Thanks to their dealings with a fleet of used cars, the mechanics at Ireland Motorcars are well versed in what it takes to keep road-worn vehicles running and attractive. In the full-service maintenance shop, they thoroughly inspect key parts and change out briny oil for clean lubricants. Detailing services return cars to showroom cleanliness, allowing their owners to stuff them back in the box and return them to the car store as though they were never opened.
While Pro Car Detailing's team understands the aesthetics of a clean, sleek vehicle are invaluable, they also know maintaining it protects each car owner's investment. They protect that investment with detailing services ranging from a quick cleanup to a complete interior and exterior scrubbing. Their detailing arsenal also includes paint correction, headlight restoration, and scratch removal. Not willing to limit this expertise to cars only, they also detail boats and planes.
Lube Stop has been lauded by both local and national press outlets for its Sustainability Program, which decreases the environmental impact of the shop's auto services.

Besides eight kinds of oil changes, Lube Stop provides multipoint inspections, tire rotations, wiper blade replacement, and other maintenance and repair services. More than 240 employees—who receive continuous training to keep up with eco-friendly practices—helm the company's 37 Cleveland- and Akron-area locations, all of which offer E-Check emissions-testing stations.

Amid the uncertainty and complex nature of the aviation industry in the early 2000s, Denise and Mike decided to buck opposition and follow their dreams. The husband-and-wife team kept their dream relatively simple: move to northeast Ohio, secure season tickets for the Indians and Browns, and open up the world of flight to others. They soon took Mike's 35 years experience as an entrepreneur and Denise's time as a commercial pilot and turned it into American Winds Flight Academy. Today, their flight academy preps prospective pilots with FAA-approved ground courses and hands-on instruction in their fleet of Piper and Cessna airplanes and accommodating pterodactyls. The duo's 15-plus flight-training courses and fast-track program include everything from advanced flight-simulator instruction to commercial-pilot certification. Dedicated to assisting veterans on their path to become commercial pilots, American Winds Flight Academy is one of 12 FAA-licensed (Part 141) flight schools in the state of Ohio.
