The California coast lends a sparkling backdrop to the Dana Point Harbor Boat Show where, for the 12th year running, boat enthusiasts and marine-related exhibitors converge to discuss and celebrate the latest watery wares. Snaking along the harbor's docks, show-goers wade through a trove of exhibitor booths that includes the Ocean Institute and California and Pacific Northwest Yachts. Power and sail vessels—by such makers as Albemarle, East Bay, and Ocean—model varying modes of aquatic transport, and gadget enthusiasts get first glimpse at in-water features such as electronics, fishing gear, and apparel that emboldens seafarers to take on the angry seas or finally stand up to the office drinking fountain and its aggressively unpredictable spray.
Ortega Car Wash & Lube’s friendly automotive technicians keep cars clean from the inside out with routine oil changes and meticulous hand washes. Offering four car-wash packages, they can refresh your vehicle with a simple wash and dry or a more intensive service that includes vacuuming, tire dressing, and a clear-coat protector. When they aren’t refreshing interiors with leather-seat treatments and carpet shampooing, technicians pop open the hood to soothe coughing engines with fresh helpings of brake fluid and cold medicine. A gift shop stocks air fresheners and other accessories designed to keep cars purring contentedly for miles down the road.
C.B. Weseloh was tinkering on cars at his combined service station, garage, and towing service way back in the 1920s. Today, the Weseloh Auto Group continues his legacy, with nine family members working full time at various stores throughout the state. Overseeing Chevy, Kia, Nissan, Honda, and Yamaha dealerships, the Weselohs connect drivers with a host of quality new or preowned vehicles. Weseloh Nissan offers an array of express services, each of which will be completed in 30 minutes or less and includes a multipoint inspection. John Arnold heads up the service team, and Tony Gervacio and the fellas in the parts department track down Nissan brake pads for your GT-R or designer paddles for your Xterra's pet kayak.
