|The shine is like glass|
Recently I had the opportunity to get my Ford Explorer detailed at Detail 301 in Beverly Hills. Located deep below Rodeo Drive in the garage for trendy shops, Detail 301 provides all the usual car wash and detail services you would expect. It's sister business, AutoVault, stores some fairly high end autos for celebrities and other movers and shakers when they're not driving their favorite Bugatti, Porsche, Lamborghini, etc.
|Nice clean interior|
At $235 for an SUV ($215 for passenger cars), it's not cheap. It's Beverly Hills, people. However when you consider the average detail job at your local car wash is about $75 - $115, factoring in the high level of work Detail 301 performs, I actually find this a bargain. Unless you routinely drive through mudholes or you allow your eight year old to eat ice cream cones daily in the back seat, this clean job is going to last for a while and you may not need as many car washes going forward.
|Hot looking tires!|
Detail 301 is located at:
440 North Rodeo Drive (parking garage for Brooks Brothers)
(near Santa Monica Blvd)

One of the cool "tricks" the building has is the elevator speaks out the floor you've arrived at when the doors open.
I'm on the sixth floor, and everyday when I exit on my way to the office, a pleasant voice announces we've reached our destination by proclaiming "sixth floor."
This morning however, as the elevator reached my landing, the message was "sixth level."
Immediately, as I exited, I thought that was odd. "Doesn't it normally," I said in my mind "say "sixth floor?"
As soon as that thought crossed my mind I heard the elevator say "Floor. Going down."
Not only can my elevator talk it appears it can read minds. I need my coffee, stat!

She had taken him to a field near her home. Overgrown with weeds, a cat ambled by, otherwise the place was sort of hauntingly beautiful.
I didn't mention that amongst that sea of unmaintained, tall as your knees grass, was a line-up of every vehicle Kimberly had ever owned. Starting with a much rusted out 84 Rabbit to a still fairly decent looking Lexus.
When Kimberly bought a new car, she never sold the old one. Instead, she deposited it on the unused swatch of land her father had bought in 1973.
Joshua scanned each vehicle, each different, each the same in the their abandonment.
And he waited for Kimberly. He would wait for a while.
