Tidal Wave Hand Car Wash's talented staff stabilizes chipped windows and swaps too-far-gone windshields for clear replacements. During the chip-repair service, technicians stymie small glass divots before they can grow into large, dangerous cracks that spell out cursive obscenities. One or two chip repairs seal over rock and debris damage before the entire window becomes impaired, leaving glass clear and driver visibility restored and safe. Skilled staffers replace windshields that have been damaged beyond repair can be removed and replaced with high-quality glass that allows commuters a clear view of the road and the thumb of a hitchhiking diplomat ($225+).
The technicians at Mobil 1 Lube Express promote vehicles' longevity by protecting their most important part—the engine. Mechanics maintain rides with regular oil changes to promote cleanliness and reduce friction on moving parts, keeping them in factory condition without use of a time machine. The technicians augment their vehicular refresher course with maintenance ranging from rotating tires to cleaning fuel systems. All of their handiwork is backed by the Mobil 1 brand, though the high-ceilinged blue and white garage pours nine brands of oils in addition to Mobil 1, allowing vehicles to sip the cocktail of their choice.

Road-weary wagons shed salt and grime while adding protective finishes as they pass through Palos Auto Spa’s automatic wash. Before the car wash welcomes tired trucks and cars with a soft, soapy embrace, it offers them a kindhearted presoak conditioner ($12.75). Then, a high-pressure wash dismisses lingering road residue from the exterior, Armor All Body Shied coats your car in a bulletproof sheen, and an undercarriage wash and wheel-blaster treatment expel dirt and dust before they metamorphose into rust. A tire dressing with included rim scrubbing ($3), VisionClear window protectant, tri-foam polish, hand-towel try and new air freshener round out the package.
The professional staff at Algonquin Auto Wash & Detail recaptures vehicles' lost beauty with the help of Meguiar's wax, paint buffers, and shampoo. Amongst a menu of wash packages are à la carte flourishes of Simoniz tire shines, Rain-X body shields, and clay-bar treatments, which add extra luster to vehicles' features. Technicians also perform engine details and paint restorations for rides that have accumulated dirt over the years or whose protective tarps followed their dreams to shield baseball diamonds during rain delays.
One day in 1946, Bob Fuller returned home from military service to resume civilian life. By the time the sun had set, he was a business owner. The original location of Fuller's Carwash & Detail Centers, which he claimed with a handshake and a hip twist on that day more than 60 years ago, now serves as the flagship shop, the anchor for a business that has branched out to 11 more locations. Seven days a week, washers lavish cars with soap and special treatment, and detailing services help cars to rediscover their showroom shines. Some locations offer lube and auto centers, with staff technicians ready to remedy mechanical problems and translate esoteric owners' manuals, and convenience stores that stock snacks for drivers and fuel to keep their vehicles humming along as happily as The Little Engine That Couldn't, But Still Stayed Optimistic.
