    On Friday, the Body Beautiful Car Wash in Mission Valley transformed into the "Walter White's A1A Car Wash" in honor of the final season of "Breaking Bad," returning to television this Sunday.

    Fans of “Breaking Bad” – and their cars – are in for a real treat Friday at eight car wash businesses across the country, including one in San Diego’s Mission Valley area.

    To celebrate the highly-anticipated final season of “Breaking Bad,” which returns to AMC for its final eight episodes this Sunday, car wash locations in eight cities nationwide will temporarily rename themselves “Walter White’s A1A Car Wash.”

    This, of course, refers to the famous A1A Car Wash at the center of the series. At one point, Walter White (Bryan Cranston) worked part-time as a cashier at the car wash but quit after learning of his cancer diagnosis. Walt and his wife, Skyler White (Anna Gunn), later bought the business in order to use it as a money laundering facility.

    In San Diego, the Body Beautiful Car Wash located at 4282 Camino Del Rio North was rebranded Friday as “Walter White’s A1A Car Wash.”

    From 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. fans of the hit series were able to get a free basic car wash at the location, as well as a limited edition “Breaking Bad” air freshener.

    This offer was also valid for seven additional car wash businesses across the country, including: Carwash Express in Denver; Flagship Carwash in Washington, D.C., Jax Kar Wash in Detriot; Wheely Clean in Cleveland; Sunset Car Wash in Los Angeles; Bluewave Express in Dallas; Bluewave Express in Houston.
