Soap, wax, and vacuums fly into action at Fred’s Car Wash, tackling the layers of grime and salt that cling to cars and trucks. Fred’s has been fighting the battle against dirt for more than three decades, watching as the jalopies of yore gave way to the hovercrafts of today, which the car wash’s experts pamper with four levels of express or full washes. This range of services lets clients decide whether their autos need a basic showering and hand drying, or if they could benefit from coats of foam protectant and Rain-X products. The car wash’s technicians also perform detail services, rejuvenating vehicular interiors with leather cleaner and vacuums or shining hulls with paste wax until hoods reflect the clouds and pterodactyls soaring above them.

Fairfield Hyundai's speedy Hyundai-certified technicians sate thirsty engines and cosset car exteriors in a one-hour blitz of auto services. During the oil change, up to 5 quarts of conventional oil coat inner metals in friction-defying lubricant, and a new filter protects the engine from dirt flung into its grille by bullying tricycles. Techs redistribute tread wear by shuffling tire positions, then embark on a multipoint performance inspection, which leads them beneath the hood, under the car, and into reservoirs to replenish low levels of fluids. They'll also measure the front and rear brake linings, assess tires' tread depths, check the cooling and heating system, and play with lights, signals, and horns to determine cars' readiness to stand in for the brass section of a flashy disco band. A cleansing wash concludes the service, leaving each auto with a glowing complexion as well as invigorated innards.

Unlike swimming, nobody learns to fly by being thrown in the deep end. Instead, it takes gradual instruction to teach students the controls and feel of an aircraft guided by their hands. Luckily, instructors Antonio Ferrara and Zachary Barrett specialize in that sort of slow-burning scholarship. Both men make their living with their heads in the clouds. Ferrara flies for a commercial airline, ferrying passengers across vast distances in enormous jets. Barrett also possesses his commercial pilot's license, along with an FAA Flight Instructor certification.

At Affordable Aircraft & Flight Instruction, LLC, the duo helps fledgling flyers find their sky legs with discovery flights and group ground school. They also teach longer courses, guiding students toward certifications as private-, multiengine-, and commercial-rated pilots.
