Larry H. Miller Nissan's trained technicians reverse the effects of automobile aging by employing contemporary tools and experienced eyes for safer, more efficient transportation. Vehicular healers begin each 30- to 45-minute checkup with a 27-point inspection that evaluates roadsters' air conditioning, brakes, lights, cholesterol, and other parts to ensure overall motorized health. Then, mechanical mavens slake thirsty engines with a fresh draft of oil that protects against chafed pistons and inefficient motor function. Finally, tires play musical axles while rotators hum a lively tune to help aid in even wear.
The most difficult thing about the supercar driving experiences at Oxotic might be the first thing drivers do: actually choosing a ride. he company keeps its fleet of uber rare $300,000 supercars. Once drivers make their selection, though, it's a straight shot to the open road. Each experience begins with a brief orientation, during which instructors explain how every doodad in the car works so drivers don't hit the wrong button and accidentally shoot silly string from the exhaust pipe. The driving experiences themselves range from five to 100 miles in length, and souvenirs–such as high-def video recordings of rides–keep adrenalin rushes going long after the pistons stop pumping.
In Mazda of Lakewood’s service center, the technicians work with a singular goal: to get cars healthy and back on the road. They do that by running diagnostics, making repairs, and performing maintenance services such as oil changes. Meanwhile, the facility's showrooms and car lots abound with new Mazdas and certified pre-owned vehicles that boast low mileage, reflective finishes, and award-winning dashboard hula dancers.
It's a charity race with a back story like none other: bloodthirsty demons have been working in your community's offices, living in its homes, attending its schools. And now they're on the hunt and people are running for their lives. Citizens might be booking it across a field, seemingly far from the chaos, when shapes emerge on the horizon dressed head-to-toe in vampires' telltale black clothes. If you're a citizen, be prepared to run. If you're a vampire—lock in your target.
That's just part of what you might experience on the Vampire 5K, a twilight fun run where participants can register as "citizens" or "vampires" and take off from two separate starting lines. Both camps eventually converge in a chase that finds vamps trying to convert their mortal counterparts to the dark side. Citizens, dressed in white, sport two garlic flags; if the flags are taken before runners cross their finish line, they switch to a black tee and chase citizens. After the race, a moonlit party finds both camps sipping bloody marys during a dance party and award presentation. The race benefits the Mission to Hear Foundation, which provides hearing aids to underprivileged children, adults, and whatever they're calling the age group that comes in between these days.
