Cars roll away from the checkered exterior of East Gate Car Wash & Lube Center renewed by the shop’s wash, detailing, and maintenance services. Washes rinse away recently acquired roadway gunk with paint-safe soaps, while applications of sealant and rust protector guard cars from long-term damage. To restore vehicles' health without feeding them an apple every day, technicians swap old oil for new in the facility’s garage, the same place they perform routine maintenance on tires, tweak engines systems, and regulate fluids. An onsite lounge placates waiting patrons with cups of complimentary coffee and a convenience store stocked with snacks, drinks, cards, and car products.
Finish Line 38's ASE-certified techs lube and oil autos and mend worn-down vehicles with repair services.

With 31 years in the abracadabra arts, The Magic Shop stocks a plethora of items for beginners of all ages, seasoned sorcerers, and hobbyists. Choose from more than 850 magic tricks, such as Nickels to Dimes ($12.50), a feat that turns nickels into dimes via a instruction-explained device and a few minutes of practice, or the Magic Coloring Book ($12.50), which, like a new highway overpass, initially appears blank but then magically fills up with drawings. Other baubles on hand include stage illusions and bar tricks.
Brake-O-Rama began as one location in 1949 but now boasts 14 service centers speckled across the East Coast. Together these automotive hospitals work as a force, repairing and maintaining domestic and imported vehicles of virtually any make and model. Before sourcing spare parts from the company's private warehouses, Brake-O-Rama's ASE-certified technicians thoroughly analyze vehicles with advanced diagnostic technology that includes four-wheel computerized alignment systems, electron microscopes that scan for chipped paint finishes, and magnifying glasses ever in search for clues to Professor Plum's murder. Meanwhile, Firestone, Goodyear, and Michelin tires fill the supply closets, allowing the patrons to tighten their grip on the asphalt before a cross-country trip.
Blow-drying is a staple at salons, but at Black Tie Auto Detailing, the pampering salon treatment is reserved for your car. After meticulous hand washes—which include tire dressing, window cleaning, and even interior vacuuming—technicians blow-dry exteriors, then rub them down with scratch-free chamois cloths. The detailing company’s team also specializes in high-end and classic cars, and blow-drying is just one of the luxury treatments they use to beautify them and other vehicles; they also steam-clean upholstery and rub down exteriors with clay bars, rather than with massages that would be entirely lost on the vehicles.
The team of ASE-certified technicians at Millevoi's Tire & Service Center keeps horseless chariots stopping and going smoothly with a bevy of auto-care services. Cars delivered into the hands of the AAA-approved auto-repair center can swap out their soiled motor oil for up to 5 quarts of standard engine juice freshly squeezed from mechanical grapefruits. During the same visit, the staff can also rotate tires, lubricate the chassis, install new oil filters, and run through a 30-point safety inspection. An air-conditioning system check ensures the car's air vents are exhaling heartily, and a new pair of wiper blades helps to maintain windshield transparency while cars drive through rain or crash slip 'n' slide tournaments. Scheduled maintenance packages and computerized wheel alignments impart peace of mind, which the auto shop augments with a 36-month/36,000-mile warranty on parts and labor. The facility's waiting lounge features coffee, TV, and newspapers to entertain owners as they wait for their vehicles to roll out of the shop all patched up and ready to drive into the immediate future.
