Busy day at local car washes

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -  The warmer weather that swept through the area Wednesday, became a driving factor for those looking to wash their cars.

Andrew Vonderhaar, with Auto Shine Car Wash in Quincy, said Wednesday was one of his busiest days in months. In fact, Vonderhaar said more than 500 cars came through the wash.

Driver Brad Robertson was out washing his truck at Auto Shine Car Wash early Wednesday. Robertson said he wanted to get in while the weather still allowed for it.

"Get the salt off and keep my truck looking nice," Robertson said. "It's how I get back and forth for work and I want to keep it good for as many years as I can."

Many of the cars that came through the car wash were covered in salt from the roads, which Vonderhaar said needs to cleaned off your vehicle to avoid any damage.
