The experts at Oil Can Henry's wear bow ties and newsboy hats, hinting at pleasant anachronism. Completing the effect of having stepped back in time, however, drivers remain in their cars, flipping open free newspapers as though they were in a mid-century service station. As Henry's knowledgeable technicians whip through oil changes, reviving autos with a lube job, fluid top-off, visual inspection, and other services, patrons look on via a video monitor. The close-up vantage point and tips from the workers help guests learn new things about their autos and not to be too grossed out to touch the headlights anymore.

A range of Castrol motor oils, each designed to meet unique driving conditions and vehicular needs, waits on shelves, and fuel additives give an additional boost. Within the sheltered bays, the crew provides further maintenance services such as cooling-system flushes and constructive criticism of homemade hood ornaments.

Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop?just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.

At Big Red Express Lube, drivers don't have to wait long for their rides. The technicians get cars in and out of the service bay quickly, replacing old goopy oil with new fresh batches with full service oil changes and 21-point inspections including fluid top-offs and visual inspections, which keeps the auto's inner workings moving smoothly. The team of knowledgeable technicians also inspects vehicles during the oil change for any problematic symptoms and recommends solutions that include more than duct tape and WD-40. A range of Chevron motor oils are available, and Big Red's crew provides further maintenance services including cooling-system flushes.
