The Muscle Car Spot with Lamar Skarda

In July 2022, we visited Lamar Skarda to take photos of his car wash and chat with him about his experience in the industry. He owns Kwik Car Wash in El Paso, TX, which will be featured in December of the 2023 Kleen-Rite Calendar. After the visit to his wash, he was nice enough to invite us to his garage where he stores his stable of vintage cars.

The Muscle Car Spot

The creation of Lamar’s mini museum didn’t come easy. He bought the property in 2014, but because of some zoning issues wasn’t able to begin building the garage until 2016. It was worth it, though, as it looks great today with its tall open ceiling, clean white walls, and smooth concrete floor. Aside from cars, decorations in the space include colorful signs (including the custom neon sign featured here), beautiful stained glass windows, and relics from his auto racing days. Enjoy the pictures we were lucky enough to take – Lamar has some real gems in his collection! You can also see this layout in print in the Summer 2023 issue of Kleen-Rite’s magazine, the Kleen-Scene.

The aptly named “Muscle Car Spot” houses some absolutely fantastic automobiles, and they’re all clean as a whistle from the engine bay to the interior. The cars are all painted in various striking shades of blue, which adds an interesting element to his collection that truly makes it his own.
