New to Seattle, looking for a shop

Hello! I'm fairly new to Seattle and looking forward to coming to any meetings and meet-ups this year. I have a 1962 Mercury Comet that I've had for 23 years. And yet I'm not mechanically inclined so I'm looking for a shop--any recommendations? I'm on the south side of town.
I had a great shop in Portland, but that's too far to take it to now.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations and looking forward to seeing some of you soon.

Hi Noelle, welcome to the best falcon comet site around. Lots of good guys and gals on here and I'm sure you'll get a good answer to your question. I live over in Sequim so I'm not much help as far as shops over in Seattle area.
Hope to meet all you new people at an event soon.

Hello Noelle and welcome!

Wish I could help you with a shop, but since I do all my own work (as most here do), knowing a good club is almost better than knowing a good shop. Sometimes, anyway. I know of a club member up north of Seattle who uses a shop in Everett for some work he's not wanting to do. I'll let him recommend it if he thinks it's a good shop. Others, I'm sure, will ring-in here, but again, welcome.

Noelle,
Like Roger said, most of us here tend to do most of their own work, particularly on their project cars. However, I do have a shop that i will recommend. This recommendation comes only because I trust him to be honest. I have taken cars to him over the years and requested a particular service to be performed, to find that the service was not performed (or charged) because the described problem could not be confirmed by him. Anyway, his shop is "Startup's Foreign Car Repair" (Jim Startup) on Everett Mall Way. Please be aware that he is verbally crude at times. Don't let that turn you off.

He's probably only like that around you, Gene.

You might think that when discussing it, but I've been witness to his crudity to others, ladies included.

Thanks, everyone. I'll look into Startup's but continue to look for something on the south end, too. I'm glad to be a part of this group!

Noelle,

I forgot about this until you mentioned south end. I've never used them, but have friends who have used them with high praise for the way they were treated.
