Thrifti-way Auto Wash –

 One of the first automatic car washes in Minot opened on October 15, 1965 at Highway 83 South and 17th Avenue. This location is now Taco Bell. The deluxe service was $2.00. this consisted of the vehicle being vacuumed before entering the wash line. The car moved through the wash pushed by rollers on the tires, (no hooks or chains). The first wash was a warm wash with detergent, top, sides and bottom. The second wash was the rinse to remove the dirt and soap. The final application was a spray wax and then hand towel dry. The express service was $1.00 and was the same as the deluxe without the vacuum and hand towel drying
