    Anyone know what is going on over there? My wife just drove by to get gas and said that all of the entrances were coned off and there was a police car there.

    I'm curious myself, it has been coned off since Saturday.
    Was looking to get the cars washed.

    Hopefully they didn't close (again). We still have 30 washes on our prepaid wash card.

    Maybe they got raided by Sheriff Joe for employing Illegal Mexicans?

    There is a police car parked in between the pumps.

    I guess anybody that actually knows is staying quiet on this one.

    scottsdale auto salon went bankrupt again , dumbass Joe curry didn't make the payments and the bank came to take everything . Everyone with pre paid washes is screwed even if they open again . Which I hope to god they don't . And also all employees got screwed on their checks .

    If this is true file a chargeback with your credit card for the washes asap. If you bought them a long time ago and they won't let you say it was a recurring charge and they went out of business so you can claim it.

    Wow! That was a gnarly first post. I assume you might have been somehow been affected and are feeling a bit hostile at the moment. I can understand your frustration if you were part of the circus and lost out on money but to call Joe names and make allegations on a public forum seems to be putting yourself at risk legally.

    All the best to Joe and everyone there. These are difficult times and I wish the best for a great bunch of car enthusiasts.



    PS: I am out well over 30 prepaid washes and multiple prepaid detailing jobs, including their highest tier all day details. So I feel the pain too, but let's face it.....it just does not compare to having a business closed down.

    I agree. Joe is a member here and would certainly see this. We have aleady lost one cool car hang out this year (Julio G's) and it's a shame we have now lost another (assuming what's posted above is correct). Let's keep it civil until there is an offical version.

    Well, it is disappointing that they closed, for what ever reason. Especially since there really isn't any other gas station near DC Ranch. I liked that place because it was convenient.

    We were about to renew our prepaid wash card. Guess it is a good think that we didn't.

    So, does anybody know why there is a cop car parked in between the pumps all day?

    I hope that they are able to reopen and that this is just a temporary setback. Joe has always been good to me.

    Marcus, normally I would be all over this post like a bad spam suit worn by a guy who is not even subscribed to FChat.... but offering to honor at least some of the per paid wash cards that Joe can not is pretty awesome of you.

    :)

    It's an awesome gesture. Joe's shop was quite out of the way for me so I don't hold any cards, but I recognize this for the potentially good business move it is. Nice job, Marcus! Hope it works out well for everyone (including Joe.)

    I'm sorry, but I find this a bit creepy.
    I appreciate the sentiment, but maybe Joe is not down and out and may emerge elsewhere to honor his cards. Perhaps he should be given the opportunity to chime in on the ultimate prognosis before someone tries to "woo the widow at the funeral"

    I can see your point but after this long it is highly unlikely that Joe does not know about this thread and the people posting about their pre-paid cards. I imagine that if he wanted to he would have post on the 20th. And since it is at least $200 of free work that the guy is offering, I would not call it "wooing the widow" so much as helping a brother out of a hard time.

    1) Joe and his family are people I have had the privilege to get to know professionally and personally. I wish them nothing but the best!

    2)Marcus does a GREAT JOB and has been doing my cars for the past several months. He is a very good man. I am not at all surprised that he would step into the void as he has. Thanks for all you do Marcus!

    I agree. Those of us who use Marcus' service and know him, know that he is a great guy who goes out of his way to try not to offend people. I don't think he was being predatory. I think he is willing to go out of his way to earn people's business by offering a great deal to people who may be in need of his services. A win-win situation.

    You guys are welcome to bring cars to us for service and detailing. Bad news is we are are Gilbert. Kind of a hike for the north scottsdale crowd.

    The gas at 56th and bell can be a little unrealiable.
    If you want the same exact gas that you were getting at scottsdale auto salon, go to Cave Creek and Union hills... north west corner. The pumps at Joes are/were owned by this guy.
