Prime Shine greets ragged road-huggers with a precursory prewash before leading them into an all-cloth cleaning stable where experienced technicians tenderly groom horseless buggies. A nonacidic wash works to dispense with gunk and grime from all auto parts, from besmirched bumpers to unclean underbellies. Next, motor wagons are sprayed with a cleansing, perfumed polish, then coated in an invisible shield of silicone to seal in a glossy luster. Rain-X protectant bonds to every inch of exterior to make cars impervious to water, bugs, and bug-shaped water balloons. Finally, after a 120-horsepower blow dry, mechanical beasts are ready to shake manes and roar away. The Protex car wash takes only about three minutes from start to finish, and customers can use self-service vacuums to put any finishing touches on rejuvenated rides.

Driving a vehicle that exceeds emission limits is not only illegal, but it also contributes to the already alarming amount of pollution coughing its way out of cars. The ASE-certified master technicians at Stanislaus Smog help solve this two-pronged problem with professional smog tests to keep emissions at bay. The team clamps monitoring devices to tail pipes of all types of vehicles, including gross polluters and out-of-state rides, checking not only for the amount of emissions, but also the types of pollutants. Once complete, the technicians can either approve autos for DMV renewals, title transfers, and soccer-team tryouts, or send them off to a repair shop to prepare for a second test attempt.
