Performance Plus Quick Lube's team of trained technicians is well-versed in the most common oil myths and uses that knowledge during regular oil changes to transform coughing engines into efficient, long-lasting, high-performance car-hearts. After expunging the contaminated sludge from the engine’s crankcase, the Performance pit crew enlists up to five quarts of Quaker State Enhanced Durability synthetic blend motor oil for a three-month (or 3,000-mile) tour of lubrication duty that eases piston pounding and traps engine dirt in suspended animation. Once they've installed a new oil filter, they'll top off the car's coolant, power steering fluid, and umbrella drink.

Graff Chevrolet kicks out the dirt passengers from cars, trucks, and SUVs of any make and model. Each vehicle’s five- to six-hour renaissance detail begins with an engine-bay bathing to blast away built-up grime. Vehicle exteriors are thoroughly washed and waxed before the doors are opened to treat interiors to a thorough vacuuming, followed by hot-water extraction on carpets and seats. Full transparency is returned to slurpee-splattered windows, and wheels and tires are scrubbed and shined until even chrome accessories genuflect in genuine admiration. Doorjambs are relieved from obstinate mudcakes, and stowaway dust bunnies are removed from the trunk until car and driver are at last joyously reunited.

For four decades, Buckley?s Mountainside Canoes has sent visitors paddling through the calm currents of the Chippewa River, winding through miles of natural forestland in Sylvan Solace, Deerfield, and Meridian Park. The river?s clear, unpolluted waters stretch before paddlers during trips that range anywhere from one to seven hours. Maintaining its longstanding tradition of keeping the river clean, Buckley?s equips paddlers with debris bags so they can snag rubbish along the way, if they choose.
