The Ultimate Wash starts with a quick high-pressure pre-spray that loosens dust's death grip on your road-ship's hull, followed by a thorough wheel cleaning and an underbody blast that scrubs the car's seldom-seen tummy. While you're playing an intense game of racquetball inside your car, Classy Chassis will buff the car's exterior and reveal its natural shine with a tri-color polish process. As a final nicety before the rinse and dry, the car wash will apply a 30-day sealant with rain repel—the next best thing to attaching an RV-sized umbrella to the roof.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
Center Collision's owner Kevin House has had his head under the hood for more than 30 years. It all started in his garage as a teenager, when he became fascinated with cars and how they work. Today, he keeps that passion alive at his fully equipped, 8,000-sq. ft. full-service shop, where he and his team of certified technicians perform auto body and collision repair work. They do everything from helming complete paint jobs to replacing bumpers, fenders, and factory-installed fuzzy dice. They also work on dents, scratches, and frame repair, often completing most jobs within a couple days of drop-off. For customers in a bind, they operate tow-trucks and dole out rental vehicles at a reduced rate. To maintain the appearance of prized autos, they also offer exterior and interior detailing services.
