Vehicles of all makes and models are welcome to coast into Matt Blatt Tire & Auto’s service center for tune-ups, preventive maintenance, and repairs. The experienced technicians resolve any automotive issues your car may have, from low oil to busted transmissions and engines that are planning an early retirement on a beachfront junkyard. Though they’ll happily service any type of car, the mechanics boast special certification in Suzukis, and keep a large stock of Suzuki replacement parts on hand so cars can return to the road as quickly as possible. Inside the dealership’s show rooms, brand-new Suzuki cars, minivans, and SUVs flaunt their factory finishes and unspoiled odometers. The facility also carries a large variety of low-mileage, preowned vehicles.
A clean car pulls out of the wash and heads for home. Down the road, its front tire connects with a muddy pothole, which—with a brown splash of goop—instantly sends it back to square one. The technicians at Master Detailers help drivers avoid this tragedy by traveling directly to their driveways. Once there, they deploy sea sponges, 3M sealant wax, and vacuums and set to work bringing boats, SUVs, and classic cars back to their showroom glory days.
Though a student has to be 17 years old to get his or her pilot's license, the instructors at Crosswinds Flight School start flyers as young as 12 on the path toward becoming new pilots. On the runways of Cross Keys Airport in Williamstown, New Jersey, they train students in the basic operations, takeoff, and steering procedures of compact Cessna and Piper Cherokee aircraft. As instructors guide their students toward a private pilot's license or instrument rating, they field questions about specific cockpit controls, techniques of flight, and types of clouds that make the best cotton candy. They progressively fine-tune the skill sets of participants in each course through short solo flights and up to 150-mile cross-country voyages.
Road grime irks the certified detail technicians at Plush Luxury Automotive Detailing. When they see it clinging to a vehicle in their work bay, they spring for bottles of P21S, Meguiar’s, Jet Seal, and Aquapel and launch into one of their five levels of detailing services. Each detail builds upon the previous detail¬—like directions to a town without road signs—and showcases the shop's bevy of tools and techniques. Depending on the chosen level, techs wash exteriors by hand with two buckets and Grit Guards, dry shells with microfiber and waffle weave towels, evict interior debris with gusts of compressed air, and massage away smudges and smears with ammonia-free window cleaner.
Dynamic Tint's skilled technicians guard cars, homes, and businesses from harsh UV rays with masterfully applied sheets of high-quality 3M film. Automotive tinting cuts down on driver fatigue by reducing glare and prevents leather and fabric damage with window darkening backed by a lifetime manufacturer's warranty. Commercial and residential tinting reduce up to 99% of ultraviolet beams and 79% of solar energy, cutting down on energy expenses while maintaining stable, comfortable room temperatures. Protective shields of sleek, black security film guard glass panes from dangerous shattering and add a privacy screen for top-secret business meetings or sessions of singing power ballads into a hairbrush.
Bring anything from a beater to a Bentley into Waterline Auto Spa and receive professional pampering for your soon-to-be-snazzy road baby. The full service plus washing package includes a full exterior wash with spot-free rinse, wheel and tire cleaner, and full undercarriage cleanse. A sealer wax, clear-coat protection, and triple-foam polish will speed up your hood-slide time, impressing potential suitors. When the car seems too intoxicated to take any more shots of cleanliness, the professionally uniformed, new-car-scented workers will shine the tires, vacuum the interior, condition the dash and console, and even spritz your favorite scent of air freshener.
