Not one in Upton, but one in Uxbridge that lost my car's original clock. I think that was American Classic.

This is the place...
https://www.facebook.com/NewEnglandClassicCar

Met the owner, Greg. Good dude, shop is nice.

Long story short, the person currently doing work for my car is not going to be doing the work anymore. Need to find a new shop to fix my Roadrunner.
Needless to say, I am not a happy camper.

Any new shop recommendations are welcome. Thanks dudes.

New engine installed.
Engine wiring harness installed.
Exhaust re-installed.
New leaf springs, sure grip rear end installed in the existing 8-3/4 axle.
Install new rear sway bar.
Get her running and driving.

After I can driver her...
New Paint.
Interior work done. (gauges, door panels, floor, headliner installed)
Radio and speakers installed.

Once I have her running and driving, I will basically throw the kitchen sink at it.

To be honest, if I had a garage. I would buy a lift and do this all myself. But as it is now, I live in South Boston where there is no such thing! :)

The whole thing has become such a pain in the ass, I have money that I want to give to someone for these tasks. I just need someone to shut up and do the work. Not talk about doing the work.

Experience with them working on my car personally? No.

However, my grandfather lives in Grafton and the Upton Cruise Night is one of his regular hang outs.
The guy who runs New England Classic Car now runs the cruise night, and my grandfather has become friendly with him. He's the guy with the beard, I think his name is Greg, but I'm not positive.
One of my grandfather's best buddies sold him his 79 Mustang that had some issues last year and he got it running by the next morning. Seems like he knows what he's doing.

I've discussed some things about my wagon with him. I went to one of the Upton cruise nights in August and he had just fixed the Mustang and we talked about my car a bit.
He seemed like he knew what he was doing. My grandfather likes him and says he is a nice guy and I agree with his assessment. I would trust him to work on my car for the things you need.
