When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
In business since 1969, Ice Cold Air pioneered automotive air conditioning in the Florida area and today provides repair and maintenance services at more than a dozen locations across central Florida. In addition to comprehensive car care, the staff at each facility is committed to providing superior customer service, a fact that is evident from a 97.3% customer-satisfaction rating based on customer-submitted surveys. The team achieves this rating by going above and beyond friendly service, offering intermittently scheduled seminars on vehicular maintenance, free AC and brake checks, and, at some locations, the opportunity for customers to provide their own car parts and gremlin-repellant air fresheners.

Owned by experienced auto repairman Randy Meyers, Honka Automotive relieves roadsters of conundrums caused by curmudgeonly oil and impure oil filters. Drop off a compromised cruiser or a plagued pickup for a comprehensive oil change, which purges oil reservoirs of world-worn pomades and tops off tanks with up to 5 quarts of a fresh-faced premium bulk blend. After swapping sedan syrups, a system surgeon will substitute the car's old colander for a new filter not yet corrupted by engine grease or coffee grounds. Next, talented technicians will examine the vehicle from bumper to bumper to diagnose any safety concerns, discover maintenance issues, and locate hard-to-find on-off switches. Over the course of 12 months, change a car’s motor oil up to three times, or get one oil change for three different cars.
