In addition to proudly donning the insignia that represents ASE certification, all of the technicians at Oakdale Truck & Auto spent at least 10 years beneath the service bays of dealerships. Utilizing the fruits of their experience, the techs tend to cars by providing fresh oil, tire tweaking, or pithy comebacks after encounters with witty bumper stickers. They also boost owner confidence with free inspections and the promise of warranties on all services.
The automotive center treats cars with as much courtesy as their owners. As vehicles revel in the care of technicians, drivers can take a break of their own by hopping aboard Oakdale Truck & Auto's local shuttle, which supplies free rides to homes, offices, or the nearest air-freshener factory. :m]]
The ARCA-sanctioned half-mile semi-banked oval speedway Toledo Speedway hosts stock car racing melees every Friday night of the summer months. Sportman, street stock, four-cylinder, and figure-8 action will entertain speed-craving spectators with the sight of daring inside passes and near-misses; in events such as the R & M Recycling Street Stock feature and Jeff’s Collision 4-Cylinder race, drivers careen around the speedway in a daring ballet of leaping pistons and pirouetting axles. SpongeBob and his geometric wardrobe will warm up the crowd while kids storm the track to dog-pile their favorite drivers for autograph requests before the racing commences. Seating at the speedway is first-come, first-serve, allowing attendees to come early to avoid being seated behind the top-hats of confused 19th-cenutry horse-racing bettors.
On March 4th, 1902, Chicago hosted a meeting of like-minded futurists. They represented nine different automobile clubs that had recently formed as vehicles started hitting the roads across the nation. They came together at the summit to form a national motoring organization, and the result of their efforts became known as the AAA. Today, AAA takes the attendant hassle out of driving with roadside assistance, insurance, vehicle maintenance, and travel guides for the entire country.
AAA Northwest Ohio Car Care Plus focuses specifically on tuning up and repairing vehicles from three company-owned facilities scattered across Toledo. At each location, skilled techs wield the latest equipment to perform everything from simple oil swaps to full-service mechanical and electrical repairs and upgrades, such as teaching cars not to shut off in panic whenever they hear lightning.
For more than two decades, cars have been emerging from Perretti's Auto Detailing gleaming with a like-showroom shine. The staff applies carnauba wax by hand, bestowing vehicles with a sheen that can last up to eight months and is impenetrable by squirt-gun attacks or razzberries from jealous neighbors. Rubout compound or correction cream can reduce the appearance of small marks and scratches, and the crew is careful to use only foam pads in order to prevent swirl marks. To match the like-new exterior, technicians can then move inside to clean and seal most surfaces, including cracks in leather upholstery.
Russ' Auto Wash implements the tools acquired from its 60 years in the car-cleaning trade to groom dirty cars inside automated tunnels of tidiness. After the attentive staff gives them a welcoming pat on the hood, cars pull forward for a cleansing interior and exterior wash and detailing, both of which strip away dirt and grime.
