A car scrub with Wi-Fi and a fresh-food restaurant might seem overkill, but we're talking about the Scottsdale Auto Salon, which offers an express wash and imported beers for you and a Victory Lane with concierge service, hand-washing, and champagne for us. As Suns broadcaster Al McCoy would say, "Oh, brooooother."
The Salon grand-opens with an appearance by Motorola/Andretti Green Team superstar Danica Patrick, which is fitting, since two of the Salon's eight gas pumps dispense 100-octane racing fuel. We can see you now, with your trembling hand to your mouth, saying, Its too good to be true! Well, dry your tears of joy, because owner Dr. Arnold Curry plans to tap into the burgeoning Phoenix International Raceway market. That means laid-back barbecues, racecar-celeb types, and stretch limos. Oh, brooooother.
