I want to nominate T&C Shell on Mountain Avenue in Springfield because the owner, Terry, has been over 40 years since returning home from the Navy in the 1970's and has owned his own business for the past 31 years! He is an honest, hard working mechanic that has proven his excellence time and time again to the people of Springfield who rely upon his services daily.

I'll second the nomination of T&C Shell

Tomies on Mountain Avenue. Steve and Robert are honest, sincere, and hard-working

Jeff Pinkava, he's pricey but honest and does very good work.
Maggie Keffer June 28, 2012 at 04:19 PM
Jeff Pinkava on Morris Avenue, been going to him or his father for 40 years.

TC Shell is the best. Terry is honest and hard working. His prices are reasonable and he does great work. Always accommodating and looks out for his customers.

Pacifico Brothers on Morris Ave. Frank and Aldo are very professional, as well as great guys. They have also sold two of my cars, as they knew what kind of condition the cars were in.

I would definitely say T&C Shell. Terry is a great and honest person. My family and I have been going to him for years and that will never change.
Beth July 27, 2012 at 12:23 PM
Tomie gets my vote! Steven and Robert are the two most honest and hardworking mechanics I've ever met and they know how to get a job done!

There is no better mechanic in town than Terry at T & C shell. He's honest, reliable and his price is fair. - every thing you would want in an auto mechanic

T&C shell by far, my family have been loyal customers for years and terry is the most honest and best all around mechanic you,ll find in the area, small jobs or big they take care of it with the upmost pride in their work

I've been taking my cars to T&C Shell for over 10 years and my parents years before that. Terry and recently hired technician Matt make a great team at always the fairest prices in town from a simple tire plug to a rebuilt engine in my grandfathers truck. For gas and repairs hands down the best in town.
Joe Ragno August 08, 2012 at 12:23 PM
T & C, no question. Terry runs a great shop and Matt is the best young mechanic to come along in ages. They are accomodating and thye pricing is very fair. What more can you ask.
D. T. R. August 08, 2012 at 02:53 PM
T & C Shell mechanics - caring, reliable, fair and hardworking. Terry's shop gets my vote.

I third the nomination for T&C Shell. Terry runs one of the last of the truly "local" auto repair shops! He is Always packed with cars being worked on and puts in Very long days/weeks. His young 2nd Mechanic Matt is extremely professional as well and runs it just as Terry does. They "care about the people & the cars".
