Graff Chevrolet kicks out the dirt passengers from cars, trucks, and SUVs of any make and model. Each vehicle’s five- to six-hour renaissance detail begins with an engine-bay bathing to blast away built-up grime. Vehicle exteriors are thoroughly washed and waxed before the doors are opened to treat interiors to a thorough vacuuming, followed by hot-water extraction on carpets and seats. Full transparency is returned to slurpee-splattered windows, and wheels and tires are scrubbed and shined until even chrome accessories genuflect in genuine admiration. Doorjambs are relieved from obstinate mudcakes, and stowaway dust bunnies are removed from the trunk until car and driver are at last joyously reunited.
Lakeside Motor Sports' large selection of land- and water-traversing vessels, parts, and accessories readies riders for the great outdoors year-round. Crest the waves on an Airhead Blast inner tube ($66.10) with webbing-covered handles and knuckle-guards or shroud your noggin in the adjustable cheek pads of a GMAX ATV helmet. Tools and supplies such as the Sea-Doo rechargeable inflator ($29.99) keep watercraft afloat and anchors and docking equipment sidle wanderlusting boats to their buoyant garages. Snowmobile accessories, life vests and gear from name brands such as Yamaha and ColdWave round out Lakeside Motor Sports’ arsenal of outdoor essentials. Power-sport carriages in need of upkeep can also enlist the professional services of Lakeside Motor Sport’s crack maintenance team.
In 1907, Guy Garber was introduced to the founder of General Motors. Though cars were still a novelty in much of the country then, Guy soon found himself managing one of the nation's first Buick dealerships. Through the Great Depression and the two world wars, Guy remained in the exhilarating automotive industry, with his family taking over in the 60s and still helming the business today. Today they apply more than a century of accumulated skill with old-fashioned service standards while presiding over the latest Chevrolet models as well as an inventory of preowned vehicles. The car has progressed greatly from the days of wooden wheels and bumper stickers about honor students’ dueling prowess, and Garber's techs have kept with the times. They offer a slew of maintenance and repair services, from oil changes to engine replacements, that extend each vehicle's longevity and help propel the automobile into a smooth-driving future.
Pennzoil’s rich raceway heritage spans decades, from its first appearance in the early 1930s lubricating the engine of Indy 500 driver Russell Snowberger to its recent use in 2007 Daytona 500–winner Kevin Harvick’s car. Whether on the track in the Sprint Cup Series or in a garage in the suburbs, car owners who lube their rides with Pennzoil motor oil benefit from a more than 100-year lineage that dates back to one of John D. Rockefeller's original companies. The velvety substance contains trademarked Hyper Cleansing Technology and Active Cleansing Agents, which help to purify the engine's components and ward off damage caused by gasoline byproducts such as soot, carbon, varnish, and sulfuric and nitric acid. Pennzoil’s many service stations dot terra firma from the Atlantic to the Pacific and feature friendly technicians who perform oil changes and replace parts gone missing after the neighbor’s metal-detector-club meetings.
Randy Wise's team of expert mechanics fends off vehicular woes by executing dealership-quality maintenance and repair services. During each oil change, fresh, spongy filters whet engine’s appetites for up to 5 quarts of piquant oil. The service can increase gasket function, soothe shafts, and strengthen auto immune systems against tailgating-transmitted diseases. Technicians prevent wobbly-wheel syndrome by performing a tire rotation for buyers of the first option, and both options include a multipoint inspection that checks cars for any latent damage or wear. A waiting room with complimentary coffee and popcorn and a children's play area entertain the car’s immediate family during each 30- to 60-minute appointment.
With lube and service centers spread across America, Valvoline Instant Oil Change ensures that roads from coast to coast teem with automotive vigor. Certified technicians perform a roster of services, including quick in-and-out oil changes that allow motorists to arrive without an appointment and remain in their car while Valvoline oils forge a truce between metal parts.
All Tune and Lube is an ASE-certified facility that offers maintenance and repairs.
