These Guys Turn
Cars into Stars

Properly maintaining your car's appearance is more than a simple wash an wax every so often, as we learned from Darren Buell and Barry Meguiar (see page 26).  It's an in-depth and time-consuming process mastered over time.  If you're more comfortable leaving it to a pro, there are some great services out there.  Here, we profile three of the best and list six other top detailers from across the country.  

Joshua Ottmann
​     An engagement ring turned Joshua Ottmann's auto-detailing hobby into a business.  To save up money for the ring, he detailed cars on the side and became aware of the demand for proper car-care services.
     "The list of cars grew larger and larger until this became my full-time passion," he says.
     Credit Ottmann's 2002 Chevrolet Corvette for his extensive detailing knowledge: "When I purchased my Corvette, I realized I had to take my detailing to a new level. I learned about two-bucket washing and clay-barring and ultimately bought a random orbital buffer to properly care for my Corvette."
     After 4 years on the job in Grand Prairie, Texas, Ottmann remains enthusiastic about his work: "I don't detail for the money, I do it because I love cars."
