Bringing vehicles back to showroom condition

Anyone can wash a vehicle, but one local auto detailer is constantly striving to go above and beyond a wash.

Hodgenville Auto Detailing is located on 270 Herbert Howell Road. The business specializes in cleaning the inside and outside of vehicles, which includes buffing, waxing, shampooing the inside, degreasing the motor and more.

Owner Brian Louthan said he has been detailing vehicles since he was in high school and that he owned a auto detailing business in Elizabethtown before opening Hodgenville Auto Detailing.

“I opened a big auto detailing shop in Elizabethtown in 2000 and I detailed for a lot of the big car dealerships in that area too,” Louthan said. “I closed that (Elizabethtown) shop in 2006 and started driving a truck (semi-truck) in 2008. I opened Hodgenville Auto Detailing and did detailing on the weekends during that time, about one or two vehicles each weekend. Then I quit driving a truck in 2014 and started picking up detailing more.”

Louthan said that he also does pick-up and delivery of vehicles. He said that his volume of business is starting to increase.

“People are busy and I try to accommodate that. I pick up and deliver a lot of peoples’ cars while they are at work,” Louthan said. “I’ve always been interested in vehicles and always kept them clean. I always try to bring every vehicle I detail back to showroom condition. I always tell people ‘a clean vehicle is my style and if it doesn’t shine, it ain’t mine.’”
