With its fleet of luxury buses and limousines, Columbia Party Bus makes sure that the journey is as fun as the destination. Up to 12 passengers can comfortably lounge in a Lincoln super-stretch limo, equipped with a stellar sound system and wet bar. Leather wraparound seating hosts up to 18 in the VIP Entertainer limo, where visitors can craft drinks at three bars, soundtrack the festivities with tunes from CDs and iPods, or watch a DVD on the giant HDTV screen. The Dictator, a 24- to 40-person party bus, evokes a nightclub atmosphere with front and rear bars, multiple TVs, two laser-light systems, a separate VIP section, and a bouncer strapped to the roof. As Columbia Party Bus's pro drivers safely navigate clients through Columbia and its outlying areas, a complimentary concierge service eases logistical hassles by procuring dinner reservations, live DJs, and event tickets.

MY Automotive takes its name from owners Mike Noel and Yuri Rozenblat, who started the business in 2006 with the goal of providing reasonable, timely service that doesn't come with pricey estimates. Both owners are ASE certified and specialize in maintaining and repairing European and luxury cars and trucks. But they can use their computerized diagnostic equipment to pinpoint problems on any vehicle, whether it's ailing from heating and air-conditioning problems or is in desperate need of a total engine overhaul. The duo also speaks English, Russian, and Ukrainian, allowing them to communicate their recommendations to a wider customer base and to program GPS devices to sing a variety of national anthems.

John Caraway is a perfectionist. He's also a certified auto-body technician. At Dent Wrx, located inside of Phillipe's Auto Body, John is able to combine these two traits by restoring dented surfaces back to an overall smooth finish on vehicle exteriors. Caraway and his team of technicians use specially designed tools to massage away dents caused by hail or overzealous rice throwers who got kicked out of the wedding they were attending. Paintless dent repair is also available for customers. Services restore surfaces without the use of putty or additional paint, and they won't damage the finish of existing paint. As an added bonus, Dent Wrx sometimes provides loaner cars so that patrons don't have to ride the family dog to work.

At Sound Performance, technicians upgrade cars with name-brand mobile electronics and alarm systems. They retool automotive acoustics with stereos, subwoofers, and speakers from brands such as Kenwood and Pioneer, and integrate smartphone ports into stereos so that motorists can tap into their music library while they drive. To protect the high-tech gadgets from the heat or the jealous eyes of strangers, technicians also install scratch-resistant LLumar window tints, which are cut with precision using a special computer system. Sound Performance prepares drivers for winter with remote starters, which enable drivers to warm up the car at the touch of a button without leaving the comfort of their home or curbside tanning bed.

The eight workstations at The Tuning Spot hum with the staccato clicks of socket wrenches and the soprano whine of air tools. Industrious figures crane their necks beneath a scissor lift and slip under rides in flat bays. The industrious workers aren’t licensed mechanics, though— they are the cars’ owners, learning to baby their own rides in the 7,000-square-foot DIY garage.

Burgeoning technicians gather together in the bustling shop, discussing issues with timing belts and fuzzy dice that only ever come up snake eyes. A team of experienced mechanics stands by, ready to jump in and assist. ALLDATA, an online database of repair tips and specs, also aids students as they learn to care for rides without expensive trips to mechanics.
