Default Our Annual List Of Where To Get Your Corvette Fixed

Our Annual List Of Where To Get Your Corvette Fixed
AS IN past years, we again present you with our annual list of top Corvette shops you can trust. This list has been one of the most requested (and used) components of Corvette Fever for several years now. But it isn't really our list-it's yours. We have compiled your recommendations over the last year into a directory we hope you'll refer to again and again. This newly updated directory will also be posted on our Web site, www.corvettefever.com. Since we published our original list of your favorite Corvette shops five years ago, your recommendations have continued to come in. These Corvette businesses range from full-blown restoration shops to places you can go to for routine maintenance. This year, some new shops have been added, along with the sender's comments so the list has changed some since last year.
As in the past, this directory will continue to be a work in progress. Please send your shop suggestions (or unresolved issues) to corvettefever.firstturn@primedia.com. Please include your name and location, as well as the name, address, phone number, and owner's name of the shop you recommend. Tell us why the shop deserves to be on the list for next year, or any problems you have encountered. As in the past, you can also nominate more than one shop if you've received exceptional service at several places.
Please note: All shops listed here have been recommended by fellow Corvette enthusiasts. Based on their experiences, these businesses should be trustworthy, but Corvette Fever accepts no responsibility or liability for any work they do. We will, however, continue to accept all information about unresolved problems our readers have and reserve the right to remove repeat offenders from the list.

"The shop owner is Tom Evans, and he is a NCRS certified judge. He does all the work himself and only has a couple of part-time guys helping him, so your car gets individual attention from the owner. He is meticulous-a fanatic who ensures the job is done right. He does his own paint and did a fantastic paint job on his custom C5 that he drives daily. He restores all Corvettes from '53 to present and has done some very high-dollar big-block cars from the '60s. He is currently building a '71 convertible (frame-off) for me and his attention to detail is astounding." -TOM BURGESS

Extremely knowledgeable, all work is priced well and guaranteed and, most important, you can trust this shop." -CHRIS NOVINGER
