An auto diagnostic center in Denver, Colorado, inspects cars before and after repairs. The center does no repairs itself. Instead, owners take their cars to dealerships, independent garages or service stations of their choice. Of more than 1500 cars a year brought in for rechecking after repairs were made, only one percent --just 15 cars-- were repaired to factory specifications.

INDIAN COUNTRY OF THE SOUTHWEST

Scattered across the high desert country of the Southwest-- hidden in its pine-scented chasms and tucked into cotton-wood-shaded riverbanks-- are the remains of North America's greatest Indian civilizations.
