Viking Car Wash

The Arizona Daily Star’s August 6 article Tucson Oddity: Haunting mural draws plenty of looks at the Viking Car Wash described this mural at 1120 S. 6th Avenue:

The article says that the mural was painted by Jesus Robles Jr. and that the car wash has been here since 1984. You can see the mural as you drive by on 22nd: look to the north, just west of the stoplight at 6th Avenue. (Or stop in for a car wash!) I drive by all the time but never noticed it. I took this photo on August 17th.

Update (January 5, 2015): There's a new mural here.
