Antenna and car wash

Will a car wash bend/break the stock radio antenna or should I only do touchless and replace it with a shorter one?

I replaced mine with one from AntennaX. Its a short off road one. Quick shipping and a great product. Not sure about the car wash as I always hand wash mine.

I always hand was my cars, and wax them. There are always small areas that be missed at a car wash.

Thanks all. In hind sight, that was a pretty silly question. I do like the attitude of "if it breaks, so what, replace it."

What about a Firestik CB antenna that's about 10" above the roof line? No spring mount?
