Tony Pasta at Pastas Garage in Beltsville does excellent mechanical work on classic cars and he has always been honest and fair IMO.

Fancy Colours in Clinton did decent body work on my Fastback. They are slow, but the price was right for a nice paint job on my previous driver that was hit.

I guess that is one area where I am lucky. I do not have the experience with cars necessary to restore one, but fortunatly for me I have a few friends who do. Also if you check the post at the top about the "MAC Projects" you will see that there are actually quite a few local VMF'rs that are willing to help out. I do not specifically know of any restoration shops, but a Google search turned up this one in Springfield. I do not know anything about them though and they do not have a web site.

For bodywork, I would highly recommend Performance Auto Body in Manassas Park. I have had a few cars repaired there after accidents, and they also repainted my Grand Cherokee when it was a week old due to bad paint from the factory and it turned out great. There are usally at least a couple classics and hot rods there being done at any time.

This wasn't specifically mentioned in the topic, but ...

Exhausts -

Roberts Custom Exhaust LLC
847 Highams Ct, Woodbridge, VA 22191
(703) 492-4654

Robert's is a one-man operation, open Mon-Thur only, and you have to make appointments well in advance of when you want something done (i.e. 1-2 month waiting list), but there's a reason he has that many customers -- he's been doing this for probably 20 years and he's the best I've ever been to. Bar none. Did the work on both my muscle cars and my '04 F-150.

For rust repair in Central Virginia try J & J Mustang Restoration. The owners name is Jack Sharp his number is 540 894 4810. His specialty is rust repair. He doesn't do any paint or mud work. His work is top notch.

I've got two great experiences with shops in the Northern Virginia Area.

Robert's Custom Exhaust has already been mentioned. My own experience with Robert was great. Highly recommended in my book.

Ted Britt Ford. Bought my '66 in March, and then discovered the spacer plate between the engine and bell housing had not been installed. This is a 351W in a '66 so it is nowhere near factory. Ted Britt has a couple of senior mechanics with vintage mustang experience willing to do the work. They seemed a litle uneasy about finding the parts, so I took that on. Asked them to put in an alterstart mini starter at the same time. Once the parts were my problem they were eager to work on a vintage car. Great job, quick turn-around and reasonable price.mo

R&J automotive in Fredericksburg, VA is a good place to have work done. I had floors and doors replaced here and the work was top notch. Price was fair. Chuck Tyler is the owner. Does quality work. He specializes in early mustang restoration.

I like Ralph Evans at E&G Bodyshop in White Marsh ( Northeastern Baltimore County). I've known him for about 20 years, and he's done a LOT of mustangs. (410) 335-5566 is his number. He recently declined restoring a 72 convertible that I asked him about - said he's not doing 71-73's anymore. Prefers 65-68. Tell him Greg Purdy sent ya!
