Michael Weis founded The Auto Club at the dawn of the new millennium, consummating a lifelong love affair with customizing vehicles so they reflect their drivers' desires for style and functionality. Weis’s team calls upon more than 20 years of experience in the auto industry, a background that provides familiarity with vintage stereo and security technology and enables seamless upgrades for each make and model. A sky-blue sign modestly announces the tidy garage, around which cars restored to pristine condition or sporting tinted windows and hood tattoos of Weis's face serve as the real billboard for the crew's handiwork.
Livingston Avenue Car Wash uses a combination of water, wax, and wheel cleaner to get cars looking as clean as they did in the showroom. The wash facility offers multiple packages that cater to different degrees of dirtiness, with such treatments as triple-foam polish and clear-coat protectants keeping exteriors shiny. The wash packages include power washing and undercarriage washes, and the detail packages take cleanings?even further by having the technicians scour all parts of the car to remove the clingiest dirt and trim fuzzy dice with nail clippers.
Since Angelo Resta first opened his business 67 years ago, Resta's Car Care & Rental has kept customers happy and vehicles shipshape with expert detailing, oil changes, new tires, and repair services. The bustling, five-bay auto shop traces its origins to 1946, when most of the roads around Somerset were paved in dirt, and cars were still propelled by 2-ton steam engines. Today, Angelo's sons, Ed and Frank, run the business, which is now a certified NAPA Auto Care Center where clients drop off their modern four-wheeled friends for certified state inspections, emissions repairs, buffing and waxing services, and axle, air-conditioning, and transmission repairs. Drivers can also refuel their cars, trucks, and SUVs at the full-service Shell gas station, or pick up a convenient rental vehicle from nearby Fred's Auto Rental.
