Bikini Car Wash causing controversy
KENS 5 Eyewitness News ^ | 05/08/2008 | Selena Hernandez

A controversial car wash is generating more than just suds.

Some parents and church members say they want the Bikini Car Wash kicked to the curb and out of their neighborhood.

With women bikini-clad and bearing more than just sponges, at a newly opened car was on South Flores, you can get your car hand-washed, waxed and dried, complete with a view.

Even those without cars go to soak in the sight of the sultry suds.

"I got a bike for now, but pretty soon I'm going to get me a car," Adam Tagle said. "I think it's wonderful."

Yet not everyone agrees.

"Nobody wants it there," one woman said

This naughty novelty has some South Side residents in a lather.

"It's just not an appropriate place for this type of business," Harlandale United Methodist Church member Barbara Wright said.

The Bikini Car Wash sits within feet of an elementary and middle school, and right across the street from Harlandale United Methodist Church.

Kids were seen gawking at the women washers.

"Before we opened, we went around asking permission from the church. They gave us permission to go ahead and do it. The pastor said that he was all for it," Jackie Pichardo said.

"I do find that very surprising, and in fact, I called the minister after hearing that, and he said he did not do that," Wright said.

Although some parents and church members say they want to clean their community of this controversial car wash, those at the business say it's just clean fun.

"It's not so much the people who are working there, it's the people they are drawing that scares me," one woman said.

"We're out in the open, doing everything in the open, so somebody would be able to see real quick if we're doing something wrong," Pichardo said.

The business has its proper permits. Meanwhile, the pastor of the church has sent a letter stating his concerns to the city

If there are no laws being broken, what's the problem?

Now watch the city council change the zoning or some such thing to put the car wash out of business.

One is the use of sex to obtain funds for a cause, and is temporary, the other is an attempt to use sex for a profitable business.

Are either wrong? No.
