The pink elephant neon sign is among Seattle’s most beloved and recognizable landmarks. The full-service car wash has been serving the city since 1951. What few people realize is that the original owners, Archie, Dean and Eldon Anderson, actually invented the automatic car wash! That’s right, the Elephant Car Wash was the first automatic car wash ever. As a matter of fact the Elephant name comes from a publicity stunt from walking Circus Elephants through the car wash to prove how gentle it would be on your vehicle. More importantly, the Elephant has remained an innovative and thriving Seattle business for over 65 years.
