Equipped with foam featherweight brushes, Major Car Wash's automated tunnels swallow sullied vehicles and gently spit out shimmering chariots. Drivers at the Rahway or Princeton facilities can roll their rides through #2 washes, which renovate peaked paint jobs with sudsy sprays, underbody treatments, Armor All polish, and clear-coat conditioner. A precise wheel cleaning and rim blaster frees circular hooves of road-sourced grime, giving tires the confidence to face snarled commutes or their fears of becoming a spare. The South Brunswick location's Gold protection wash supplements car cleansings with an Armor All–enhanced dual polish and a Rain-X protection package engineered to repel precipitation including rain, snow, and eagles' tears.
Open seven days a week, Victory Auto Spa houses a team of technicians ready to help clients with all their automotive needs with washing and detailing services, auto sales, and repair services. Detailers clean cars from roof to road with high-quality products such as Armor All tire treatments, Blue Coral polish, and Simoniz car wax. Regular repairs and maintenance tune-ups keep cars running as long as Fred Flintstone on a cross-Pangean road trip, restoring rides with adjustments such as basic and synthetic oil changes, engine tune-ups, brake repair, and radiator flushing.
The hard-working car washers at Staten Island Auto Bath restore glowing complexions to autos while protecting tires and paint from damage. Using high-pressure machines, they evict grime from jalopies and add protective coats of wax, tire-shielding treatments, and a thick pair of long underwear to restore showroom shines. Air compressors dry all visiting vehicles, which roll in and out from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday–Saturday, closing at 4:30 p.m. on Sundays.
The certified technicians at Bay Street Auto Center's five locations keep cars road ready and street legal with New York state inspections and oil changes. Techs begin inspections by examining the battery and starting charging system, taking pains to confirm that the battery has an active charge and hasn't been using all its energy taunting solar panels. Techs then aim their expertise at tires, scrutinize the brakes to confirm safe stopping, check the suspension, and conclude the examination by casting trained eyes and hands at belts and hoses. Oil changes drain dirty and damaged oils before replacing them with up to 5 quarts of conventional motor oil (synthetic available for an additional charge) and a new filter to guard the engine from contaminants and invitations to the transmission’s next fondue night.
Core Helicopters launches students skyward during hands-on helicopter lessons with certified, experienced staff on high-performance R22 helicopters with heated or open cockpits at Linden Airport, only 14 miles from New York City. Fledgling flyers begin their sojourns on the ground, with 30 minutes of in-depth training in flight controls and safety. Next, the pilot and pupil air-kiss the tarmac adieu before they climb into the cockpit, where strapped-in students get hands-on chopper experience for 15 airborne minutes. Soaring past the atmosphere's cloud-shaped sheep, pupils take over the flight controls themselves, or sit back as the instructor pilot takes the helm. Each trainee leaves the lesson holding an FAA-authorized, bird-notarized certificate for proof of their flight training. The flight time also counts toward a future pilot's license, should the student choose to pursue it.
Additional options including extended flight times, flight instructors demonstrating high-performing, advanced maneuvers, and flight-of-two flights where two helicopters will fly side-by-side together, which allow air-to-air photos with friends, are available for an additional fee.
