Black Horse Garage
"For me, the Black Horse Garage is misnamed. I call it the White Knight Garage.I have been a customer of Frank Buonanno and Black Horse for more than 20 years. Frank is not only an outstanding expert/mechanic but he is also a friend and a decent human being. To name just a few of my business transactions with Frank:Frank and his craftsmen performed extensive restoration work and rebuilt the engine in my 1935 Rolls Royce 20/25. This Rolls Royce has won practically all the major trophies at the RROC (Rolls Royce Owners' Club) National Meets. It won Best in Class honors many times, the Shamrock Trophy (for the most improved car since the last National Meet), Best of Show twice, and Best among Previous Winners.Of interest is that in order to have a car judged at an RROC national meet it has to be driven to the show and not trailered. If the distance is enormous then the RROC requires a minimum of 100 miles to be driven after the car arrives at the show. I drove the 1935 Rolls Royce, without a mechanical failure, to Ottawa, Canada, Lexington, KY, Asheville, NC, Newport, RI, and the Homestead, VA.In addition, to the above Black Horse Garage has worked on my 1979 Corniche Drophead another multiple winner at the RROC Nationals. Also, several of my others cars: 1973 Buick Centurion, 1968 Ford LTD w/428ci engine, 1979 Lincoln Mark V, 1973 Jaguar E-Type V-12 Roadster.More recently, the day-to-day management of Black Horse Garage was handed down to the next generation. Frank's son , John, has taken over and under his excellent leadership the garage has expanded tremendously and added additional outstanding mechanics, body shop experts, and able support staff all housed in larger facilities. Frank is still at the shop every day however, meticulously rebuilding complex engines and overseeing projects.In 2009 I entrusted my 1935 Rolls Royce 20/25 to Black Horse Garage for a repaint. John made sure the work was finished before the Lime Rock Park Concours d'Elegance event where the car took Best in Class honors. The exterior finish can only be described as flawless.In closing, I feel compelled to mention another car, although I know Frank cringes every time I bring it up. It is my 1977 Toyota Celica GT. Yes, you read it right, for 30 years Frank and Black Horse have maintained this car: engine/body/interior, but that's a story in itself for another time. I enthusiastically recommend Black Horse Garage to every collector car owner seeking an honest shop that always provides expert guidance, outstanding craftsmanship, attentive customer service and great value."

The guy who wrote the last review is an idiot. If you want a professional job done at a fair price, M&F Auto is the only place to go in the Bridgeport area. They know what they are doing. It could be why they do all the work for all the surrounding dealers in the area. Larry and LJ are my kind of people. Straight shooters that get the job done on time and under budget.

Ed and the guys are always awesome--I have been to every chain mechanic shop and they have consistently beat them in price and time. You can't stay in business as long as they have been if they were your typical underhanded mechanics-- they are honest to the tee. Have used them for years and will continue as long as they stay.

Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
