Since opening its first location in 1977, Super Car Wash has grown into a thriving car-cleaning kingdom with nine locations in the metro area.

Since 1968, the auto-body technicians at Beauty-Gard have helped vehicle owners fight the corrosive influences of time. The team offers two primary services to help preserve the youthful good looks of a car, truck, or SUV: its rust-and-corrosion protection and paint preservative. The protection involves the application of a special polymer at key points on the interior and exterior of the car to either prevent or staunch the spread of rust. The preservative locks in a car's just-waxed appearance with a Teflon coat.

From sputtering engines to faulty brakes to climate-control systems with a bad source of weather updates, the versatile techs restore vehicles to working states and send them forth with steady tires and retooled performance.
