The detailing technicians at Unique's Auto Care LLC don't stop at making vehicles clean. As certified perfectionists, they want rides to look show-room new. That's why they work their sponges by hand, manually rooting out grime and buildup from vehicles' nethermost nooks. Then they apply goodly coats of carnauba wax and buff paint until autos sparkle like a disco ball's earrings. Their interior detailing is equally meticulous?they wipe down consoles, shampoo upholstery, and vanquish odors with ozone treatments.

Pilot Coach Aviation tutors cloud-seeking students in basic principles and essential skills necessary to safely pilot a personal aircraft. During two-hour introductory flight lessons, a certified master and FAA Gold Seal instructor leads amateur aviators through fundamental mechanics on the ground before spending 40 minutes of flight time counting shingles on local houses and harvesting clouds for their cotton-candy cores. Practicing pilots work with flight simulators to learn basic instrument readings, flight principles, aircraft safety, and equipment functions before taking off. After their instruction, wind walkers receive a student logbook, a commemorative 5"x7" photo, and a DVD of their flight to edit themselves into tense scenes from Passenger 57.

As auto owners initiate custom scrub-downs in Xtreme Kleen Car Wash's five self-service bays, roadsters surrender to three levels of five-minute mechanical washing in one of two automatic bays. The Super Basic wash, Ultimate wash, and Xtreme wash all commence with a presoak that blasts away bug residue and dust-doodled composite sketches of impolite hitchhikers before machines scrub undercarriages and exteriors to a dry, spot-free shine. An Ultimate wash adds in hot wax and a double pass of blow-drying, and Xtreme washes run the full gamut of amenities, including a triple-foam wax conditioner and a sheer coat of protection against attacks from the elements or disgruntled former chauffeurs who were displaced by cruise control.
