With mechanical and artistic prowess, the technicians at Design Rides customizes autos inside and out. Their projects range from designing fiberglass trunks for Honda Civics to airbrushing dolphins along the side of Ford trucks. They enhance stereo systems with audio equipment from Kicker and PowerBass, and install remote car starters to let car owners activate ignitions at the push of a button and make neighbors think their car is haunted. When a complete makeover is not required, they keep cars in showroom shape with detailing services.
Specializing in auto glass replacement and vehicle accessories, the staff at The Mobile Electronics Guru refurbishes rides with gadgetry and detailing. The team touts certification from the National Glass Association, and they tint windows with film from SunTek and replace cracked windshields with sheets of glass from Pilkington and SRP Totalseal. The staff also installs a hodgepodge of items, including remote starters, audio and video equipment, and backup cameras that drivers can watch while reversing or parked at a drive-through movie theater. Auto and boat detailers wash and wax exteriors by hand and purge interiors of clutter and grime with shampoo suds and vacuums.
The dual tunnels of Waterworks Carwash invite sullied autos in for sudsy washes and detailing services, washing away dirt and salt stains with soft foam, then protecting them with wax. A team of technicians picks up where the tunnels leave off, vacuuming away cockpit-clogging dirt and trash. Packages pack roadster restoration into bundles featuring ascending levels of attention, while an à la carte menu helps auto owners extract single spots, condition leather accents, or shampoo seats sullied during their dog’s latest carpool.
Pennzoil’s rich raceway heritage spans decades, from its first appearance in the early 1930s lubricating the engine of Indy 500 driver Russell Snowberger to its recent use in 2007 Daytona 500–winner Kevin Harvick’s car. Whether on the track in the Sprint Cup Series or in a garage in the suburbs, car owners who lube their rides with Pennzoil motor oil benefit from a more than 100-year lineage that dates back to one of John D. Rockefeller's original companies. The velvety substance contains trademarked Hyper Cleansing Technology and Active Cleansing Agents, which help to purify the engine's components and ward off damage caused by gasoline byproducts such as soot, carbon, varnish, and sulfuric and nitric acid. Pennzoil’s many service stations dot terra firma from the Atlantic to the Pacific and feature friendly technicians who perform oil changes and replace parts gone missing after the neighbor’s metal-detector-club meetings.
