Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.

Discount Auto's compact, understated building brims with sleek blue siding but little hint of the mechanical prowess waiting inside. A cache of shimmering chrome auto parts greets clients when they walk through the door. Dexterous mechanics grab these parts to fix jalopies or fine-tune squeaking engines until they hum three-part arias with fan belts and carburetors and the engine belt that most resembles Pavarotti’s beard.
The technicians at Custom Truck transform stock trucks and SUVs into roving extensions of drivers' personalities.

The extensive product list allows nearly any part of a vehicle to be swapped out for another model, from floor mats and seat covers to grilles and suspension systems.
