Since its birth as a single-bay tire shop in 1929, Jack Williams Tire & Auto Service Centers has vastly expanded its array of vehicle services and spawned more than 20 additional shops throughout the state. During each of the three included oil changes, a team of knowledgeable car whisperers convinces motors' mouths to open wide as they swap soiled oil for up to five quarts of fresh, standard engine juice and install a new filter. Steel steeds with a flat tire can lurch into the shop and ask one of Jack Williams' experts to repair it; if the puncture wound is fixable, drivers can enjoy lifetime repairs and rebalancing on that one tire. To top it all off, rewards-booklet-toting folk can enjoy a bevy of additional savings including a 50% discount on a wheel alignment and a state safety inspection, as well as free shuttle service and complimentary midservice performances of "Greased Lightning."

At Plow Farms, families stroll through a sea of 6-foot–8-foot douglas firs in search of the perfect Christmas tree. Board a sleigh-bell-bedecked hayride that bobs and weaves along paths like a scarecrow playing basketball before reaching a field of potential present shelters. Customers may use a proffered saw to separate tree from earth, or cry "timber" from a safe distance by giving the job to onsite workers. Upon returning to Plow Farms' hub, speedy slicers can refuel with a complimentary bag of popcorn and purchase hot chocolate before perusing trinkets such as holiday-themed penguin statues ($17) and sterling-silver earrings ($22) in the farm's old-barn-bound gift shop. Santa is available for pictures on the weekends, providing an open-air venue for claustrophobic wish lists.
Sam's Express Car Wash smothers the interiors and exteriors of autos with dirt-purging soaps, hand waxes, and fabric-cleaning treatments. In the ultimate wash, exterior frames shed their grimy highway souvenirs, undercarriages are bereft of clingy debris, and wheels regain the luster of General Patton's collection of Zippo lighters. Applications of triple-foam polish and clear-coat conditioning wax secure the veneer and restore a showroom shine. The express detail blankets exteriors in Express spray hand wax, which acts as a bouncer that stands guard against UV damage, dirt, and road salt. Detailers then shampoo the rug and alchemize filthy consoles and dashes into sparkling surfaces.
