Jun 23, 2014 |
1924: An early concept of the car wash in Chicago. Note the stark lack of bikinis.
1946: The bikini is invented in Paris. By an automobile engineer. This is called “foreshadowing.”
1951: Car wash moguls celebrate their 3 millionth wash with a “beauty pageant.” Getting warmer...
1963: Volkswagen puts this on the cover of their magazine. Sales probably weren’t hurt by it.
1976: Rose Royce releases “Car Wash.” Oh, so that’s who sings that song.
1992: The Bikini Carwash Company comes out on VHS. Betamax finally gives up.
2001: Liv Tyler does unspeakable things to a Geo Metro in One Night at McCool’s.
2003: Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle gets 2.5 stars from Roger Ebert. Presumably he missed this scene.
2005: The General Lee takes Jessica Simpson for a spin in Dukes of Hazzard.
2008: Izabel Goulart. A ’67 Mercury Cougar. One extremely lucky sponge.
2011: Cameron Diaz’s “charmingly brazen performance” in Bad Teacher.
Beyond the Scope of What We Perceive as Time: Gisele. Doing this.
