    • Narrator: It's where we wash our cars, where it spins, it sprays and it's powerful enough to suck up a bowling ball. How about some tips for doing it yourself? Or a challenge to clean this stuff off a $160,000 Porsche. And how do you clean a train that carries radioactive waste? Time to get blown away. Now, Car Wash, on Modern Marvels.

    • Over 60% of full service car wash customers are 50 years and older.

    • The world's most expensive car detailer works in the U.K. and only does exteriors. His rate is over $9,000 a job.
