At Tuffy's, motor-vehicle caregivers spruce up patrons' horseless carriages and prepare them for a new season of dutiful service. After installing a new oil filter, auto artisans remove the old sludgy glop clogging the car's arterial system and replace it with up to five quarts of 5W-30 or 5W-20 conventional motor oil (a $31.99 value; diesel or synthetic oil costs extra). The staff will also rotate tires to prepare four-wheeled wonders for safe gliding (a $12 value) and perform an inspection to make sure air-conditioning systems are functioning properly to bring riders to the brink of coolness faster than Fonzie’s leather jacket ($9.99). Finally, a pair of fresh wiper blades (up to 22")—grown locally by organic-blade farmers—supplants worn-out window-rubbers ($22) and a specialist conducts an extensive 41-point maintenance inspection.

Happy Car Express Wash revives dingy roadsters with three-minute, high-pressure baths in automatic car-wash bays. Under the guidance of helpful attendants, customers steer vehicles into wide washing stations for a Hip & Happy bath complete with triple-foam polish, underbody scrub, and a stylish up-do. As customers sit in the dry comfort of their car, jets of pressurized water target caked-on grime on the car exterior, and a glaze of tire shine brings out each road donut's glossy midnight sheen and helps prevent cracking, fading, and hardening of the treaded rubber. After a windy pass under turbo dryers, autos can cruise over to one of 12 complimentary DIY vacuuming stations to cleanse interiors of crumbs before they spontaneously generate back into cognizant PB&Js.
