The Lewes Auto Mall detail shop revives the fresh-from-the-lot condition of soiled automobiles with its squad of four experienced detail gurus. Pull in to one of the vehicular beauty stalls for the thorough swabbings and revitalizing upgrades of one of the detail packages or a specific service; prices vary by size and age of the road racer, and any extreme conditions, such as excessive pet residue or evidence of grape-juice battles. The express clean covers all of the basic hygienic necessities, starting with a thorough hand scrubbing of the exterior, wheels and tires, a blow-dry, and a wipe down with a gentle microfiber caress ($30.95 for medium-size cars). Wheels are brightened, tires are shined, and all mirrors and glass surfaces, inside and out, are squeegeed for maximum reflectiveness. The meticulous minutia cleaner then attacks the interior, vacuuming up muffin crumbs and toweling off milkshake splatters on the dash. Or step up to the mini detail package, which encompasses all of the services of the express clean, plus a coat of protective sealant, an upholstery and carpet shampoo, leather and vinyl conditioning, and more ($40 for medium-size cars).

Highland Aerosports' instructors introduce students to the joys of unpowered flight though hang gliding. Most often, they perform tandem flights, strapping themselves into a two-person glider right alongside beginners and helping them control the craft. Such a task requires plenty of confidence, but the teachers have a lot of experience on their sides. Co-owner Sunny Venesky has personally taught more than 13,000 hang-gliding lessons, earning the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association's Hang Gliding Instructor of the Year award in 2003. Adam Elchin, the other half of the ownership team, boasts numbers almost as impressive, having taught 8,000 hang-gliding lessons and earned commendation from the USHPA for service to the sport.
Over thousands of flights, the duo has learned that students master the skills at their own pace and height. They're very accommodating about both issues. In addition to introductory flights at 2,000 feet, 2,500 feet, 3,000 feet, and 1 mile, they offer ongoing lessons at more subtle increments, such as 2,499 feet or "just out of reach of that giant."
The technicians at Mr. Tire maintain and repair more than three million cars a year, replenishing oil and rotating tires for sustained, smooth vehicle performance. During the oil change and tire rotation, technicians outfit autos with new oil filters and keep engines purring with up to five quarts of conventional oil. Mr. Tire’s technicians also inspect tires’ air- and peer-pressure levels, then rotate tires before bad influences can convince them to shoplift broken glass. A brake inspection acts as a reflex test for cars, keeping vehicles’ reaction times sharp.
