So established is Circle K that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.
After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including Ball Park hot dogs. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with Premium Coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
Though virtually anything can fit in a car trunk—golf clubs, emergency flares, a bodybag filled with old clothes for donation—little can rival the echoing bass of an aftermarket stereo system. At Innovative Audio and Styling, technicians trick out trunks with high-quality speakers, carefully embedding them in the side wells to ensure that they leave enough cargo space without sacrificing a clear stereo sound. The same stylish yet practical mindset goes into the installation of every service, from remote-start systems and Bluetooth integration to headlight restoration and exterior styling.
National Detail Center's car-loving technicians scour automobiles inside and out during each 20- to 30-minute full-service car wash. Guided by dirt-seeking eyes, vacuums voraciously inhale interior car debris, dirt, and crumbs clinging to upholstery and crevasses, and dust-busting towels cartwheel and slide over dusty dashboards, grimy door panels, and neglected consoles. Outside the cabin, nimble hands scrub-down wheels and tires, sponging away mire from auto bodies to reveal gleaming windows, shining paint jobs, and hubcaps and rims clean enough to eat pavement off of. In a full-service wash and wax, a machine seals the fresh façade in an even, protective coat of wax that only melts off if drivers dare to burn rubber from both ends.
The technicians at A Above and Beyond Auto Glass—a fully licensed, bonded, and insured business—have been patching up vehicles' windows for more than 12 years. Their services cover both repairs and renovations, from windshield replacements to tinting and custom-cut mirrors. For all of their four-wheeled patients, they utilize glass from original equipment manufacturers, which ensures that new windows fit properly and get along with the car right from the start. They also vacuum glass shards out of cars after accidents, regardless of whether customers visit their shop or summon their mobile unit.
With over a decade of auto-detailing experience under his belt, Sammy Kautz started Extreme Mobile Detail's engine in 2011. Today, his fleet of trucks arrives wherever the client desires, be it at home, work, or mystical cornfield baseball diamond, to bring vehicles of any size to a near-factory-issue gleam. The team hand washes cars, vacuums interiors, and polishes chrome and windows to a glittering shine using their own truck-mounted water and power sources; a million-dollar liability insurance policy relieves the worries of scratch-phobic vehicles.
