Mechanic on MA North Shore?

I'd like to get my Spider fixed. It hasn't been driven in 2 years as I've been busy with a new baby (a human...not an auto) . My Spider was completely serviced two years ago at Glynn Motorsports. I called them to see if I could get an appointment and was soooo surprised to see that the shop is not up and running as it was before! Wow! Miss two years, miss a lot!! Anyway, Paul did call me back and said that he could probably squeeze me in after a month or so...but ideally I'd like to get back on the road sooner. I also called Scuderia Donati, but I'm not sure they do regular oil change/fix it stuff and they haven't called me back...

I live in Beverly, MA. Can someone please recommend a good garage on the North Shore? I'd really like someone local. It would be wonderful if they have Alfa experience but I am open to those who are not necessarily Alfa specific. I stopped by a mechanics in Beverly just before the bridge into Salem as they used to have a bunch of old Alfas out front, but the shop is under new management and they told me the mechanic I was looking for (Carlos?) has moved to Lynn.... no forwarding info.

I feel like I am on a wild goose chase! Any leads greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much!

Try Mike Wrigley (sp) who worked with Paul Glynn. He does the mechanical side over at Scuderia Donati. His cell phone is (508) 843-7901.
Note he does the mech work on the side.
He has access to Glynn's garage and most of the records so if you were a former customer of Glynn's Mike will surely have your records.
Hope this helps.
