SURF CITY GARAGE 
MADE IN AMERICA

Made in America - a concept not often remembered by today's car care consumers. But what if you could purchase the best possible detailing products for your ride AND know that they were made right here in the USA?

 

Today, and always, we manufacture Surf City Garage Enthusiast GradeŽ detailing products in Huntington Beach, California - America's Surf City capital of the world. SCG's headquarters are located right next door to our state-of-the-art production facility so we can ensure that our top quality standards are consistently packed into every bottle we sell.

That's how Tim Miller, the founder of SCG, can make his personal guarantee that ensures that if they are not the best products you have ever used, he will personally buy them back!

 

Miller's story is legendary. Owner of a then small collection of muscle cars, he set out to engineer detailing products that would keep his own cars looking their best. Today that collection has grown to over 125 cars and the detailing products he originally made to care for his cars are true to his original formulas. 

 

At Surf City Garage, Your Ride's Worth It!

ASK THE EXPERTS


 

Q: Dear Surf City, I'm relatively new at Car Care and it is easy for me to become confused over some of the abbreviations that I see on your site.  Is there any way you can decode some of these abbreviations for me so I can "get in the club" with regards to car care? - Sam E., Portland, OR

 

A: Dear Sam, whether you're a seasoned detailing/car forum contributor or new to the world of making things shine, there's always those times when you run across terms that just don't make sense to you or you've never seen before. We selected a few of the most common terms below:

 

LSP - Last Step Product

RIDS - Random Introduced Damage or Random Deep Scratches

CC - Clear Coat

BC - Base Coat

BC/CC - Base Coat Clear Coat (paint)

SS - Single Stage (paint)

AIO - All In One

PC - Porter Cable (7424, 7424xp, 7336, 7336sp)

OTC - Over the Counter

RO - Random Orbital (polisher)

DA - Dual Action (polisher)

OPM - Oscillations Per Minute

RPM - Revolutions Per Minute

MF - Microfiber

IPA - Isopropyl Alcohol

 

I hope this helps! If you have other abbreviations we can decipher, please let us know on the Surf City Garage forum.  While you're there, check out the SCG Library tailored by our very own Detailing Pros.

 


SCARY STORIES

From The Haunted Muscle Car Collection

 

If you are lucky enough to take a tour through the collection with Tim Miller, he will recite from memory the story as to how each car became part of this awesome collection. Each automotive story generates a different emotion. Some cars have been saved from sure destruction and restored to original beauty by Tim and his restoration team, and others have retained all their original parts using only SCG products to make them show ready.

 

As with people, the stories about the cars can be somewhat mysterious. The following are stories told by employees, past and present, that most often occurred late at night. If nothing else, it sounds like a good reason NOT to work overtime!

 

"Usually when I am here at night alone, I will hear the upstairs bathroom doors close on their own. Some might say that it is a draft, but there aren't any windows in the upstairs back section.

 

One of our employees a couple of years ago swore that he heard a little girl laughing behind a door to a room that is just used for electronics storage. He was walking by the door, no one else was around, and he said that he could clearly hear something from behind the door."Matt Rigdon, Vice President of Sales

 

"I was with one of our mechanics in the collection showroom one night moving a car and all of the sudden the horn from another car in the collection started honking. Tim said that it was just an electronic malfunction, but they said that the sound was too clear and long of a honk to be some kind of short circuit."  - Carrie Piscotty, Operations and Corporate Branding

 

"One of our former employees was working in the collection one evening and she felt something was behind her. She looked around and there was no one around. She continued to walk and felt something brush her shoulder-length hair back. She left quickly and never saw anyone."Tania Ciochina, Marketing & Communications
