Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
Torrance Car Wash pampers steel steeds with full service car washes or speedy express lanes that douse exteriors in grime-busting suds. During full-service washes, car owners relinquish their wheels to expert drivers who lead cars through an intense bath before toweling them dry, making hoods sparkle like they had been bathed in fairy dust and dried by a million fluttering butterfly wings. Next techs vacuum interiors, dust dashboards and consoles, and clean wheels, topping off the car’s spa day with a polish wax and clear protectant.
Machines are good at a lot of things—making calculations, building robots, spitting out candy in exchange for money—but when it comes to a car wash, nuts and bolts just aren't as precise as the human touch. At South Bay Auto Spa, every wash gets personal attention as technicians clean and dry vehicles to perfection. To top off a wash well done, they add Armor All tire protection, do waxing, and vacuum debris from interiors.
