Since its founding by owner Bill Clark in 1962, Drive-In Autosound has expanded from an OEM radio-repair center to an automotive-enhancement hub with five locations. The audio department still doles out sonic toys such as stereos and speakers, as well as high-tech modifications including auxiliary ports, MP3-compatible sound systems, and plug-in a capella singers. The MECP-certified installers also equip cars with remote starters and GPS systems from more than 50 brands—including Kenwood and Pioneer—and factory-trained technicians augment rides with window tints and stylish wheels.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
The staff at Harry's HP Tire & Automotive work to ensure that their clients are never stuck waiting for a tow truck on the side of the road.
