Trained Chux Trux technicians professionally install enhancers such as bed covers, steps, and chrome accessories, transforming standard vehicles into gleaming road warriors. Customers can browse the cavernous showrooms teeming with an array of custom wheels and tires as well as contractor necessities such as toolboxes, whistle music books, and ladder racks. The Chux Trux staff treats customers like family, special ordering and custom fabricating hard-to-find parts, remembering customers' birthdays, and never letting them live down their sixth-grade talent-show act.
The trained chauffeurs driving Vegas Limo's luxury new-model limousines pick guests up and take them around Greater Kansas City in style.

The Jack Miller Auto Group boasts more than half of a century in the automotive industry, and at Jack Miller Kia, new and pre-owned sedans, vans, and SUVs fill the showrooms, waiting to flaunt their low mileage and fully stocked features. Factory-trained technicians stand by six days a week in the service department, where oil changes and comprehensive detailing services make cars interchangeable with their showroom brethren. A full inventory of OEM parts and a 12,000-mile warranty on all parts and services infuse vehicles with the confidence to parallel park even on an 85-degree incline.
The roar from Faurot Field grows louder and louder as the Mizzou Express heads towards Columbia, shuttling Missouri alumni and Tigers fans to football games with round-trip service from Kansas City and Independence. Nestled into cozy seats on a luxury coach, guests can spend the trip watching highlights on the overhead TVs, sipping complimentary beer and soda, and chatting about the season with fellow passengers as professional drivers weather the linebackers blocking traffic on the highway. Exactly thirty minutes after each game, ticketholders make the short walk back to the awaiting bus to head back to Kansas City in equal comfort and safety.
Founded in 1957, Kansas City Ballet holds rank amongst the top ballet institutions in the U.S. At its two locations—including one at the newly renovated Bolender Center for Dance & Creativity—the company divides its services between two divisions. On the Academy side, more than 20 instructors utilize their varied performing backgrounds to school aspiring professionals in dance, beginning with children ages 3 and up.
But you don’t have to yearn for the spotlight to tap into Kansas City Ballet’s wisdom. For recreational steppers, or those simply hoping to make trips to the grocery store more interesting by pirouetting down the aisles, the company also features a Studio division aimed at dancers of all ages and abilities. There, fitness and fun get blended into a schedule of classes that includes Zumba, flamenco, and jazz, as well as Pilates, yoga, and boot camp-style offerings.
