Car-Gard has been catering to autos for more than 25 years. Its trained and fully insured specialists thoroughly buff and polish exteriors, using powerful machinery to work waxes deep into the paint job, or, if necessary, they can completely recondition a faded veneer. Inside the vehicle, staff members focus their efforts on safely cleaning soft interior fabrics and surfaces, and under the hood they restore engines to pristine running order. Car-Gard can also harness high-quality chemicals to clean foggy headlights, thus improving the clarity of your shadow-puppet soap operas.
The ASE-certified technicians at GB Auto Center work on both foreign and domestic vehicles, performing everything from oil changes to complete engine and transmission repair. Every service includes a 21-point inspection, allowing them to check for anything that might need repair. The technicians can also run computer diagnostics to find the source of funny engine sounds or red, itchy headlights. During services, customers can wait in a lobby with a flat-screen television and complimentary coffee, or stroll through GB Auto Center's used-car lot.
PDQ Car Wash has been cleaning cars and trucks since 1960. The Ultimate Exterior wash restores a car's youthful shimmer with a double pre-soap and a full exterior wash, and the tricolor and clear-coat sealers ensure a lasting shine. An under-chassis flush removes any dirt or gremlins before car pedicurists clean the wheels. The Manager's Special wash begins with an ashtray emptying, dashboard wiping, and thorough interior vacuuming to remove taco crumbs and dinosaur bones. The attention shifts to the auto's exterior as washers set up a pulley-platform system, helping themselves reach every window, apply tricolor conditioner, and de-ice the locks in the winter or after driving into a meat locker. After an exterior wash and under-chassis flush, warm air and towels dry the car as a Victorian shoe shiner polishes its wheels.
The full-service oil change includes up to 5 quarts of Mobil oil, a new oil filter, and a freshly lubricated chassis. Mobil1 Lubes’ experienced technicians will check and, if needed, fill the following parts and reservoirs: air filter, crankcase breather, PCV valve, transmission fluid, power-steering fluid, clutch fluid, windshield-washer solvent, antifreeze, battery electrolytes, wiper blades, lights, vehicle belts, tire pressure, and brakes, extending the lifespan of the vehicle and careless squirrels. Just when you thought the checklist champion reached for the belt, the exterior windows are washed, the interior is vacuumed, and any problems that need further maintenance will be explained. If your road baby demands oil opulence, you can top off oil between services for free.
For more than 35 years, Village Lanes has hosted neighborhood bowling-league playoffs, birthday parties, and weekday bowling trips. Whether visitors are barely capable of keeping balls out of the gutter or able to clean rain gutters with a well-aimed bowl, they find their niche at this family-run alley. USBC Silver-certified coach Jerry Polarek encourages his students to achieve their best during weekend and after-school youth leagues, and birthday and corporate parties of all sizes share pizza and celebratory high-fives lane side. After knocking self-satisfied smirks off the faces of taunting pins, of-age guests can share celebratory sips of beer and cocktails at the comfortable lounge or chow down on pizza and buffalo wings at the snack bar.
The hum of a smoothly running engine, the whisper of newly tinted windows rolling up, and the swish of industrious windshield wipers. The ASE-certified technicians at Specialty Auto Sales & Service create this symphony of sounds as they repair and replace vehicular components ranging from troubled engines to phlegmy exhaust pipes. They can also trick out autos with custom work such as tinted windows or high-intensity discharge headlights. In addition to repairs, installations, and basic maintenance services, the center matches drivers with used cars. Its shifting inventory ranges from Fords and Pontiacs to Chevrolets and Saturns, originally developed to zoom around the planet’s racetrack of rings.
