Shine On Car Wash cleanses muddled metal exteriors with modern yet gentle technology and detailing services for all types of vehicles. Autos enter the sudsy enclave and get caressed by a 100% brushless, soft-cloth tunnel, where biodegradable shampoos from Earth Ready wash away dirt, grime, and tattoos displaying allegiance to former owners. Before exiting, car exteriors are cleaned of soap and dry off while avoiding the potential paint-damaging effects of high-pressure jets. Shine On Car Wash caters to car-cleaning appetites large and small, with five levels of full-service washes and available à la carte offerings such as power washing for plastic mats or interior Armor All treatments. Full-service washes feature Rain-X protection, triple-foam polish wax, and Armor All tire shine to help roadsters look their most lavish.
Lots of mandatory steps stand between a person and a driver's license, from time in the classroom to time on the road. JayJay Driving School guides drivers-in-training through every step of the process. The school's five-hour classroom course and 45-minute driving lessons cover everything from safe driving to parallel parking. Once aspiring licensees are ready, staff members can set them up with a road test at the DMV and even supply a rental car to use during the test. JayJay's other services include six-hour courses on defensive driving techniques that are less suspicious than covering a car in barbed wire.
Carpingo's car-sharing system takes the ownership out of “car ownership,” leaving drivers with to explore the wide-open road without the usual hassles. After locating a vehicle near their home or office, members reserve it for the length of time they need, from as little as one hour for a grocery run to an entire day for a grocery run to Virginia. Once it’s time to roll, a simple swipe of their membership card grants them access to the driver's seat and free reign of their temporary automobile. When finished, they return the vehicle to its reserved Carpingo spot, where it reminisces about its auto-factory days and waits for another member in need of transportation. While members enjoy the driving benefits of car ownership, Carpingo staff members handle the maintenance side, taking cars for any needed oil changes and garage visits.
