No matter how dirty cars are when they enter a Russell Fischer Car Care Center, they always leave looking clean enough to sneak into a showroom or Jay Leno's daydreams. Each facility offers washes that see technicians tending to every speck and smudge by hand as well as with assistance from air guns, high pressure chemical wheel cleaners, and shampoos. Services include basic and premier washes in addition to advanced details, which include clay bars, waxes, and shampoos that coax dirt from the inside and out to give vehicles a shiny new look. The facilities also offer oil changes and maintenance services to ensure the car's performance is on par with its appearance.

First String Sportfishing sails the open seas off of Southern California, taking passengers on both fishing voyages and educational marine tours. Its largest boat, First String, can hold up to 149 people for its whale-watching tours. On board the 93-foot boat, you’ll find two 9-ton fish holds, two radars, a large-screen television, and a dolphin-to-English dictionary. First String Sportfishing’s other boats depart for both Californian and Mexican waters on fishing excursions. These trips typically yield shallow-water rockfish such as Sculpin and Whitefish and larger varieties including yellowtail and barracuda.

Big O Tires outfits wheels with tires from Michelin, Goodyear and other trusted brands–including their own Big O brand tires that are backed by a three-year warranty and a lifetime of rotations. The retailer has been in the road-ready rubber trade since 1962, when it began as a single co-op; over the past five decades, it has blossomed into a network of more than 480 locations, spanning 20 states. The shops’ ASE-certified technicians not only specialize in tires, but also tend autos with a comprehensive array of repair and maintenance services. They deftly change oil, replace brakes, and meticulously administer multi-point inspections, which ensure that headlights work and that wiper blades aren’t actually sleeping rattlesnakes.
