Inside a 125,000-square-foot showroom at The Quad Resort & Casino can be found the very definition of wheeling and dealing. Here, The Auto Collections classic car show displays vaunted vehicles from every era of automobile manufacturing, and invites visitors to peruse the 250-strong assortment and even bid on the entries offered for sale. As they meander through the showroom, envisioning open roads and dreaming up believable alibis to tell jealous cars back at home, attendees can locate autos with notable backstories. These include Johnny Carson's 1939 Chrysler Royal, which he drove to his high school senior prom, as well as the 1962 Lincoln Continental that ferried President Kennedy to and fro. Among the dozens of horseless carriages available for purchase are a 1919 Pierce-Arrow, a 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera, and a 1953 Jaguar XK120.

The professional technicians at Angel's Auto Tint must have watched a lot of Knight Rider in the '80s, because these days they spend much of their time modifying cars to give them a look that's one part sleek and one part mysterious. Their specialties are tinting windows and smoking lights, but they can tackle all kinds of exterior remodels. When they aren't adding business logos to paint jobs or sharpening cars' grills into menacing teeth, they go inside the dash to install the latest audio equipment.
Time2tint improves cars' appearances and adds a layer of protection all in one fell swoop. With American Standard Window films that match factory windows on residential and commercial buildings, technicians add a barrier between the driver and distractions such as solar glare, heat, and UV rays. In doing so, they transform the car's look without painting it a new color or attaching hair extensions to the antenna. They use the same installation techniques and quality films to tint the windows of residential and commercial buildings, focusing on products that are designed not to fade, peel, or turn purple.
Terrible Herbst's staff cares for cars and the environment by swiping vehicular surfaces with eco-friendly Blue Coral products. During the ultimate full-service wash, vehicles are scoured inside and out over 20–25 minutes. Valets escort vehicles to the drive-thru tunnel, in which cars luxuriate in a bath of foam. A car caretaker then towel-dries its exterior and takes to the inside, wiping windows, dashboards, and consoles, and vacuuming dirt and Australopithecus-era crumbs from carpets. Wheels emerge from the treatment purged of dirt, and tires debut enameled in a protective dressing. The VIP express car wash with RainX cleanses cars in less than five minutes with a human-operated pre-scrub, then sends them through the underpass to bask in bubbles and a spot-free rinse.
