Professional Carwashing & Detailing – Spam/Email?

I just got a spam email from Professional Carwashing & Detailing about Jim Coleman’s “Hot New Look!” and by the email it hints that maybe Jim is changing their color sceme?  Does Jim Coleman really want to keep up with the “lastest color tends for your carwash”?  I hope so I really like Jim Coleman stuff but that teal color or the Lamborghini? Come on!

The product they were promoting in the email was also interesting:   a vacuum and air machine, which is a great idea.  Not really sure why it needs 2 coin acceptors though?  But the sticker is better!

I really liked this product.  This could replace your neon and stand up to vandalism better.  I lost their show specials but their website says $500 for 100 foot roll.  SunLitz LEDs  by Rain Tunnel not really sure about their name.  SunLiz?  What is that suppose to be Sunled?

I really liked this product!  But he did not have any brochures and business cards so I wrote in on one of my cards and I lost it.  But you can set up the credit card processing through anyone unlike Etowah Valley’s system and you can also get a Hamilton credit card reader for it I think it costs around $2800?  The system is for 6 ports and it costs around $6000?  All it uses is 1 cat5 run to connect and high speed internet and you can repair the credit card reader!

Now I am going to have to try some Microcoin coin acceptors.  These seem great!  But if you look above the coin acceptor there is a little black box.  That is part of the coin acceptor…… that is CRAPPY!  But everything else sounds great.  No tool opening to clear jams and seems easy to program.  Will not jam with really crappy coins, it has a 2 year warranty, and it can be repaired reasonably unlike IDX  X-10 (the guy said $60-$80).  Plus you can program tons of coins and it is not that bad of a price (retails for $219.95).
