After draining debris-clogged oil from engines, certified techs slick parched auto pistons and joints with up to 5 quarts of a new lubricant. Mechanics rotate rollers so they wear evenly and examine wiper blades, auto glass, and bobbleheads of Henry Ford glued to dashboards during multipoint inspections. Autos trailed by dust clouds and littered with fast-food bags receive an exterior wash and swift interior tidying, which reveals the colors in carpet and upholstery.

Johnny Yeager originally ran a Las Vegas advertising and rental business. That changed after he saw the way people gawked at one of his company's bright red, three-wheeled scooters as it cruised through Red Rock Canyon. Beginning in 2008, Johnny experimented with using the little two-seater vehicles to ferry clients through tours of the Las Vegas landscape. Slowly, the visibility of the scooters along the Strip and at local attractions created a buzz among tourists. It wasn’t long before Johnny's advertising business had become a booming scooter tour service thanks to social media and a charismatic troupe of guides, all well-versed in the local hotspots and best ways of sneaking scooters into buffet lines. The little red scooters go on daily tours of the Strip and have also been joined by guided car- and van-borne excursions to Sedona and Red Rock Canyon.
