Snowstorms have kept these detailers busy

COLUMBIA, MO — The staff at Joe Machens Automotive Group is hand washing or detailing at least 100 each week.

COLUMBIA, MO — Two big winter storms here have brought in a lot of business to carwashes and detail centers in the area, the Missourian reported.

The March 5 story said the hand washers and detailers at the car dealership Joe Machens Automotive Group, are cleaning up to 100 cars each week.

Cars, which are traded to the dealership, are detailed before being presented for sale on the lot. They are all washed and waxed and then dried by hand.
