Herb's Garage is a mainstay of the Costa Mesa community, having maintained and repaired area automobiles for 45 years. ASE-certified technicians work on foreign and domestic vehicles, providing a free 15-point inspection with all services, including tune-ups, oil changes, and repair of problems plaguing the brakes, exhaust, electrical system, cooling system, and transmission. As their cars are tended to, clients can wait in the indoor lounge, which features a color TV and a saltwater aquarium where fish flit around the tank or circle it aimlessly to demonstrate existential futility.
Angels Auto Spa keeps cars sparkling with hand and soft cloth washes. Car wash packages include wheel sparkle and computerized wheel cleaners, interior vacuuming, and cleaning of the dash and consoles. For vehicles that require extra care, the techs perform extensive detailing in the form of high-speed buffing and Meguiar’s hand wax. Extras such as carpet shampooing further help cars regain the look they had when they rolled out of the showroom.
Superior Car Wash's technicians spruce up autos by scrubbing off exterior grime and enhancing paint with waxes from Meguiar’s and Nano Shine. The techs thoroughly dislodge debris from roof to undercarriage before moving inside to vacuum and steam clean surfaces and test the grip of cup holders. An adjoining gas station fills up gas tanks with diesel and racing fuel, and a convenience store and gift shop whiles away the time of waiting drivers.
Though Newport Car Wash's cleaners specialize in hand washing luxury and high-end cars, they also work to bring out the elegant side of more humble rides. Customers kick back in a waiting room with air conditioning, a flat-screen television, a leather couch, and a variety of beverages as the technicians tend to vehicles. They draw upon shelves of wax, polish, wheel conditioners, and other products, leaving interiors and exteriors gleaming like a knight at a waterpark.
Meredith Morisoli, the smiling face behind The Point Acupuncture, is a California-licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. As a diplomat of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, she specializes in acupuncture therapy—the practice of using tiny, disposable, sterile needles to treat trigger points on the body that can correspond to stress, back pain, sciatica, and addictions. She also uses her vast knowledge to perform services that include Chinese cupping massage, acupressure, and nutritional counseling.
At Executive Look Auto Detailing, teams of thorough car-cleaning technicians beautify and protect precious cars, trucks, and SUVs with intensive cosmetic treatments. Top-shelf Menzerna polish compounds impart a glossy sheen and fill in superficial scratches, and coats of Carnauba wax give cars a glistening finish that brings to mind the day it was built and christened on the factory floor. Interior cleanings freshen sullied upholstery and faded dashboards, and meticulous hand washings banish the squashed bugs and kicked-up dust from road journeys.:m]]
