Please use this thread to post any shops you have had excellent dealings with in the regional area in the past and you would recommend to anyone needing work done. Please remember this is not a "don't go here" thread....any thing like will be removed.

I'll go first.

Anyone in the MD/DE area that need machine work done, I HIGHLY recommend Kunkels Auto Center. They are a regional auto supply store with a centralized machine shop in Bel Air, MD. You go to any of their stores and they will send your items to the machine shop, do the work, and then ship it back to the local store for you.

They do Excellent, fast, reliable work. I had them do axle bearings for me and it took a few hours to send it to the shop and get them back.

I had them to my entire block for me recently, which some of you may remember, and they did I nice job. Their strongest point is head work IMO. Brain there did a top notch job Porting, polishing, 3 angle valve job, machining for scew in studs, setting the springs, etc.

Awsome ppl, I think they are the best transmission shop ever. I've had a few of their transmissions in past cars and have had nothing but excellent performance out of them, Though you doo pay a premium for it.. I think this says it all "C4 SUPER COMP TRANSMISSIONS GUARANTEED FOREVER & FREE "FRESHEN-UPS" FOR LIFE!"

I am new to the southern Virginia (Norfolk/Va Beach) area. Anyone know of a place near here where I could get a 351 Cleveland rebuilt? I can get the car to the place someone posted in PA, but if there's a good shop closer, I would prefer to haul less distance.

KUnkels machine shop did a great job on my motor.....can you pull your motor out and take it to a place? If so, Bel-air is closer than PA and I think they have shops in Baltimore.

Keller Truck Service in Frederick. They did work on my driveshaft (weld on new yoke and, and put on new u-joint). They are very friendly, do a great job at a very good price.

Is Kunkels a Virginia shop, or up near Bel Air? I need the engine compartment worked on as well, so I would trailer the car wherever. Appreciate the help so far from everyone.

Kunkels is a machine shop....the main base is in Bel Air.
They won't work on your car...you pull the motor and take it them or one of their many store locations in and around MD and DE (I beleive they have a few Baltimore locations)

They rebuilt my 9" rear, built my driveshaft, and have been a great resource for this project.
