About Us

A drawing hangs on the wall of Michael Racine spacious third-floor office above his WashLand Car Wash. The old sketch is evidence of how he wanted his car wash to look and perform. His dreams of car wash ownership actually date back +25 years.

Today is a dream came true, combining a top-performing automatic and four self-serve bays at 310 Margaret St. in Plattsburgh, NY.

The WashLand trademark name as applied to both the car wash and the longer-established Washland Laundry-Mat.

Michael’s father Roland Racine was his business partner in some ventures and great source of inspiration, courage and knowledge, until he pass away in 2008.

WashLand Car Wash doesn’t need attendants as such. Racine and his long-time assistant, Glenn Brawn who has been with him for more the 12 year keep things picked up, with help from his wife Isabel and Isabel’s son Gino everything runs smoothly. Also part of the team is Bonnie Whalen, who manages his multiple apartment units, does a great job of keeping him organized.

One of the most unusual aspects of WashLand Car Wash is the structure in which it is housed. The entire floor above the car wash is comprised of four upscale apartments, and Racine’s large, sky lighted office is above that on a third level. From his office, he can see his Laundry-Mat and some of the 50 apartments he now owns. He can also view nearby Lake Champlain, situated on the border between New York and Vermont. All of his enterprises are within a five-minute walk of his office.

All of Racine’s property and enterprises, including his AutoLand car lot, are within a five-minute walk of his office.
