Looking for bodyshop recommendation—Portland area


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I got hit from behind at a stoplight on Friday. Guy got out of his car, looked around, and decided he didn't want to stick around and drove off. I had the presence of mind to take some photos of him, his license plate, and his car before he split. Crumpled the rear quarter and cracked the, as far as I know, original paint.


Now I'm beginning the insurance process.


I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a shop specializing in our cars?

Not in Portland, but up near Seattle in Renton is American Auto. I'm taking mine there to get the nose clip replaced. They've done several 2002s over the years. Note that while they do good work, they are not a concourse type of restoration shop. High driver level cars is their specialty where there is good value to quality. 


If you decide to inquire, ask for Junior.

Thanks so much for the reco, @Teelinger

I'm interested in quality, but not concourse. I'll have to ask insurance about out of state repairs. 


If anyone has any local intel, I'd appreciate any leads.


Steve's Imports comes up in my google search as an option; a few 60/70s Porsches in the photos.
