There are about 23 Octopus Car Wash locations in six states: Arizona (4), Colorado (3), Illinois (2), Florida (2), New Mexico (8), and Wisconsin (4). The spinning octopus mascot is named "Ozzie". In 2015, the Madison locations were sold to the Mister Car Wash chain based in Tucson, AZ. The same company bought the Albuquerque locations in 2014. The Madison octopus statues have been removed. I don't know if the Milwaukee location was also part of the deal or how the sale will impact the any of the other locations and statues.
The University Ave. sign shown in the top row above had flags on the poles when the first photo as taken in 2006. The other photos of that location are from 2011. The front arm of the Park St. octopus curled back towards its body unlike the others which extend and hold a vacuum.
In 2015, it was announced that the E. Washington Ave. location's statue would be relocated somewhere else in town.
