Outfitting autos in Oklahoma for 40 years, Bob Moore keeps horse-less carriages running at a thoroughbred's pace with a wide range of buggy de-bugging services. Auto sprucing treatments commence by quenching thirsty tanks with a standard oil change, followed by a burst of tire-boosting nitrogen, which results in more uniform wear and better gas mileage than tires filled with heavy regret. Once greased and plump, cars get a multipoint probe to inspect batteries, belts, and breaks, and they get wiper blade and defroster checks. Heaters and hoses get equal scrutiny, and tapped antifreeze and other fluids are swiftly replenished. Once complete, the ASC-certified technicians send drivers on their way with an emergency-kit list that will come in handy in case of roadside breakdowns, or the occasional wrong turn into a rancor pit.
