The dedicated staff at Auto Shine Carwash spends its days ensuring that every car and truck that visits its lot rolls away looking like it did the day it emerged from the assembly line. The full-service car wash's fearless scrubbers descend upon scarily begrimed vehicles, gussying up their interiors and exteriors with meticulous cleansing services and packages. With soft cloths in tow, the auto aficionados peel away layers of dirt that accumulate after hours spent on the road or driving through ant-farm collections. Their mighty vacuums roar while collecting crumbs strewn about interiors, paving the way for a more thorough wipe down. Careful to leave no area untouched, staffers can also cleanse greasy doorjambs and buff windows into a state of perfect pellucidity.
Vehicles of every kind scoot into CarSpa for one of four wash and detailing services performed by a skillful, five-person staff with more than half a century of combined experience. Whether they’re just dropping by for a basic hand wash or sticking around for a full bumper-to-bumper overhaul, all visiting cars are treated to a full interior vacuuming—including the trunk—and a thorough cleaning of their windows and tires. While autos enjoy their spa day, owners can kick back and have a drink at nearby Crystal Beer Parlor or wander the historic district to collect autographs from Savannah’s most famous ghosts.
The coaching staff at D1?which is co-owned by professional athletes such as NFL player Peyton Manning, MLB player Chipper Jones, and NFL player Philip Rivers?refuses to discriminate between professional athletes and everyday exercisers. They scale the strength-and-cardio workouts of their group boot-camp classes and one-on-one intensive courses to individual abilities, bringing out the best in each student regardless of his or her workout history.
The typical D1 gym houses modern indoor turf fields with adjoining weight rooms, giving instructors the space to invent expansive obstacle courses that may require students to lift tires or tug 747s. In the boot-camp program, coaches meet with students one-on-one to discuss progress and find ways to improve. Each facility also houses a sports-therapy clinic, where expert therapists ease muscle injuries through rehabilitation programs and strength-restoring exercises.
Royal Bike Taxi maintains a fleet of bright-yellow pedicabs that can be commissioned to transport patrons on everyday errands or herald in a special event. Licensed, iron-calved drivers pick up patrons from any metro-Savannah location and respond to summonses by curbside hail, phone, or singing telegram from an Elvis impersonator. They can convey pairs to any nearby location, from a wedding to a reception, or past historic downtown sites during photo safaris that include basic photography instruction. Throughout a trip, the three-wheeled cabs' safety belts and retractable black tops keep customers protected.
