Brothers Jason and Mike Baxter grew up with an intense love for muscle cars, leading them to accumulate a few over the years. But enjoying these cars wasn't enough. They wanted to share the romance of motoring down open highways inside V8-powered rolling Detroit iron with others. And most importantly, they wanted to make that experience affordable. From out of these simple guidelines, they started American Muscle Car Rentals.
Sporting a fleet of muscle cars that combine modern amenities with bygone-era flair, Jason and Mike outfit drivers with rides such as Dodge Challengers, Shelby Cobras, and Chevy Camaros. The cars contain up to 580 horsepower and enough clout to upgrade Pluto’s status back to planet. A convenient person-and-vehicle dropoff removes legwork and unites man and machine at predetermined locations.
Handling more than just the swap-out of your car's oily core, the Jiffy Lube Signature Service oil change comes standard with a fresh-from-the-box filter; a checking and filling of transmission, differential, power-steering, and windshield-washer fluids; and a detailed inspection of the antifreeze and coolant reservoirs, engine air-filtration system, serpentine belts, wiper blades, and exterior lights.
Kwik Kar of Buda is owned by the husband-and-wife team of Reed and Nora Shoemaker, and their familial connection shows in the warmth of their business. For instance, between oil changes customers are welcome to stop by for a free fluid check or top-off, free vacuum, or free window wash. Then there's always hot coffee, also complimentary. But when it comes to auto services, the Shoemakers are professional and attuned to the needs of each vehicle. Trained technicians offer many services to keep cars on the road rather than beneath a tarp or at the bottom of a tar pit?oil changes, transmission services, radiator services, and tire rotations, as well as 16-point packages that render cars well-oiled, inspected for safety, and cleaned on the inside and out.
Anthony D. Chavira opened ATX Imperial Auto Glass to correct the shortcomings he saw in other auto-glass businesses. Prioritizing customer relationships over sales, Anthony has managed to spread his brand of service across eight shops where technicians endure rigorous training to earn certifications from Delta Kits, the National Glass Association, and the National Windshield Repair Association. After they’ve mended glass wounds such as rock chips and cracks or replaced entire panes, the crew caps off each service by vacuuming interiors, washing windows, and burning busted glass on a pyre.

From 1927 until 2009, the Piper Aircraft company produced 144,000 airplanes. Of those, 90,000 are still flying. One is a 1978 single-engine Saratoga that can often be seen soaring over the hills and lakes of the Texas landscape.
Inside that Saratoga, the Air Tours Texas pilots lead up to five passengers on scenic tours and adventures, sharing scenic aerial views of Lake Travis, Canyon Lake, Austin, San Antonio, and Enchanted Rock with their awestruck human cargo. The group of pilots also offers sunset flights, stunningly romantic marriage-proposal flights, and copilot experiences that introduce aspiring pilots to flight basics.
