Second to None was born out of its owners' desire to create an environmentally conscious car detailing company. Their service list is totally waterless, as their detailing treatments use specially formulated solutions and technology to maintain their green status. During the basic package, technicians vacuum interiors and hand wash exteriors. The exterior cleaning solution also has UVA and UVB protection to keep paint safe from the damaging effects of the sun, including if the sun suddenly erupts into a supernova, flinging your car out of the Milky Way.
After Congress instituted the Five-Second Rule in 1956, Americans had to develop a surefire way to keep their dinners off the ground. And thus, the kabob was born.

California Skewers offers a cool and casual dining experience where you build your own meal from the stick on up.

Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, have auto-repair roots that reach back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop—just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with nearly 20 locations, 300 employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
One Stop Auto Care is a complete auto-maintenance and repair facility that has been providing reliable service since 1989. During the oil change and 28-point inspection, the experienced technicians, most of which are ASE Certified or Master Technicians, drain away the gunk in the vehicle's veins, add new auto-plasma, swap out the exhausted filter with a fresh one, check the brakes, chassis, and alignment for dangerous defects and lodged gourds, and inspect the rear half of the vehicle for signs of junk. One Stop's standard oil change replenishes up to five quarts in all light vehicles, such as cars, trucks, vans, and combustion-driven chariots.
