Chevy Suburbans slip through traffic with surprising grace, given their linebacker blockiness. Lincoln Town cars, on the other hand, move low to the ground like elegant shadows. The drivers from My Personalized Chauffeur command these and other vehicles, handling traffic and bears escaped from overturned circus wagons so that their passengers can relax. The fleet also includes a stretch limo, Mercedes S550, and Lincoln MKT for all manner of outings, including weddings, proms, airport rides, or nights on the town.

The Junction Diner was born from a child's imagination. Kate and Brad Wahl's son Connor had just turned 1 and received a wooden train set. He played for well over an hour, delighting his parents, who had been searching for something that could keep their son's attention. The next step seemed as natural as a locomotive's forward momentum: they opened a train-themed restaurant to cater to parents and their kids.

Inside The Junction Diner, a long counter wraps around the room's center like a winding train track. Diners sit on either side, and servers move up and down the middle, carrying plates of food with playful, train-inspired names. Customers at the counter itself can even get their meals delivered by an actual train. The aptly titled "Lil Conductor's Menu" delights kids with mini burgers and cheese quesadillas, while older diners peruse "Box Car Burgers" made with certified Black Angus beef and "Junction Wraps" including the buffalo chicken, topped in buffalo sauce, veggies, and a choice of ranch dressing or blue cheese. Near the dining area, a large table with interactive model trains keeps kids busy while their parents finish meals.

MT&T Transportation Service's professional drivers undergo thorough background checks and screenings before they escort air-bound travelers to and from Midway and O'Hare. After collecting departing passengers, who can schedule a pick-up right from home, the driver rolls off to the airport in a modern Lincoln Town Car as the globetrotters concentrate on confirming reservations and preparing their minds to fully understand the mystery of flight. Incoming skyfarers can schedule an airport pick-up and slump into the Lincoln's comfortable backseat to rest after an exciting trip or long battle of wits against an empty baggage carousel. Roundtrips escort travelers to and from the airport in question with reliable pick-up plans and 24-hour call services in case plans change.
