Does anyone know of one of those self-wash car wash bays in or near Shadyside in Pittsburgh? You know, the ones that you drive your car into and they have hoses and suds so you can clean your own car? I don't know exactly what they're called. Thanks.

Hm, there's one on Liberty Ave on the border of the Strip/Lawrenceville/Bloomfield, across from where they no longer brew Iron City beer. Heh. Now I really sound like a Pittsburgher. ;-) Not exactly close, but within a few miles. Since you have to drive there anyway, that really isn't too bad. If you're coming down Liberty heading towards downtown, it'll be on your right, on a downhill slope, just after the road makes a bend to the left. I can't think of anywhere where I've passed one closer. There is a drive in automatic type at the Shell station on Baum.

There is also one on Fifth Avenue near Frankstown Avenue. It is on the right while leaving Shadyside and heading towards Aspinwall and points north.

I don't think so, if it's the one near Lawrenceville you are talking about.

The one Greg is talking about is the same one I'm talking about. I don't know the address, but I'm sure it can be found either through Google or using Google maps or Google Earth.

For the one I mentioned, 32xx Liberty sounds right. It's between 32nd and 33rd, which are not particularly well-defined cross streets. If you used that address in Google Maps or whatever you should be in good shape. Although I have to think from all the way in Squirrel Hill there must be a closer one. Just haven't driven around there enough recently to know where it is. You might want to try the one on 5th Ave near Frankstown Ave that was mentioned above. I can't picture it, but you can map it, just put "5th ave and frankstown ave pittsburgh pa" into Google Maps, no problem.

There's no touch-free automatic in the Liberty Ave location if I remember correctly, only the bays where you get out and manually spray the hose.
