Auto Sound has helped automobiles shun sunrays for more than 19 years. A team of expert tintmasters smooth Suntek film onto each window, which keeps interiors cool while blocking 99% of UV rays and 98% of sidelong glances from hood ornaments. Auto Sound's crew removes preexisting glass tints for an additional $15 per window, and extra fees may apply for porthole darkening on luxury and foreign cars. Optional tinting upgrades ($30/window) can further increase cars' newfound privacy to hide even the most bedazzled steering-wheel cover.

John Meyer inherited his love of cars from his father, Bill, who started repairing cars in a Pittsburgh service station in 1955. Today, in his Cape Coral shop, the younger Meyer and his team of mechanics care for cars of all kinds during tune-ups, safety checks, tire services, and other routine-maintenance procedures. The shop relies on top manufacturers, such as Michelin, Firestone, and Dunlop, to perform all of its services.
