The gutted automatic car wash control box you see in picture probably went belly up due to the opening of Champion car wash near Murphy Express gas station in Roswell,NM.
Roswell Rapid Wash had served the community for many years from its perch not too from Farleys.
Automatic car washes have advantages including not having to pay unemployment, no labor cost, no need to process risky personal checks, minimal inventory control, open 365/24/7, bookkeeping and insurance can be handled by proprietor, no hassles creating employee schedule or dealing with disputes. Despite all these clear cut incentives and advantages, ruthless competition apparently overwhelmed Roswell Rapid Wash.
