Title: Desert Car Wash

I found the focus of my latest project just down the road from my Palm Springs home, The Desert Car Wash. The same year that the car wash opened Frank Sinatra visited the town and changed it forever. I could imagine Frank rolling through with his Rat Pack buddies getting one of his American classics cleaned. Maybe he left a memorable tip, since he only carried hundred dollar bills in his wallet, I've heard.
