After an unlucky coin-flip forced him to sell control of his own tire business, Frank Bruneel had no choice but to start anew. The initial loss turned out to be fortuitous in the long run, however. Now, after affiliating with a vast tire-supply network, his Bruneel Tire Factory boasts 10 locations with ready access to an expansive selection of rubber circles. Frank has leveraged expansion to diversify the company's services, with each location staffed by ASE-certified technicians who perform routine maintenance, align tires, replace worn shocks and struts, and service AC systems by rigging them to vent the prom king's breath.
For more than 30 years, Oil Can Henry's has been making sure road warriors run safely and efficiently with their famous full-service oil change. Relax from the comfort of the driver’s seat as the friendly techs sate your engine’s thirsty parts with up to five quarts of Castrol GTX conventional oil, protecting the engine against thermal breakdown and dry skin. Apart from their delicious new oil, coddled cars also receive a new oil filter, chassis lubrication, windshield washing, and a visual inspection of both the chassis and under the hood. A check and fill of the power steering and windshield-washer fluid will leave the auto feeling refreshed, and a tire-pressure check and fill will leave it bouncing like a robotic baby. The maintenance mavens will also check everything from the brake fluid and PCV filter to the lights and windshield wipers, ensuring every inch of your chicken-less carriage is in optimal working order. A video monitor positioned next to the driver's window allows customers to view the entire under-hood and under-body service, and every change comes with Henry's Top-Up Guarantee, which allows customers to return within three months or 3,000 miles for a complimentary topping off of fluids (upon presentation of receipt).
Founder Cory Howard’s team of ASE-certified mechanics repairs domestic and imported cars and trucks with expertise bolstered by a 36-month warranty. With help from consistently updated diagnostic equipment, techs home in on wobbling wheels, frazzled electrical systems, and timing belts mistakenly set to Greenwich Mean Time. Save More also repairs shopworn engines and transmissions, tweaks heating and air-conditioning systems, and shushes rumbling parts with mufflers.
The technicians at Custom Truck transform stock trucks and SUVs into roving extensions of drivers' personalities. The team has been in the build-out business since 1971, which not only adds up to a lot of experience, but also means it has developed relationships with a sizable lineup of vendors—more than 125 in all. The extensive product list allows nearly any part of a vehicle to be swapped out for another model, from floor mats and seat covers to grilles and suspension systems.
