Peter(owner) and Tony(right hand man) are the best. They are very honest and always stick to their estimates. If something goes wrong they fix it themselves rather than blame it on some sort of 'pre-existing condition'. They never charge us for little things. My friend Nicky and I (both of us are girls) have been going there for years and they have always treated us great. Even when we both moved farther away we still go there. Just a caveat, Peter can be very grumpy - he is not polite in the traditional way - he is a cranky old guy but very sweet. He always remembers work done on your car and is very fatherly with his advice. He always tells Nicky to not eat so much candy or her teeth will fall out and he keeps up on our adventures and misadventures. The shop doesn't look like much, no fancy waiting room or anything but Peter has a beautiful vegetable garden growing in the back.

My family and I have taken our cars to Peter for over 20 years. This guy is a gem. He is a dear man, exceedingly honest and open and on the rare occasions when something hasn't been fixed properly the first time he responds promptly and efficiently. His prices are fair and his customers loyal. I only purchase cars of the type that Peter works on. Trust in dentists, surgeons, psychiatrists come and go; Peter is forever and irreplaceable. Bring him a good cigar. A.W.

He is an "oldies but goodies"! Honest guy that prefer to make his money steady and constant, other are "one night stand" :)) I like to keep more shop like this in business. D.S.

Straightforward, no frills, they seem very knowledgeable and they are nice. Reasonably priced.

Peter's provided great service. Not only did they finish the job in one day, they charged significantly less than the dealer. Peter also informed me of another potential repair that I should consider (again, far cheaper than the dealer). Ever since they made my repairs, I haven't experienced any problems in that area.
