At Gary Wood Chrysler Dodge Jeep, a fleet of new and preowned vehicles awaits purchase in the showroom while busted cars, trucks, and SUVs of all types find healing in the service department. Master-certified Chrysler technicians fix whatever’s broken, confident in their training in diagnostic and repair techniques and the Chrysler company secret handshake. As mechanics protect pistons with infusions of new oil or overhaul engines with extensive repairs, a well-connected parts department ensures that vehicles receive top-shelf, original-manufacturer replacement parts.
Licensed and insured chauffeurs endure a stringent training and screening process before manning Ozarks Limo's fleet of town cars, passenger vans, party buses, and luxury stretch limos. Some of these vehicles are designed for partying—they feature elegant bars and plush furnishings that reflect the glow of neon lights, as well as sound systems powered by the love of rock 'n' roll. Others are meant for transporting passengers to and from the airport, or ensuring that clients get to their proms, weddings, and graduations. And if you've got a business function coming up, the chauffeurs can handle that, too, arriving promptly to ferry everyone from Point A to Point B.
Since 1967, Reliable Chevrolet has put patrons happily behind the wheels of brand-new Chevys and preowned vehicles and extended the lives of broken-down autos in its service shop. ASE-certified technicians keep cars, trucks, and SUVs shipshape and Bristol fashion while replacing parts, tuning up engines, repairing collision damage, conducting safety inspections, and explaining the etymology of "shipshape and Bristol fashion." In addition to filling cars with parts from Zak, ACDelco, and GM, Reliable Chevrolet reaches out to the community through events such as food drives and races for charity.
While traveling from place to place in the bright-yellow Jay’s Dee-Lux Taters food truck, cooks fry up hand-battered tenderloins, wings, and fresh-cut fries. The mobile eatery’s signature dish, Jay’s Dee-Lux Tater, challenges mouths with a mammoth amalgamation of battered and fried potato wedges sprinkled with cheese, chopped scallions, and other toppings. The food truck also doles out daily specials that change every day of the week except for Opposite Day; the specialties include homemade meatloaf, hand-battered fish ‘n’ chips, and tacos served with rice and beans.
Inspired by the same brainwaves as the Build-A-Bear Workshop, RIDEMAKERZ allows visitors construct a customized toy car from the axles up with dozens of options that add up to nearly 650 million unique combinations. Guests begin by choosing a body from a stock of Vipers, Corvettes, Mustangs, trucks, and hot rods that can then be accessorized with free stock parts or specialty chassis, tires, rims, and oil slicks. The hot-lava Chevy Camaro ($32) sports a metaphor for the rubber it plans to burn with orange flames on its sides, and the jewel-blue RZ Rascal body pairs its smooth curves with working headlights and taillights ($22). Sets of multicolored or racing slick tires maintain traction while pushed across carpets, hardwood floors, or up the sides of living-room furniture ($4 for two). Glistening hubcaps ($3–$4 for two), undercarriage-glow lighting ($10), and other car accessories offer further customization, while sound-effect chips ($3) relieve vocal cords strained by persistent engine imitations. Builders can also upgrade to a radio-controlled street chassis ($25) to assert hands-free control over the vehicle's movements.
A full-line Honda, Polaris, Suzuki, and Kawasaki dealer, Neosho Powersports' equips bikers and four-wheelers of every stripe with the gear necessary for successful two-wheeling.

Track and trail glove designs fuse with a pair of black, red, or blue Thor impact gloves ($39.95+) constructed with a light and flexible design for finger freedom and implementing tougher off-road features to keep knuckles scab-free when riders tear through cotton-candy forests. This Groupon may also be applied toward services such as a routine oil change and 13-point inspection ($99.99), essential for maintaining tip-top motor condition, or at least for keeping the oil pump from achieving zen-like oneness with itself.
