Jesse Nielson, owner of JN Auto, welcomed a large crowd to the highly-anticipated ribbon cutting on Friday afternoon at Tine Shine, Huntington’s new car wash. Chad Norton, the shop manager and newly-appointed car wash manager, explained that the car wash is one-of-a-kind, ”state of the art,” especially in Carbon or Emery counties. He stated they chose an outdoor theme and each wash, moose, elk, deer or antelope, has special features.
“Emery County just got a little cleaner with the opening of the Tine Shine car wash at JN Auto,” the Emery County Business Chamber (ECBC), which hosted the ribbon cutting ceremony, explained. “The car wash has a wildlife theme as the super duper wash is called the moose; the elk is next; then the deer and the antelope is the basic wash. The moose gets you eight minutes of cleaning action. The brushes come out and wash your vehicle. Then, it’s rinsed to perfection and then you slowly pull through the extra large blow dryers. The automatic car wash is great for these cold days when you don’t want to get out of your car.”
Tine Shine also features two wash bays that are large enough to fit semi trucks and camp trailers. Other amenities were described to the many in attendance, including the vacuum system upon exiting the wash.
The automatic car wash was christened by Gayla Guymon, the wife of former Emery County Sheriff Lamar Guymon, who was invited to be the first one through the car wash. Many followed Guymon through the wash as cars lined up for their chance in the bays.
Tine Shine is located at JN Auto, 465 North Main in Huntington. Residents should keep their eye on JN Auto as the business grows with the ongoing construction of the quick lube portion of the business. The quick lube will have a waiting area and a bay dedicated to quick oil changes for the public.
“Stop by and see the friendly team at JN Auto and experience the latest in car wash technology as they take car care to a new level in Emery County,” the ECBC concluded.
