WallyPark removes one of the hassles of flying with secured self-serve and valet parking facilities in close proximity to major airports across the U.S. Though amenities vary by location, most include express check-in and checkout service, with WallyClub members also earning points toward free parking. WallyPark facilities ease the stress of airport commutes with complimentary newspapers, coffee, and a shuttle service that departs every 5?10 minutes 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Complimentary luggage assistance at some locations helps customers haul prized dirt collections to and from vehicles.

Their lots are gated, well lit, and monitored.
The knowledgeable guides at TourTime lead groups of curious local gapers and touring out-of-towners throughout northern Florida, offering hearty doses of entertaining facts on the region’s sights and history along the way. The private three-hour Jacksonville tour—which culminates with beer and pretzel sampling at the Anheuser-Busch brewery—begins with verbal perambulations through the history of the area’s first inhabitants, the Timuquan, and their fabled offerings of alligator-skin piñatas to French and Spanish colonizers. Cruise the River City’s downtown to eye the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars before visiting the Riverside/Avondale area and Florida’s first condos—originally known as “house larvae”—along with several historical homes, such as the Leon Cheek residence and the Marble House, made from Georgia–quarried marble and actual marbles. Along the way, tour takers are treated to tales of the Great Fire of 1901 and views of notable landmarks such as the Memorial Wall.

What makes your business stand out?
Golden Era Motors is a one-of-a-kind business that allows its clients the opportunity to drive and experience classic muscle cars. Our clients get to skip the high price tag and demanding time requirements inherent in owning classic cars and cut straight to the best part: driving them! Our clients are a diverse group: some are 25-year-old adrenaline junkies, others drive our cars as a "bucket list" item, and some are simply nostalgic [and] looking to reconnect with some exceptional examples of "American Muscle."
What inspired you
After years of enjoying my own classic cars, I started this business to share the pride and exhilaration that comes with driving them. Years of observation at car shows and "cruise-ins" revealed many in attendance did not actually own vehicles themselves, yet they had a fond appreciation for them. Golden Era Motors (GEM) allows those same fans a taste of what it's like to be in the game rather than on the sidelines. We want our clients to touch and interact with our classic muscle cars.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
The fringe benefits are tough to argue with! [I love] "test driving" and maintaining the collection.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We own all of the cars in our collection, and therefore you can be sure they have been properly maintained. We do not rent cars on behalf of private owners or play photography mind games with you. Every photo you see on our website was taken of an actual GEM car.
In its former life, the short-bus limo was part of a numbered fleet shuttling children to school daily, but in it’s current incarnation the little yellow vehicle is having much more fun. Behind the tinted windows, riders twirl around a dance pole beneath three flat-panel televisions. The air-conditioned transport features plush furnishings that cradle passengers as they browse WiFi in the cosmic luminescence of lasers, strobe lights, and neon lights. A GPS system allows the driver to get the bus to tailgate parties on time and keep the city clear of wasteful mounds of breadcrumbs. As black lights cause smiles to crackle brilliantly in the club-like bus, DVDs and CDs blast through a surround-sound system operated with touchscreen controls.
