The mechanics at Fairway Chevrolet restore road warriors by rotating tires, replacing oil, and inspecting important car components during one-hour services. After draining debris-clogged oil from engines, certified techs slick parched auto pistons and joints with up to 5 quarts of a new lubricant. Mechanics rotate rollers so they wear evenly and examine wiper blades, auto glass, and bobbleheads of Henry Ford glued to dashboards during multipoint inspections. Autos trailed by dust clouds and littered with fast-food bags receive an exterior wash and swift interior tidying, which reveals the colors in carpet and upholstery.
A nationally touring comedian and the author of the award-winning young-adult self-help novel Don't Feed the Bully, Brad Tassell brings his signature brand of inspirational comedy to each "Comic Therapy Group Session." Both a spoof of and tribute to the traditional group therapy session, Tassell's one-hour act summons up laughs from deep within bellies while also striving to improve attendees’ self-worth with lessons on empathy awareness and ego control. Shows start with each audience member decorating their own "thera-cookie” with a frosting design that uniquely represents them. After comic nuggets from Brad and a session of music therapy, the afternoon culminates with guests interpreting each others' cookies, learning about friends and strangers alike before chowing down on a psychological portrait more delectable than a Rorschach blot drawn in caviar.
Chefs at Hi Bombay have honed recipes for curry, vindaloo, and spicy masala over the course of 23 years, yielding a carefully spiced menu of Northern Indian classics and regional seafood specialties.

Hi Bombay also rents a 75-person banquet room for catered gatherings, and welcomes diners on major holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and the anniversary of Caddyshack II's DVD release.

Beverly Hills Rent-A-Car places clients in the driver seats of dream rides and luxury chariots. A 24-hour excursion includes 50 miles of traversing, reversing, and literary free-versing in one of three motorcars. The Lamborghini Gallardo seats two as it jets along the speedway behind the awesome might of a V10 engine. Since joining the Lamborghini lineup in 2004, the Gallardo has surpassed all other models in sales, including the legendary Diablo. Luxury enthusiasts may also opt for one of two Mercedes mobiles: the S550 is the flagship of the Mercedes lineup in both style and technical innovation, and the E350 convertible churns up a healthy head breeze with a V6 engine and a V8 juice dispenser.
Each oil change sees RG Motorworks' engine-coddling technicians outfitting road steeds with a fresh oil filter and healthy serving of vehicular life essence, plus a check and refilling of every tire. An ensuing 21-point inspection spends approximately 45 minutes checking fluid levels, testing signal lights, and constructing automobile dating profiles based on the car's radio presets. Further component checks of the belts, pulleys, filters, hoses, and electrical workings give steel stallions a thorough examination before sending them off with a clean bill of health. Customers opting for synthetic oil transfusions enjoy up to 2,000 extra miles of debris-fighting performance. RG Motorworks fits scheduled service into tight agendas, allowing customers to check other errands off the list and catch up on Gobots reruns during their vehicle's personal spa day.
