Since 1996, Shell Rapid Lube and AutoSpa's team of technicians have been giving vehicles expedited oil changes at their ever-expanding network of service shops. This extensive experience has translated to a quick turnaround time for the team's oil changes, which, in a span of about 20 minutes, fill cars with fresh lube, exchange their filters, double-check 18 of their vital points, and quiz their knowledge of General Motors trivia. The shops' car-wash tunnel runs vehicles through a gauntlet of brushes, soap, and water jets.
Theater of the American South celebrates Southern culture and history with a spring festival featuring a theatrical double-header, culinary demonstrations, speakers, and an antiques show. The Civil War in Song & Legend puts Broadway actor and 200-year-old gentleman Bill Schustik onstage to relive the turbulent 1860s by relating stories, personal memories of the events, and songs with intermittent youth-chorus and gospel-choir accompaniment. Doris Baizley’s Shiloh Rules portrays present-day Northern and Southern women involved in a reenactment of the famous battle as their personal feud escalates across the battlefield through events both dramatic and comedic. The antiques show proffers purchasable relics of past epochs in Southern history, providing relief for time-traveling antebellum ladies seeking their lost autograph books.
