Spitzer Autoworld has been providing exemplary auto service for more than 100 years, having gotten its start selling and leasing Ford Model Ts. With today’s deal, soiled street wagons can ungrunge their outsides for the foreseeable future with a quintet of washes ($12 value each), during which their exteriors will be lovingly cleansed of accumulated grime and restored to factory-fresh spotlessness. Dirt-averse drivers can also opt for just one exterior clean but supplement it with the added perk of a standard oil change ($35 value) to re-lubricate crusty engines and inhibit corrosion, plus a 27-point auto inspection ($45 value) to ensure the car still has at least 27 parts.
The Polish Shop's techs cleanse cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans from the inside out with detailing services that adhere to a strict 25-point checklist. After transferring interiors' loose items and change into a protective bag, staffers spend three–four hours buffing light scratches, shampooing fabrics, degunking gas caps, and peeling away tar deposits. After freeing windows of built-up film and polishing mirrors to a reflective sheen, techs conclude with a final inspection, making sure that surfaces shine, insides sparkles, and bumper stickers feature correct punctuation.
Dan Kennedy’s secondhand car is far from shabby—before the Rolls-Royce convertible was his, it belonged to Dean Martin. To ensure his ride was meticulously taken care of, Kennedy started his own luxury garage and concierge service, Imperial Auto Castle. The climate-controlled garage, which car owners can view 24 hours a day via wireless surveillance cameras, houses vehicles when they aren’t in use. Technicians can detail and repair the parked cars or even sell them and replace them with a newer model, such as a hybrid—half car, half horse.
In addition to computerized alignment equipment and gallons of durable, semi-synthetic oil, Auto & Tire Service Specialists stock quality tires from 16 brands, including Goodyear, Michelin, and Yokohama. They back up all repairs and maintenance with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.
At Superior Auto Service, mechanics certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence carry out a variety of maintenance and repair services for all manner of horseless carriage. Servicing all automobile makes, models, and zodiac signs, the well-equipped facility's efficient service and quality parts commingle to create a stellar service center. An A/C system recharge gives cars a fighting chance to stand up against the bullying waves of summer heat ($89.95, plus freon). A tire rotation and 40-point inspection provide much needed attention to insecure cars ($19.95), and computer diagnostics and a half hour of troubleshooting reassure them that their owners don’t just love them for their bodies ($69.95).
Amid the uncertainty and complex nature of the aviation industry in the early 2000s, Denise and Mike decided to buck opposition and follow their dreams. The husband-and-wife team kept their dream relatively simple: move to northeast Ohio, secure season tickets for the Indians and Browns, and open up the world of flight to others. They soon took Mike's 35 years experience as an entrepreneur and Denise's time as a commercial pilot and turned it into American Winds Flight Academy. Today, their flight academy preps prospective pilots with FAA-approved ground courses and hands-on instruction in their fleet of Piper and Cessna airplanes and accommodating pterodactyls. The duo's 15-plus flight-training courses and fast-track program include everything from advanced flight-simulator instruction to commercial-pilot certification. Dedicated to assisting veterans on their path to become commercial pilots, American Winds Flight Academy is one of 12 FAA-licensed (Part 141) flight schools in the state of Ohio.
