His equipment had a sticker for Magriff Inc of Birmingham Alabama 205-879-7234 on the self serve equipment. The phone number now is someones personal number.

This is from my trip back from the ICA meeting in April.
Front venting area: Dilling & Harris Max-Vend-Master with bill acceptor and an American AC2225 changer
Water Wizard setup and American entry unit install
My GPS said “Gatorland Carwash” at 14513 Gatorland Drive, Orlando, FL. but the name does not really matter.
First picture is the front view and the second picture it from the entry road next to a Flex-Serve.
Front view: I like the glass block and the road sign.
Vending: I like the “Suggestions” box and it is interesting that they replaced the Dilling & Harris Vend-Master product door. They replaced the plastic with metal.
Back view: First picture show painted arrows on the ground which is a good idea. I just doubt it would help.
Bay: Some interesting notes are the crappy foam brushes and the garbage can in every bay. I love the large timer conversion.
Automatic: PDQ Laser 4000 had an interesting purge setup in the automatic. Not really sure what or why it was purging though.
Vacuums: They has some weird vandalism problems? I actually had someone steal my gun off my Fragramatics fragrance vacuum before. They unscrewed the gun and took it.
I have been to this car wash before but I just happened to be driving by again. http://cwguy.com/?p=868
Looks like someone vandalized his vacuum and he has someone that is going through his vacuums for change.
Everything else looked about the same.
