Techna Glass technicians deftly mend and replace damaged windshields with only auto-glass materials that meet or exceed the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. The team fills in nicks and cracks with rock chip repair, which restores auto-glass's structural integrity, or swaps out entire panes with windshield replacements built in Department of Transportation–approved manufacturing plants. Each windshield installed by Techna Glass comes with a lifetime warranty against defects and a yearlong guarantee against breakage caused by highway debris or a game of real-life pinball.
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.
Dotted with 12 stations, the New Mexico Rail Runner Express’s 100 miles of track stretches between Belen and Santa Fe.

On Saturdays, artists from the University of New Mexico Theater Department spice up 506 and 509 train rides with classic Shakespeare performances that feature the ghost of Hamlet’s father wearing a conductor’s cap.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states.

Unlike library books, cars protest by not working when you don’t adhere to their due dates. To keep your vehicle in top shape, you should get its oil changed every 3,000 miles or six months, or after every run-in with a dark, mysterious stranger whose voice is dulcet gold. While most wouldn't take an out-of-shape Yorkie to an agility trial, many drivers push their sputtering mobility machines through the desert without a second thought. Oil changes are an important part of routine car maintenance and can help you avoid interstate breakdowns and awkward silences in the cab of the tow truck. Nab this mobile Groupon to take advantage of the requisite service at a discounted rate and to stop postponing the inevitable.
From their nest at Albuquerque International Airport, Del Sol Aviation's FAA-certified flight instructors help pupils earn the papers to pilot an aircraft on their own. Careers in aviation typically start with a Discovery Flight, an introduction to the pastime that involves the student in every aspect of a typical flight?from preflight briefing to calming the flight-deck cockatoo. If students should choose to pursue a Private Pilot Certificate, they have access to a fleet of Certified Light aircraft by manufacturers such as Piper, Cessna, and Grumman American, as well as the invaluable advice and guidance of their trusted instructors. The Discovery flight time experience can be officially logged to count toward your training to achieve a Private Pilot Certificate.
