Wash Me Fast recycles as much water as possible to conserve resources, and uses only biodegradable soaps and oil-free polishes and sealers. So duck in for a quick car cleaning on your way to a last-minute date or during a quick pit stop to brush away the mud during this year’s scavenger hunt.

At Tuffy's, motor-vehicle caregivers spruce up patrons' horseless carriages and prepare them for a new season of dutiful service. After installing a new oil filter, auto artisans remove the old sludgy glop clogging the car's arterial system and replace it with up to five quarts of 5W-30 or 5W-20 conventional motor oil (a $31.99 value; diesel or synthetic oil costs extra). The staff will also rotate tires to prepare four-wheeled wonders for safe gliding (a $12 value) and perform an inspection to make sure air-conditioning systems are functioning properly to bring riders to the brink of coolness faster than Fonzie’s leather jacket ($9.99). Finally, a pair of fresh wiper blades (up to 22")—grown locally by organic-blade farmers—supplants worn-out window-rubbers ($22) and a specialist conducts an extensive 41-point maintenance inspection.
Growing up in New York City, Vinny Rodriguez spent a lot of time jetting down the streets of Spanish Harlem on his dirt bike and ATV—joy rides that would foreshadow his future profession. Vinny eventually channeled his love of riding into a profession by completing his motorcycle mechanic's certification and opening Vinny's Garage. To this day it doesn't feel like a job to him. "This garage is more of my lifestyle than it is a business," he says, evincing an ethos that prioritizes making new riding buddies over making a quick buck.
