Thirty years ago, Sun Control had just two part-time window-tint installers. Today, they're 15 strong?each certified to install window films not just in cars, but also in homes and commercial locations. They also benefit interiors by keeping them cool on hot summer days and filtering out damaging UV rays that can fade upholstery. For homes, tinting reduces heating and cooling costs and decreases glare while still allowing in natural light. To ensure proper fit and a seamless look, the 3M certified installers cut films and bless them with a lifetime warranty.
Ride Man Ride's chauffeurs understand that sliding into the backseat of a Jaguar XJ Super V8 for a ride to a business meeting or a night on the town ups the ante on sophistication. That's why they don three-piece suits that echo the luxury car's sleek façade as they slip behind the wheel, prepared to ferry clients around town in the amenity-stacked vehicle. Passengers can decompress in the car’s heated seats and recline to their back's content, or leverage the privacy screen to watch monster-truck-rally marathons on the backseat DVD player without offending the driver. For the digital passenger, laptop tables securely support personal computers to facilitate connection to the car's WiFi or broadcast their own soundtrack through the cabin. A bottle of Fiji water and dual-zone climate control helps passengers to reach the perfect levels of comfort or acclimate their body temperatures to perfectly match those of high kings.
In 1938, Charles “Red” Schoonover borrowed $50 and used it to found Schoonover Bodyworks & Glass, a family business that has passed through generations of Schoonovers over the past seven decades. Nowadays, the center honors its founder’s commitment to quality repairs with guarantees against workmanship faults, valid as long as clients own their cars. The guarantee covers maintenance procedures—such as oil changes and system flushes—as well as full-scale repairs. Technicians can match Sikkens paint to existing bodywork, concealing scrapes without hiding the entire car behind a weird-shaped tree, or revamp cratered exteriors with paintless dent removal. Glass repairs in the onsite shop include chip fixes and full replacement of windshields, sunroofs, and windows.
Whether seating pairs or quartets, the whimsical vehicles from Papa Wheelie's Surrey Rental let riders bask in the open air as they trundle along serene paths. Colorful canopies shade pedaling sightseers as they explore downtown Stillwater. Riders may choose to follow the banks of the St. Croix River, taking in the relaxing, melodious sounds of lapping water or glimpsing the dark mirror universe of Wisconsin on its opposite shore.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
When driving into the garage at King's Automotive LLC, you never know who you'll be parking next to. On any given day, you might be in the presence of a 1948 Chevrolet pickup, its chrome grillwork shining as brightly as it did when art deco was still in vogue. Already on the pneumatic lift could be a 1932 Chevy Coupe, the nostalgic roadster's profile a striking contrast to today's vehicles. With 25 years of experience and Automotive Service Excellence Master certification, the resident mechanic is well equipped to maintain automobiles both vintage and modern. And, in the case of classic cars, he may even be able to outfit them with such modern luxuries as electrical systems and e-cigarette lighters.
