100 Corvette Shops You Can Trust 2006 Edition

Our annual list of the best 100 Corvette shops for the repair, sales, and buying of Corvettes

Corp_0605_100_shops_01_z 1/2

This month, we present you with our annual list of Corvette shops youcan trust. But as always, it isn't really our list--it's yours. We havecompiled your recommendations over the last year into a directory wehope you'll refer to again and again.

Since we published our first list of your favorite Corvette shops, yourrecommendations have continued to come in. These Corvette businessesrange from full-blown restoration shops to places you can go to forroutine maintenance. Unfortunately, some shops have gone out of businessor we can't locate them, so the list has changed some since last year.

As in the past, this directory will continue to be a work in progress.Send your suggestions anytime to corvettefever.firstturn@sourceinterlink.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 whythe shop deserves to be on the list for next year. Tell us problems youhave encountered. As in the past, you can also nominate more than oneshop if you've received exceptional service at several places.

A caveat: All shops have been recommended by fellow enthusiasts. Basedon their experiences, these businesses are trustworthy, but CorvetteFever accepts no responsibility or liability for any work they do. Wewill, however, accept information about unresolved problems our readershave, and reserve the right to remove repeat offenders from the list. Wehope the trend of receiving very few complaints from our readershipcontinues.
