Rich’s Smog & Repair keep cars on the road with a menu of maintenance, bodywork, and inspection services. Rich’s technicians specialize in smog testing and repair, checking for and maintaining eco-friendly emissions levels, and also primp rides by detailing cabins, removing dents, and repainting surfaces marred by the elements or improperly wielded nail clippers. Inside the auto shop, the staff mends all makes and models, including Mazdas and BMWs, using quality and high-performance parts from brands such as AC Delco, NAPA, and Yokohama.
For more than 30 years, Precision has helped vehicles of all sorts run smoothly with an array of maintenance and auto-repair services. Professionally trained mechanics whet engine appetites with a premium oil change with up to 5 quarts of oil, and then rotate tires to allow for an even distribution of wear and tear while on the road. The automotive pampering lasts about an hour, during which mechanics dispose of all waste and crumbs from half-eaten parking tickets stuck in the engine. Technicians conclude the ride renovation with a brake inspection to ensure effective stopping post-drive-away. After motor coaches have returned to their youthful, showroom condition, drivers can register for online service reminders, never again relying on their car's unreliable telepathy abilities.
Since 1966, Jon Nichols has divided his time between cruising atop a motorcycle and lying beneath it with a wrench and a perfectionist's determination. Spurred by his discontent with a bike's stock performance, he used his industrial acumen, honed by years as the owner of an aerospace-machine shop, to begin manufacturing lightweight motorcycle parts to help his bikes to perform better, faster, and with less whining about how all the other neighborhood bikes have little sidecars to play with. Years later, Jon and his wife, Lettie, opened Nichols Sport Bikes and staffed it with a team of skilled technicians. Bikes can be heard bolting from their 2,500-square-foot facility bolstered by revitalizing oil changes, maintenance, and a full line of Jon's Ducati replacement parts.
Outfitted with crisp red shirts and hands well versed in shop talk, SCR Auto Center’s car custodians expertly execute a robust array of automotive services. During each oil change, chariots, like homesick astronauts, gulp down up to 5 quarts of 5W-30 oil and wipe the corners of their mouths with new filters (cartridge filters not included) before a tasting menu of fresh fluids further whet thirsty receptacles. Technicians then rotate tires into a comfortable radius and thoroughly inspect vehicles in search of disrepair and defects. To top off the automotive spa package, exteriors receive a thorough scrub down and a kiss on the cheek, given ever so gently. SCR Auto Center’s waiting area stocks complimentary coffee, refreshments, and Internet, and an early-bird drop-off option accommodates drivers’ busy schedules.
