How A Premium Concours Paste Wax Came To Be Pete’s

We’re not sure how many Professional Detailers and Southern Californians know about Pete’s Wax Works in Norco, California, but anyone who is anyone in detailing surely knew the owner, Pete Martinez. Those of us fortunate enough to meet him or talk to him on the phone can agree that words cannot express just how incredible a person Pete was. Pete opened his shop in the Inland Empire, brought Chemical Guys in, and catered to every car enthusiast, detailer, friend, and anyone who wanted to experience detailing at its finest. Pete combined his 20 years of automobile paint blending, design, and finishing experience with his love for cars and motorcycles into a venue where he could share and teach others all about the art of detailing. Over the years, Pete’s Wax Works mentored hundreds of detailers, and educated enthusiastic automobile lovers, collectors, and friends to better understand paint care, the detailing industry, and proper use of detailing products and techniques.

Pete was more than the ultimate source for detailing knowledge: he was a true friend, a man with a heart of gold, and an amazing character who brightened every day (as well as every glossy paint finish!) Whether he was looking at a car or bike, Pete channeled over 20 years of experience in paint blending and finishing to make everyone’s smile as bright as their vehicle’s shine. And by educating his customers, Pete shared his immense detailing knowledge and moved the enthusiasts detailing sector up to the next level. Pete exemplified everything good that one looks for in a teacher and friend. His passion for detailing excellence and love for the automobile made him a part of the Chemical Guys family.

Pete passed away at the age of 53 on February 13, 2007, but he lives on forever in the hearts of everyone who knew him, learned from him, and laughed along with him. And although Pete’s Wax Works closed its doors, Pete’s family, friends, and knowledgeable enthusiasts keep Pete’s dream alive and our shared passion for expression and perfection burning bright within our souls.

We know that Pete enjoyed the brilliant glow and shine of his motorcycle on the weekly ride after leaving Wax Works with the wife. We only wish that he could have been dazzled by the wet liquid shimmer of our tribute, Pete’s ’53, for himself.

To everyone who knew Pete too, enjoy Pete’s ’53 Black Pearl and remember the good times we all shared. For those of you who never met Pete, make your own memories and share your love, dedication, and passion for the auto with your own friends and family.
