Piedmont Heights Walking Tour

Two Minit “Gorilla” Car Wash

1830 Piedmont Avenue NE

This car wash began in 1954 with Howard Kinnon, who later sold the business to his employee Bobby Coleman, who then sold it to his son Paul, the current owner. George, the gorilla mascot, has been here since the late ‘70s and is much beloved by the community—far more than his predecessor, a creepy clown mannequin. He’s weathered a lot of storms and even survived a hot water heater explosion.
