Originally founded in 1959 by Kurt Ziebart as Ziebart International Corp., Ziebart has morphed from an auto-rust-prevention outfit into a full-service auto accessory and detail shop that has cropped up at some 400 locations in 30 countries. Performing everything from window tinting and professional detailing to electronics installation, Ziebart's experienced staff cares for cars with high-end products, including seasonal paint protectant and the company’s renowned rust inhibitors. To protect cars inside and out, Ziebart technicians also install accouterments such as alarm systems to thwart thieves and sunroofs to thwart unflattering film negatives from processing correctly (services may vary by location).

Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
At Midwest Detailing and Auto Reconditioning, owner John Carlson's team of techs washes, buffs, and waxes vehicles' exteriors with high-quality 3M products. But they don't stop there. In fact, of the business's dozens of detailing services, more than half take place inside the vehicle. During an interior cleaning, staffers vacuum and shampoo upholstery, remove stains, and even offset water damage. Like a tree that's grown through a wire fence or away from a weirdo with a chainsaw, the team knows how to adapt to the circumstances, choosing different products based on the color and material of the vehicle's interior.

On the inside, they use shampoos, vacuums, and window cleaners to remove debris and other forms of dirt without having to wait for a group of hitchhiking maids on the side of the road.
