"Car detailing is an art," according to Small Change's vehicular professionals, and this philosophy is backed up by their fastidious attention to detail and devotion to customer education. On location or at their headquarters, the technicians not only hand wash, wax, vacuum, and squeegee, but consult with customers post-treatment on best practices for keeping autos glossy and clean. Treatments are available individually or in packages, and a budget-conscious membership plan helps customers quit the necessity of getting only a quarter of their vehicle cleaned per visit.
The ASE-certified technicians at Dupont Tire & Auto, Inc. offer a variety of routine-maintenance services such as oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, and winterization. As customers wait to hear about the health of their automotive steeds, they can rest easy in a waiting room equipped with a television, free WiFi, and coffee.
Happy Car Express Wash revives dingy roadsters with three-minute, high-pressure baths in automatic car-wash bays. Under the guidance of helpful attendants, customers steer vehicles into wide washing stations for a Hip & Happy bath complete with triple-foam polish, underbody scrub, and a stylish up-do. As customers sit in the dry comfort of their car, jets of pressurized water target caked-on grime on the car exterior, and a glaze of tire shine brings out each road donut's glossy midnight sheen and helps prevent cracking, fading, and hardening of the treaded rubber. After a windy pass under turbo dryers, autos can cruise over to one of 12 complimentary DIY vacuuming stations to cleanse interiors of crumbs before they spontaneously generate back into cognizant PB&Js.
At Airwolf Aviation, founder Michele Rash and her team of instructors keep one thought in mind when training students to become certified pilots: "Would I sit in the back seat while he or she flew me around?" This question guides them while they tailor training for each student and has resulted in a pass/fail rate of 97% over the past three years.
With three flight schools, a fleet of Cessna airplanes, and a multi-engine Piper Aztec E, the instructors lead courses that qualify students for private, instrument, commercial, and multi-engine pilot licenses. They also help professional pilots earn flight-instructor certifications. When they’re not teaching lessons, Airwolf's team introduces clients to aviation through discovery flights and city tours that fly to the governor's floating mansion.
