Any good mechanics with experience on 3rd gen cars?

I recently moved to kitchener and am looking for a good mechanic, preferably one that has experience with camaro/firebirds and in the Kitchener area.

I took my car to a mechanic in brampton to get it certified, and the idiot lifted my car from the front fenders and crushed them both. The odd thing is the owner of the shop has an 89 trans am in mint condition himself, so I thought this would be a good place.....It obviously wasn't!

Damn. Sorry to hear that man. There is a guy who has a kijiji ad right now as a TPI specialist. The ad # is 1287626031. He is located in Mississauga which is a stone throw from you. I did get his number for future reference. His name is Dan. This is NOT a referral. I have not used him. If you end up using him, let me know how he is.
