Inspired by the same brainwaves as the Build-A-Bear Workshop, RIDEMAKERZ allows visitors construct a customized toy car from the axles up with dozens of options that add up to nearly 650 million unique combinations. Guests begin by choosing a body from a stock of Vipers, Corvettes, Mustangs, trucks, and hot rods that can then be accessorized with free stock parts or specialty chassis, tires, rims, and oil slicks. The hot-lava Chevy Camaro ($32) sports a metaphor for the rubber it plans to burn with orange flames on its sides, and the jewel-blue RZ Rascal body pairs its smooth curves with working headlights and taillights ($22). Sets of multicolored or racing slick tires maintain traction while pushed across carpets, hardwood floors, or up the sides of living-room furniture ($4 for two). Glistening hubcaps ($3–$4 for two), undercarriage-glow lighting ($10), and other car accessories offer further customization, while sound-effect chips ($3) relieve vocal cords strained by persistent engine imitations. Builders can also upgrade to a radio-controlled street chassis ($25) to assert hands-free control over the vehicle's movements.

They mount and balance tires, repair flats, or outfit rides with snowshoes so that drivers can take them sledding.

Cerritos Nissan's oil changes keep auto innards well-greased with the addition of revivifying streams of fresh-faced fluids. Technicians bolster mechanical heartbeats by swapping out grimy crude, extending engine life, reducing friction, and evicting broken-down debris from piston hiding places. A new oil filter assists the lubrication quest, catching truant gunk before it can clog up whirling parts or tape “Kick Me” signs to the transmission. Cerritos Nissan's meticulous techs cap off car care packages with a tire rotation, mitigating uneven wear or premature baldness by shuffling rubbers into new positions.
