DFW Drive Your Dream grants rubber-burners the opportunity to pilot the industry’s most celebrated sports cars on predetermined routes. Drivers can strap in to experience the massive 400-horsepower motor of the Ferrari 360 Spider, which vibrates with barely tamed power as it climbs to speeds nearing 180 mph. The Gallardo streaks around hairpin turns with all-wheel-drive tires propelled by a 5-liter V10 engine. Ferrari's 483-horsepower F430 has the potential to reach speeds of up to 200 mph, and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster is equipped with an automatic paddleshift gearbox and produces 379 horsepower, or roughly 95 stagecoaches, from a 4.3-liter V8 engine. Top up or top down, the Vantage Roadster maintains its sleek Aston Martin design, earning its place among the iconic cars of today.

Outfitting autos in Oklahoma for 40 years, Bob Moore Auto Group has since expanded its services to Lone Star–state motorists seeking reliable care for their rides. Auto sprucing treatments commence by quenching thirsty tanks with a standard oil change followed by a burst of tire-boosting nitrogen, which results in more uniform wear and better gas mileage than tires filled with heavy regret. Once greased and plump, cars get a multipoint probe to inspect batteries, belts, and breaks, and they get wiper blade and defroster checks. Heaters and hoses get equal scrutiny, and tapped antifreeze and other fluids are replenished. Once complete, the ASC-certified technicians send drivers on their way with an emergency-kit list that will come in handy in case of roadside breakdowns or the occasional wrong turn into a rancor pit.
For more than 20 years, the staff at LD's Custom Detail has traveled to local homes and offices to care for clients. Although these clients, which range from sports cars to workhorse minivans, hail from different factories and eras, they all end up sharing one thing in common—a squint-inducing exterior.
To produce this signature shine, the staffers hand-wash cars with biodegradable Meguiar's shampoo—paying extra attention to wheels—before hand-drying fenders with paint-friendly chamois and microfiber towels. They also tidy up the interior, de-griming seats and dashes even in their most elementary wash packages. During more comprehensive detailing jobs, they feature premium upgrades, such as an application of upholstery protectant, a tar-removal service, an engine cleaning, and a spraying of post-apocalyptic-biker repellant.
