Barry Meguiar represents the third generation of the company his grandfather founded in 1901. For Barry, working at Meguiar’s started when he was in grade school. Over the years Barry worked in various areas of the business but it was his vision to take their car care products to the consumer marketplace that got things revved up. In 1973 the first consumer product, Meguiar’s Liquid Cleaner Wax was launched. The rest is history and today the average retailer showcased 40 to 50 separate Meguiar’s products on its shelves. Meguiar’s “men in black” can be found at almost every major car show across the country, and around the world, each and every weekend. Then in the mid 90s Barry created Car Crazy Radio and Television to unite and mobilize car guys everywhere. Car Crazy TV is now viewed globally via the Internet and broadcast television.
