The 1967 Chevy Corvair had seen better days when it showed up on the doorstep of Dent Busters. Rust was slowly extinguishing its once-hot-pink flame decals, and the engine was left exposed by a missing hood. For the car, Dent Busters was either a final hope or final resting place. For Dent Busters, the car was just another makeover to hang on a wall of successes?a car the staff completely restored and sent flying down the road reignited by its newly painted flames.
It?s a typical scenario for the technicians at Dent Busters?cars come in severely rusted or dented, and leave in original factory condition. After an initial interview with the client, the techs get to work with research and assessment before offering an estimate. Once cleared to start, they can paintlessly repair dents , detail the interior, or provide complete collision repair, rust removal, and custom paint with computerized color matching. They document all progress and upload photos to the site so owners can feed their curiosity and print out copies to fill the empty space in their driveway.
Although Sallas Auto Repair began as a small, two-bay repair shop, owner and ASE-certified master technician Nick Sallas already had enough experience to fill a multifloor garage. Nick's journey through the automotive industry led him through the service centers of General Motors and Honda and included a 10-year ascension up Goodyear's training programs. He opened Sallas Auto Repair in 1993, fusing his experience with his passion for repairing vehicles and saving customers money. More than 20 years later, he and his wife have expanded the small garage into two AAA-approved facilities stocked with 15 service bays and 15 skilled and certified employees.
The staff at both Sallas Auto Repair locations perform bumper to bumper services, including oil changes, preventative maintenance, and most all repairs. Services and repairs in the authorized Napa Auto Care Centers are backed with 24-month and 24,000-mile warranties. During repairs guests relax in waiting rooms stocked with computer stations and free WiFi or take advantage of complimentary rides home should their car beg to spend the night. Sallas’ commitment to cars is rivaled only by its commitment to the community; the shop has supported numerous organizations ranging from the US military to local athletic programs.

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.
After decades of winning the admiration of stock-car racing fans with his aggressive driving strategy and off-track charisma, Rusty Wallace now gives others the chance to experience the rush of racing. He joined forces with Sodikart to roll out the Rusty Wallace Kart Experience, pairing kart with driver at some of the country's most celebrated racetracks. Racers can hop in a custom RT8 (or its kid-friendly counterpart, the LR4) and hit the gas, tearing up everything from the versatile road courses and speedy main track of the Atlanta Motor Speedway to the challenging lava pits of the Milwaukee Mile.
But this go-karting business has a big brother?the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. It's a high-speed trip into the pro-racing trade, with breathtaking ride-alongs and racing experiences in stock cars. Guests buckle up and sit shotgun alongside professional drivers as they fly down straightaways and around curves. They can even get behind the wheel themselves, finally feeling what it's like to be a professional driver.
