Hi all,

Does any know of a small garage in upstate NY (Plattsburgh or so) or upstate VT (Rouse point).

I just bought shocks from the tire rack, shipped in NY state, and would like to have them installed locally before re-entering Canada.

Thanks,

JP

Craigs VW, just outside Burlington.

Great guy. Honest and a VW fanatic. Many Westys on his lot.

Thanks Cheek.

I did find this one, you mentioned it before. I was wondering if there was anyone else on the other side.
Worst case, I'll just take the boat and visit around. Supposed to be nice.

I second Craigs and or Eurotech, both good shops in Burlington area. While you wait service, call Vermont Tire on Williston Road.

If you look for parts, like Mark wrote, go see John Hamill at John's Car Corner in Westminster. His garage is like a museum and there's a lot of parts for vanagon even for syncro.

Do you get the "have you had any work done on your car?" questions upon reentry?

I did not use any of them yet. I might not need.

If all goes well, I might simply have Ben Huot do all the work at the same place.
