You've just rolled into your drive, the exterior of your car is coated with the days mud, dust pollen, polution, road grime - you get the picture. Your tire rolls over the small plate mounted on your drive that sends the "open valve" signal via a puff of air (from tire rolling over plate) to a remote solenoid valve mounted on an air-pressurized tank of water. Water flows to multiple hi pressure lines (similar to what you see on pressure washers, and mounted in the cross sectional shape of your car) to jets that quickly and effectively rinse the schmegma off your beautiful black Mercedes so it may now drip dry in the garage. An additional kit would mount in the garage to blow dry your car in the elite package.

       Or you could just pay a kid to do it.

       You're gonna make all those garden tools real rusty.

       How’d you get schmegma on your car?

       If you had a beautiful black Mercedes and drove a milk float most of the time, wouldn't you? ;)

       My idea, relating to this idea would be a half-car wash half-garage. Alot of people have double garages yet only have one car that parks in it. My suggestion would to have a duel acting garage.   

       In one section of the garage (which is blocked off from the other by a wall) would be the wash section. This would include pressurized hot water to spray on your vehicle with side washers to clean the sides. You know, basically a smaller version gas station car-wash.   

       This would also include a dry option at the front of the garage for stage 2. Air blower will blow the water off your car if you drive slow enough backward out of your garage. After all this you can either turn off all stages and park in the car wash section leaving the other section to hold your lawn mowers, tools etc. or you can park in the dry garage section. Your choice.. Only downfall is that it may be a little noisy for your neighbours..
