HA - love the use of their tag line!

I've had great experience with their products as well for many years. I've got to admit though, I feel like the Chemical Guys JetSeal and 5050 wax is at just a whole different level, and still not just crazy money. I really, really wish I'd tried them when I still had my black Cobra. I've tried a few more of their products as well, with good results.

You 'can get some things at local stores but for the most part you'll have to look at ordering. The products listed above by the professional detailers are awesome products that are tough to find locally.
For instance, you can get a decent shampoo like Duragloss at CarQuest stores...or Walmart, which carries some Meguiars products. But I don't think you can get Chemical guys stuff, (great shampoos, claybars, debuggers, waxes (Petes 53), sealants (JetSeal)). More importantly, its hard to find good tools and equipment (microfiber cloths, polishing pads, polishers, mitts etc.)at stores.
Its actually easier to order the stuff and have it at your door in 3-4 days. Incidently, a lot of places will have sales for Memorial Day coming up so look for that. Some of the places I buy from are:

http://www.detailedimage.com/
http://classic-motoring.stores.yahoo.net/
http://www.detailersdomain.com/
http://www.pinnaclewax.com/
http://www.autogeek.net/
http://www.zainostore.com/

Good luck.

Thanks, i really appreciate it, i have no problem ordering online, as long as it's the best quality. I am a bit new to the world of, pampering a car like it' a diamond worth a million dollars. So.. what are some of the basic tools i need to start of with? As far as the exterior goes, to clean and maintain?

You're going to find it very, very difficult to find really good products at any store in Birmingham, let alone the rest of the state (depending on where you are). Online will be your best bet!

If we lived in CA it'd be easier to just pick this stuff up......
