AAMCO's deft technicians facilitate peak mileage and performance with 30-minute oil transfusions. During the oil-change service, mechanics confiscate dirty oils and caricatures of tow trucks from the car's pockets, replace them with up to 5 quarts of clean oil, and install a filter. They loosen up grease fittings with healthy doses of lubricant, then perform an inspection to check the vehicle's vitals. During the 36-point inspection, staffers pop the hood to view the battery and charging system, duck beneath the car to scrutinize brakes and drive axles, and take a tour of lights, instruments, and controls to determine whether the car has decided to forsake its charge and power itself via the screams of its passengers.
While some children inherit their dad's old set of wheels, the McAllister brothers got a much better deal. They inherited what they refer to as the "car gene", soaking up their father's love of all-things automobile and turning it into a thriving family business––three businesses, as a matter of fact. Besides McAllisters Auto Center, the brothers also oversee McAllisters Collision Center and McAllisters Auto Mart, where they blend a childhood full of mechanical apprenticeship with years of industry experience.
At the auto center, the McAllisters zero their car connoisseurship in on vehicles that require quick maintenance work or in-depth repairs. Oil changes, brake repairs, and engine services rekindle cars' performance, and new tires from brands such as Goodyear and Firestone restore smoothness to rides that have lost traction, balance, or the ability to stop on a dime without messing up Roosevelt's hair.
Since 1962, the motor mavens at Big O Tires have been treating tin lizzies to a slew of services, including their specialty 30-minute express oil changes. The tireless techs speedily slurp out old oil with anteater-esque precision, replacing worn out filters, and rewarding loyal dip sticks with up to 5 quarts of new crude. Following a chassis lubrication, wheel wranglers remove each tire, before moving them and their entire DVD collection to a new home in an adjacent wheel well, helping to guarantee even wear and tear. After a thorough fluid check and preventative maintenance analysis, revamped rides are happily reunited with the owners to depart together into the sunset. Upgrades are available for diesel oil (price based on vehicle and location), high-mileage oil ($10–$15 extra), and synthetic oil ($20–$30 extra).
The certified carriage technicians at Roppel’s tend to foreign and domestic motors with precise mechanical services. Reviving dog-tired automobiles for more than 60 years, Roppel’s physicians refresh oil, tune brakes, and read motivational poems to underperforming transmissions. Owners can treat engines to a viscous elixir with the standard oil change and filter ($29.95) or give their four-wheeled friends the full vehicular pat-down with a complete inspection ($19.95).
Eight bags. Two platforms. Two six-inch holes. One distinctly American game. The origins of cornhole are shrouded in mystery. Some say it derives from a German game, while others claim it is a descendent of a similar sport played by Native Americans. But one thing is certain—it's serious business. That's why the American Cornhole Organization was formed in 2005. By setting the rules, establishing annual tournaments and competitions, and firmly banning the practice of using trained birds to dunk bags, these referees have codified the sport and elevate it to a professional level.
