I'd like to thank the folks at Dewey, Cheatham and Howe for recommending Cacamo's Auto Repair. This mechanic at 2205 Bienville Street really lived up the reviews.
We needed a mechanic for car repairs rather than the motorcycle variety. One bump too many on New Orleans' atrocious roads broke the spring supporting the front passenger side of the car. Allen, the owner, wasn't satisfied with the price of a pair of new springs so he called around for a complete spring and strut combination and even did something to the axle. It's not my car so I wasn't really listening. The owner though paid attention throughout and she is thoroughly satisfied.
When we were departing the shop Allen asked, "So from where up north did you bring this car? It's so rusty underneath it had to have been driven where they salt the roads." Good eye, Allen. We admitted the car came from Boston.
