Car Crazy TV host and the face behind of the Meguiar’s detailing products company Barry Meguiar is reportedly in serious condition after being admitted to hospital in Monterey, CA. According to a report by AutoWeek, Meguiar is in the intensive care unit of the Monterey Community Hospital.

Few folks are better known and few faces more recognizable in the auto industry than Meguiar’s. Aged 67, Meguiar took his family run business of care care products and transformed it into a multi-million dollar company, eventually selling it to 3M in 2008. Meguiar continued to work with the new owners, promoting his family’s line of detailing products while spreading the gospel of automotive fanaticism through his Car Crazy TV show.

Meguiar was in Monterey over the weekend taking part in the annual Pebble Beach festivities.

    Hey guys,

    You need to read what you post. How can Barry Meguiar be the founder of Meguiars when as you state he took the family business and built it up. Also Meguiars claims over 100 years in business.
