Motorists can treat their hacking and wheezing motorcar to a trio of oil changes at eOilChange.com's participating auto shops. During each 30-minute service, skilled technicians replace used motor oil with up to 6 quarts of standard engine juice and install a new oil filter to ensure vehicles' veins pump clean, contaminant-free oil. Most autos are welcome, save trucks that weigh more than one ton, and all three services must be performed on the same vehicle. Drivers have 365 days to use all three oil changes at a single location, which means cars won't need to suck fresh oil from vulnerable pump jacks for at least a year.
From the outside, the buses at Five Star Transportation Services exude class and restraint. The inside, however, presents a different story. From the neon green lights overhead to the checkerboard floors underfoot, the ambiance here is decidedly reminiscent of a dance club—the perfect setting for bachelor parties and group nights on the town.
Because the club scene may not be appropriate for many trips—such as airport transfers or weddings—Five Star Transportation has a number of more reserved vehicles in its fleet as well. These include 4-passenger town cars, 7-passenger vans, and 10-passenger stretch limousines, each of which drop passengers off at their destinations in class and style.
First String Sportfishing sails the open seas off of Southern California, taking passengers on both fishing voyages and educational marine tours. Its largest boat, First String, can hold up to 149 people for its whale-watching tours. On board the 93-foot boat, you’ll find two 9-ton fish holds, two radars, a large-screen television, and a dolphin-to-English dictionary. First String Sportfishing’s other boats depart for both Californian and Mexican waters on fishing excursions. These trips typically yield shallow-water rockfish such as Sculpin and Whitefish and larger varieties including yellowtail and barracuda.

In the cerulean blue waters around Mission Beach, jet-powered craft cut through the waves. Affordable Jet Ski's staff members set customers loose at the helm of a three-seat, 1,100cc Yamaha VX 110, a four-seat, 1,200cc Yamaha SUV, or a Sea Doo jet ski—which enables its pilot to ride standing for higher visibility or sitting to dodge low-flying UFOs. They also supply jet boats, whose 270-horsepower twin engines propel drivers and six passengers through the water. Staffers ensure that all their customers can reach the water by providing a tow vehicle with each rental, and can also lead tours of the area for those unfamiliar with its waters.
