Hey Gang,

    Here’s the rough idea. I may be wrong but I’m sure it would probably take a lot of work. Let me try to put it on paper and any suggestions to streamline it would be helpful.

    In the member stats area you can look at the US map, click on a state, and see the C3 members in that state and who live near you.

   How about possibly doing the same with mechanics and body shops members have used in their state. (or a nearby state).


   Example:  I live in New Jersey. Unable to locate or not quite comfortable taking my baby for repairs or body work. I go to the map, click on N.J., click on either mechanic or body and see a list of reputable (and not reputable) shops in N.J... Information on the shops would be entered by members who have used their services. Their feedback (positive or negative) would be of great help to other members searching for reputable mechanics or body shops that are knowledgeable and reliable when dealing with America’s ONLY true sports car.

Basic information should include their (member) name, name of shop, address, phone #, and website (if applicable), they used. If possible a brief description of the work they had performed would also be helpful. This way if I have a problem and you already had the same problem repaired at “your” shop, it would give me more confidence in choosing a shop.


   Sorry if it is lengthy. I tried to just make points which can be worked on to streamline this idea.


   Let me know what you think.

If you click on the "Research" button at the tops of the pages, you will see a "Mechanics Directory". This can be added to anytime, if someone knows of a good shop in their area...

There are currently 7 shops listed in Joisey...Adams' Apple2008-11-03 19:58:56
