The experienced auto physicians at McClain's Car Doctor attend to domestic and imported autos with a wide variety of services to keep them road-ready and purring happily. Treating your street schooner to a 15-minute standard oil change allows it to slurp down up to five quarts of Napa Havoline oil, leaving it too full to graze on parking meters or tandem bicycles . McClain's diligent detectives examine each vehicle, popping the hoods and checking fluids, belts, and hoses for leaks. Highway stallions are hoisted into the air like graceful 2-ton ballerinas, allowing brakes and drivelines to undergo thorough inspections for suspicious activity. Vehicles that do not currently burn oil earn a 3,000-mile warranty and license to roam the open road.
Owner Shawn Martinez’s love affair with cars started with a simple brake service on his dad’s Cadillac. After jacking up the car and removing the wheels, Shawn’s father turned over the vehicle to his son, who proceeded to take things apart and put them back together at a leisurely pace. As he was teaching himself, Shawn forgot to bleed the brakes (a lesson his father quickly corrected) and since then has been tinkering with roadsters of all makes, models, colors, and complexities. Now an ASE-certified technician with 15 years of professional experience, he uses only Carquest- and NAPA-certified parts, and offers support to customers on fixed or limited incomes. Available services include preventative maintenance, tire rotations, and work on the steering, brakes, and suspension—a job normally performed by high-school principals when a student drives his car down the hallway instead of walking to third period like the rest of us.
As a veteran, NUEVO Auto Detailing’s owner knows the importance of machines. That’s why the professionally trained staff works to keep cars running smoothly and looking shipshape by removing dirt with products from Meguirs, Mothers, and Auto Magic. The technicians bustle around vehicles, cleaning inside windows, conditioning leather, and shampooing seats. Road tar, pet hair, and stains vanish under the care of detailers, who also draw from a supply of clay bars, tire dressing, and extra honor students in case bumper stickers turn out not to be true.
Touch of Class welcomes vehicles of all shapes and sizes into its garage for both professional detailing and do-it-yourself fun. Meticulous crews gently hand-wash and wax exteriors, making sure to thoroughly clean rims and tires and scrub off stubborn tar and lovestruck bugs. Once paint gleams, the team sucks up debris from the entire interior and eliminates stains from seats with shampoo treatments. Touch of Class also rents out their space at an hourly rate, allowing drivers to borrow supplies and clean their cars all by themselves.
