Since 1962, the motor mavens at Big O Tires have been treating tin lizzies to a slew of services, including their specialty 30-minute express oil changes. The tireless techs speedily slurp out old oil with anteater-esque precision, replacing worn out filters, and rewarding loyal dip sticks with up to 5 quarts of new crude. Following a chassis lubrication, wheel wranglers remove each tire, before moving them and their entire DVD collection to a new home in an adjacent wheel well, helping to guarantee even wear and tear. After a thorough fluid check and preventative maintenance analysis, revamped rides are happily reunited with the owners to depart together into the sunset. Upgrades are available for diesel oil (price based on vehicle and location), high-mileage oil ($10–$15 extra), and synthetic oil ($20–$30 extra).

As dawn breaks over the campsite, soldiers begin stirring in their tents. Some tend to breakfasts over campfires while others see to the artillery. It's a scene straight from a Revolutionary War encampment—and that's exactly the way the reenactors intended it. Each year, roughly 275 of them flock to Locust Grove to camp out for two days, each of which ends with an artfully staged mock battle.

But when visitors come to the 18th Century Market Fair, they won't just find battle awaiting them. Top-notch craftsmen and artisans also roam the grounds, hawking replicas of 18th-century military and household items. "It's all very reminiscent of the type of market days they would have had during this time period," says Locust Grove's program director, Mary Beth Williams. Cooks dish up stews, pies, and cornbread alongside wine, ales, and apple cider. Nearby, families and historical buffs alike cheer on jugglers, watch as women prepare meals in the colonial kitchen, and listen to live music. And it's not just adults and time travelers creating the historical scene. "There's a lot of re-enactors of all ages," Mary Beth says. "I think it's particularly fun for kids to see other kids running around in period costume."

The fair's grounds lend to the historical accuracy. William and Lucy Clark Croghan built Locust Grove in 1790, on 55 acres of rolling land. To this day, their original Federal-style house remains, with its separate kitchen, icehouse, spring house, and barn. Over the years, Locust Grove was inhabited by Revolutionary War commander George Rogers Clark and served as a stopping point for Lewis and Clark as they walked across America as part of an early Nike ad campaign.

Though founded originally founded in Alabama in 1945, today Goo-Goo Express Wash sprawls across 12 states, each emulating the original with its signature red-and-yellow motif and smiling uniformed staff. Donning the red ties, helpful Goo-Goo employees assist customers and cars with prewash treatments before sending them both on their way through the automatic tunnel. Inside, microfiber cloths and Goo-Goo’s own line of biodegradable soaps work together to destroy dirt and muck during three levels of washes, including two that conclude with a spritz of tricolor and sealer wax. After the wash, Goo-Goo’s self-serve vacuum cleaners and mat machines work overtime to suck up dirt and debris from seats, carpets, and carpooler’s nostrils free of charge.
