Personal Touch Custom Auto's owner, Ron Sanders, started detailing cars at the age of 19, and he still enjoys the work as much as he did back in his community-college days. Though he handles the operations of the shop, you won't find Ron sitting behind a desk—he gets his hands dirty right alongside his crew. During detailing treatments, he and his technicians gently hand-wash cars before slathering them in coats of wax and carnauba-sealant applications to protect paint. They also employ their expertise to install audio equipment, patch dents, and wrap auto glass in quality scratch-resistant films that guard auto interiors from 98% of UV rays, lingering heat, and direct eye contact with strangers.
Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year. These cards come loaded with all kinds of prepaid services, including at least three full-service oil changes with up to 5 quarts of oil, lube, and a new filter. Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
The roots of Hunt Valley Motor Coach's family tree spring from two buses. In 1985, Edward Royston only had a pair of vehicles to his name, and a mission to make the traveling process a highlight of his clients' vacations. His fleet soon grew to 11 buses, and more still when the company joined with Gunther Charters, a business known for its memorable package tours. Today, Edward's emphasis on personality prevails at every step of the booking process, from online or phone conversations with the small sales team—where Gunther Charters founders Marty and Laurie Gunther still field calls—to greetings from each jovial driver.
From its Baltimore base, the company plans convenient round trips and tours to a variety of locales. Its daylong jaunts to Atlantic City deposit riders at the casinos and boardwalk, and excursions to New York launch days full of seasonal shopping and sightseeing. Thanks to locked and guarded storage, passengers are even encouraged to leave their laptops and other bulky possessions on the bus during their daylong excursions.
Themed tours ferry passengers to states such as Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, and Tennessee for overnight stays and guided explorations of local sites. The New Orleans tour, for example, leads groups through historic cemeteries and the botanical garden, and a holiday tour of Newport mansions showcases the intricate decorations and reindeer butlers of three resplendent homes.
The Dark Side's passionate staff dims windows with Madico films that can block out up to 99.9% of UV light, preventing interior sun damage and boosting riders' privacy. During the two-hour process, the tint techie first cuts and heat-molds the adhesive film to fit each window, then squeegees it into place until it is as smooth as an obsidian statue dipped in motor oil. Car parents can choose from a range of shades and visible light transmission levels for their particular stylistic and practical needs, such as hiding their mid-commute pedicure from passing motorists.
At the AAA–approved facilities, mechanics attend to vehicles with all the skill and understanding you'd expect from ASE–certified technicians. Versed in every make and model of car out there, they dive underneath hoods and reinvigorate autos with Interstate batteries and products from BG Products Inc., repairing anything that's broken and slapping down a 24-month, 24,000-mile warranty. This castle of car care doubles as a state-certified emissions-inspection facility, and their shuttle treats auto owners to free rides whenever it's not busy rescuing helpless jalopies from junkyards.
Just as the body is one big system comprised of many individual elements, Fidel Chiropractic Center's health-bolstering organization aids its patients through the work of a team. Founded in 1987 by chiropractors Adam and Ilene Fidel, the team consists of an acupuncturist, several massage therapists and chiropractic assistants, a personal trainer and fitness instructor, and three chiropractors—the Fidels and Cheryl Kalb, who joined the founders more than a decade ago.
