With a big yellow sign spanning its entire garage, Honest Auto Repair is nearly impossible to miss. As drivers pull into the shop, they’re greeted by manager Abe J. who calls upon more than 20 years of experience to lead his team as they swap out old oil for new, tune up rides, and put systems through thorough safety inspections. The car-care pros also check engine lights and brakes, usually delivering rides back to their human keepers with same-day service.
No job is too big for the team at Time To Shine Automotive Detail Specialist—they extend their services to vehicles as large as limos, RVs, aircraft, and pool floats shaped like planes.

To further convenience clients, they offer mobile detailing, as well as pickup and drop-off services.

Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson makes motorcycle pipe dreams come true with its stock of glistening hogs and Harley Davidson–certified instructors, who teach new riders the ins and outs of navigating the road. A far cry from Stockton’s first Harley-Davidson dealership, which was opened by Soapy Sudmyer in the 1930s, Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson has changed hands numerous times in the last 80 years, finally coming to rest in the paws of Terry Davis, who relocated the dealership to its current 46,000-square-foot facility. Here, hundreds of motorcycles, racks of clothing, and a parts department coexist in a winery-themed complex where massive wooden eagles overlook the showroom. Technicians swap out oil and repair broken parts in 14 service bays, and Buell Blast practice bikes help riders learn the rules of the road during extensive five-day training courses.
