Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
The experts at VIP Auto Customs help car owners protect their vehicles from the scourge of thieves, the elements, and dull, boring hubcaps—and they’ve done so since 1993.

Technicians can equip roadsters with iridescent, brand-name rims or deck out trucks with new surround-sound speakers. VIP Auto Customs also offers Scotchgard paint-protection films for when you drive off with something on the roof of your car, such as coffee or another car.

They also sell premium wheels and tires and free cars from dents caused by debris on the road or the scornful gaze of golf carts.
