about us


A car wash owned by someone with a passion for cars is sure to be a car wash you can trust your vehicle at. 


As a child, Michael Boake (Mike), would spend part of the day every Sunday with his dad, the ritual involved grabbing a Pepsi and washing the vehicles for the week. It was something that would always be a great bonding experience between the two of them.


After spending over 18 years traveling around the world in Oil and Gas jobs, Mike hung up his hard hat and coveralls and decided to take that memory and help other parents share their own rituals with their kids. 


As an avid vehicle lover, well known for the 'Trident Truck', Mike has always researched which products work best for vehicles, inside and out, so he knew that he only wanted the best in his wash. Paul Romaniuk, a well-known man in the car wash industry, noted Mike's passion and connected him with WashPros, and West Country Pump and Filtration so that by bringing in Turtle Wax Pro soaps, plus the best water, meant he could give customers the best.  


Mike purchased the car wash, formerly known as 1/8th Mile in June of 2018 and has been transforming it into a place for the community ever since.


Mike lives in Okotoks with his wife and 2 dogs. His parents also both live in Okotoks, and both provide a huge base of support.
