An automated Arsenal Street car wash that has been dormant for nearly six years will again be welcoming cars this winter.

Last week Clifton Land Company LLC, headquartered in Clifton Springs, purchased the property which housed the former Bumpers, America’s Car Wash, at 20965 Arsenal St.

Clifton Land Company co-owner David J. Clements, who owns and operates 18 Classy Chassy Car Wash locations throughout Western and Central New York with business partner, Jeffrey T. Arnold, said he expects ongoing site renovations to continue throughout the fall.

The former Bumpers will operate under the Classy Chassy Car Wash name.

“It will take a few months to redevelop the site with all the equipment installation,” Mr. Clements said.  “Nothing every goes exactly as planned, but we certainly intend to be open by December.

On Wednesday, contractors from Jon T. Rich Construction LLC, Central Square, were seen breaking up gravel inside each of the car wash’s ports.  Mr. Clements did not say whether the Central New York construction firm would be the only contractor hired to finish renovations.

The car wash proprietor noted it wasn’t difficult when it came to choosing the vacant town of Watertown property for his next business venture.

“We target areas that have the right traffic and demographic patterns,” he said.  “We’re pretty excited about what we’re going to do with the wash process.”

Although he kept details mum, Mr. Clements claims Classy Chassy Car Wash will have a system that “is pretty exciting and definitely different than what you’re going to find anywhere else in town.

According to documents filed Sept. 27 at the Jefferson County clerk's office, FFB Properties, LLC, New Hartford, sold the property to Clifton Land Company, LLC, Port Gibson, N.Y., for $480,000. The property's total assessment is listed at $352,400.
