Bobby & Steve's Auto World repairs, maintains, and spruces up autos across eight Twin Cities locations, each decked out in vintage Coca Cola and Chevy memorabilia. On-site mechanics tackle all kinds of transportation-related jobs, from oil changes and flat tires to broken glass and sputtering exhaust pipes. The specialists can also tow your car, replace feeble batteries, and calmly persuade doors to open after extended lock-outs. At the detail shop, a team of highly trained reconditioning techs uses specialized tools to gussy up your car. They'll remove oxidation with orbital polishers or deep-clean carpets with hot water extractors. The shop also has an arsenal of more than 20 chemicals to treat all types of surfaces; enlist their help for vinyl and leather conditioners or Rain-X solution, which fends off stains due to precipitation or truck beds full of sports mascots with super soakers.

Dave Juntunen made his foray into the automotive industry in 1996 by working as a restoration technician for Kirk's Volkswagen—one of the largest facilities of its kind in the United States at the time. He started out with washing and waxing, but his detail-oriented personality prevented him from cutting any corners. Eventually, he progressed to exacting tasks such as paint correction, clear-coat restoration, and wet sanding. He also studied stain, scratch, dent, and paint technology.
With this knowledge, Dave started his own auto garage for exotic and European vehicles, which he dubbed Top Gear Autoworks. He later founded Twin Cities Detailing, where he and two other technicians primp elite chariots such as Lamborghinis, Mercedes, and ancient Roman quadrigas. They offer everything from basic details to in-depth sessions featuring clay-bar treatments, Menzerna products, and a three-step polishing process. When they aren't washing roadsters, Dave and his team repair upholstery, apply tinted window films, and decorate façades with pin striping to make autos look slim.
