Elkins Chevrolet is a restorative oasis in the desert of automotive disrepair, housing experienced service technicians willing to sully their hands replacing up to five quarts of spent engine grease with a fresh batch of sable lubrication. Cars may employ dipsticks as straws, lapping up two oil changes over the course of a year, making today’s Groupon an ideal fit for two-car families or automobiles piloted by squeaky tin men. Customers may upgrade to synthetic, diesel, or imported olive oil for an additional fee.
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. They also offer extensive car wash and detailing treatments with options such as hand waxes and paint restoration. Dedicated to their customers, the team will even hand wash oversized autos at no extra cost.
The technicians at Mr. Tire maintain and repair more than three million cars a year, replenishing oil and rotating tires for sustained, smooth vehicle performance. During the oil change and tire rotation, technicians outfit autos with new oil filters and keep engines purring with up to five quarts of conventional oil. Mr. Tire’s technicians also inspect tires’ air- and peer-pressure levels, then rotate tires before bad influences can convince them to shoplift broken glass. A brake inspection acts as a reflex test for cars, keeping vehicles’ reaction times sharp.
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.
Race Track Auto Spa & Lube uses a soft-touch cleaning system to gently restore cars to their natural states of sparkle. During "The Works" washes ($20 each), high-speed matter transporters receive triple foam soapings, hand-towel pat downs and polishings, and clear coats of protective wax to seal in freshness. Floors and seats are vacuumed, the dashboard is wiped, windows are cleaned and defogged, and doorjambs are cleared of dirt and actual jam. Each wash includes an undercarriage wash and wheel treatment. Drivers on the go can pamper loyal speed wagons with an express wax, completed in 30 minutes or less ($29.95), with an added Rain-X windshield treatment ($5), which breaks up hostile sheets of precipitation into manageable, bite-sized water beads.
