The damn thing won't start. Now a quick trip into CVS for a new toothbrush has turned into a two-hour wait for a tow. If you have any luck left today, Tim from Recovery Tow will roll up, drag your broke-ass car onto his wrecker, and whisk you across the Heart of America Bridge to Northtown Auto Service, where since 1975, Ted and Russell Phillips have been fixing what ails your ride. If it's a Sunday, drop a note and your key in the box and you'll get a call the next day with an update. Of course, they explain what they're doing — and how much it's gonna cost — before they start cranking. But they work fast. In less than 24 hours, they'll crack the mystery of the nonstarting car and have it back to you at a fair price.
