The auto-enthused professionals at Highline Imports welcome both domestic and foreign motors into their service shop. Trained mechanics will refill your vehicle's cache of go-juice with either regular oil or its simulated twin, greasing the engine of your motorized, windowed scooter and reducing friction between bickering crank shafts and pistons arguing about the merits of AM versus FM radio.
Noel Z. Wiseman—better known as Zeb—has always had a passion for squeaky-clean cars. So, in 1985, the North Carolina state trooper decided to transform a hobby into a business and opened up his own detailing shop. More than two decades and three name changes later, Zeb’s Attention To Detail continues to clean cars of all sizes, inside and out. Zeb travels directly to homes and offices to hand wash and wax exteriors and vacuum and shampoo interiors. He expertly clears water spots and calls upon pressure washers to blast away stubborn grime. Aside from sprucing up vehicles, Zeb and his crew also wash driveways, siding, and mailmen.

City Automotive's ASE-certified technicians walk cars through a painless state-sanctified procedural to validate safe operations and regulatory emissions. During the 30-minute inspection, mechanics adjust headlights and turn signals, scrutinize brakes for proper stopping power, and squirt water at windshields to check the reflexes of wipers. Techs then gauge tires to approve the supportive condition of pavement pounders, verify proper handling on the steering mechanism, and reflect upon the importance of visibility in the rear view mirrors. Car horns brag of their bravado when pushed, proving their mettle against green-light dozers, and any cars equipped with post-factory tinted windows will be assessed based on a visibility light requirement. The mechanics then move on to the emissions inspection, where they test exhaust emission controls and eavesdrop on the muffler before introducing the car to a computer diagnostics system, which relates back to the mechanics the state of readiness monitors and the car's paralyzing fear of bicycles.
K&F Custom Car Detailing–techs train hoses on cars and buildings, unleashing rivulets of pressurized water to liberate exteriors from smudges and grime. Autos emerge from the detail shop freed from the effects of bug splatters and soda spills alike, thanks to staffers' meticulous exterior hand-washing and interior carpet and leather cleansing services. K&F also travels to homes and offices to pressure wash their walls, whether it's the whole façade or focused areas such as roofs, sidewalks, and the open mouths of parched lawn gnomes.
The mobile mechanics of John O'Brian Auto Care travel to customers' locations to lather crusty cars and perform oil changes with synthetic-blend oil. During the 30-minute gold-service wash, technicians scrub the frame with soapy water, dry it with a towel, and shield their eyes from the blinding glow. Next, they scrub the tires into brimming black and silver, awaken fogged-up windows, and nosedive inside with a vacuum aimed at every crevice and seat cushion. Dashboards and center consoles spring to life resuscitated by sponges, and spot checks on the carpet and seats target recently spilled drinks, grease, or party-size cans of beans.
