Car wash dinosaur. Nutty Car Wash

The car wash is indeed nutty! There are a ton of statues from dinosaurs to flamingos to Marilyn Monroe. We felt kind of silly going there and not getting our car washed, but the guys who worked there said to feel free to look at everything, sit on things, take pictures, etc. We took a ton of photos of us sitting on lions, fondling the lady pirate, and being mauled by the giant polar bear. Definitely worth it if you are into this kind of thing. I also believe that you are able to "talk to" the giant Santa in the month of December, although we weren't able to try that feature since it was July.

We went to the Classic Auto Wash in Cromwell, CT. It's nuttier than described, definitely worth some attention. It's got an animated Clark Kent/Superman in a phone booth, a lot of animated clowns in the back, a giraffe and some big pink flamingos, among various other odd things. They pipe music throughout the car wash.
