Good shops between Maine and Baltimore?

Am picking up and driving a GTV6 down from Maine to Baltimore this Friday or Saturday. Will have a friend trailing in case of any mechanical issues I can't fix on the spot, but am not familiar with any shops north of Baltimore to leave the car in case car can't be fixed. Could use some recommendations. Alfa-specialists are nice of course, but most importantly would like to know of trustworthy shops where I could leave the car and where it would be safe until it is fixed and I can pick it up, regardless of specific Alfa expertise.

We'll either be taking 95 the whole way, or (if time permits), we'll head west on 287 just after entering NY from CT, eventually picking up 87 at York, PA.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Jim

Nick Falcone's (near Phila.) is a very good, long-time Alfa service shop. Not too far off I-95, south of Phila. Near Balto., there is Di Fatta Bros., also long-time Alfa shop.

Thanks for the input everyone. The trip's being pushed off until mid-next week but it will happen.

Any shops between New York and York, PA?

Had my clutch changed there and heads redone after a belt slip. The parking lot may make you queasy, but I was told that they do get some high end stuff in there...

I've also heard of Nino Performance in Bethany being Alfa friendly. The one car I saw that was serviced there was in very good mechanical condition.
