Spider Auto Glass erases the crystalline webbing that forms when windshields crack and break. Its technicians can repair small cracks or?if they are beyond repair?replace whole windshields. But their glass work extends all the way around the car. They replace sunroofs, side- and rear-view mirrors, and power windows, as well as diagnosing other window-related issues.
The experienced techs at AJ Auto Detailing have been revamping rides for 28 years with an array of detailing services. Using ultra-purified water, technicians wash exteriors by hand before slathering painted surfaces with industry-standard polymer sealers and carnauba wax. They also eradicate oxidization, perform complete interior details, and steam clean engines to remove grease, oil, and any carrots lingering from the car's last collision with a produce stand.
For half a century, car lovers have souped up their engines and spruced up their auto bodies at Goodies Speed Shop, putting their prized vehicles in the hands of seasoned mechanics and technicians. The garage traces its origins back to 1962, when founder Richard Guess began outfitting an up-and-coming racing community enamored with the compact size and roaring horsepower of hot rods.
Today, the speed shop enhances engines of all sizes and types with exhaust systems, programmer modules, and suspensions from more than 150 brands. Dyno-pull services and laser wheel alignments keep rides running fast and true, while routine maintenance, tire rotations, and oil changes guard against expensive future overhauls. Those without a racer of their own can take a Mustang GT for a spin on a professional racetrack, and even learn the basics of car control, passing protocols, and wearing giant cola logos from pro driver Perry Richardson.
At The Car Spa, detailers use soft cloths, hand waxes, and shampoo to bring soiled vehicles back to a shiny state. Their sole focus is to remove interior and exterior filth, whether it’s a coffee spill soiling the carpet or a smudge of road grime tainting the finish. They target everyday wear with wash packages that include soft-cloth washes and a clear coat.
More advanced blemishes can be undone with a detail package; treatments such as buffing, polishing, and leather conditioning rekindle the car’s original glow and make it proud to roll down the assembly line at its 10-year factory reunion.
The staff at Vickers Auto Rental and Repair knows that most people don’t have a contingency plan for when their cars break down. So, rather than let their clients fend for themselves when disaster strikes, the team offers short- and long-term car rentals to keep clients rolling until their own wheels are back on the road. This level of customer service epitomizes all of Vickers’ repair services, whether techs are simply aligning wheels or overhauling the transmission. Technicians can fix a range of foreign and domestic makes and models, allowing them to tackle most vehicles that are brought in for repairs or that are left in the lot after the qualifying round of a monster-truck derby.
Vince Serio—detailing whiz and owner of Serio's Custom Detailing—works with a team of skilled detailers to bring dirty cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, RVs, and boats back to a state of cleanliness. His shop's services include à la carte treatments to help remove overspray, tar, and interior stains caused by carpooling with oil tycoons. Basic hand washes and waxes and clay-bar treatments give way to in-depth detailing sessions such as the Full Auto Transformation, which leaves even the filthiest of cars clean and shiny after about four hours of attention from Vince and company.
