It’s like “Hot Tub Time Machine” but for your car.
Belmont Car Wash & Detailing in Waverley Square will be marking a half century in business today, Saturday, June 21, by returning to 1964 prices; a buck for a Soft Touch wash (regularly $9.99) and $2 for the Super Shine wash (a $13.99 value) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The ribbon cutting at the renovated facility at 521 Trapelo Rd. – adjacent Shaw’s Supermarket and the MBTA commuter rail line – will occur at 10 a.m. kicking off a full day of activities including food, entertainment, music, giveaways and a display of 1964-vintage autos.
One of Belmont’s longest running family-owned businesses – run today by Paul and Adam Tocci – recently finished a massive renovation to both the interior and exterior of the facility, making improvements to the wash-tunnel equipment as well as the customer waiting area. It is also known for activity supporting school and charitable causes by allowing them to fundraise at the site.
“This is an exciting time, and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate our anniversary with our community,” said General Manager Adam Tocci in a press release.
“Our father established this wash in 1964, and my brother and I continue to do everything we can to make sure Belmont Car Wash and the Tocci name are synonymous with good neighbors and strong business partners for the town.”
