The pic posted above is a actually central vaccuum I believe. This is what I've got and it is *awesome* for the car. Pics up everything between the cracks.

I've got a central vac and it seems to be much stronger than the ones up at the do-it-yourself car wash that i was forced to use when our vac system broke.

Classic Motoring sells one called the vac and blow. They make a wall mount version and it has some amazing power. And as the name says it vacuums and blows.

Yep we sell the Vac & Blo line from Metro, very high quality and has all the proper attachments for any detailer from amature to professional (we have one in our shop).

Here's a pic of the one G352M3 is referring to:



Here are some attachments:



They sell it for $299.99, if you want I can see if I can get it cheaper for you, let me know if your interested. We definately stand by Metro Vacs though.

I just bought this vac a while ago and paid $300 for it, which it was worth it but I just saw it on sale for $240 - have it and love it if you are looking for a great Vac and Blow for the wall
