York Rd, Cockeysville, MD (North of Baltimore)

Haven't had service done there, but I stopped in yesterday to see if they had a spare exhaust valve seal for a 617 (I lost 1 somewhere in my moves last year).

They dug around in the desk and a parts bin and VOILA! OM617A exhaust valve seal!

They have a small yard with parts cars in the back, many W123's. Seems like a decent place to go if you're not doing the work yourself.
In case the photos goes away, 10721 York Road, Cockeysville, MD

Just to further demonstrate how awesome Chris is, here's another story. Recently, my 84 300D made a crunching noise, belched a ton of white smoke from under the hood, and began rattling. One triple A tow later, the car was at Hunt Valley Imports. The next day, I called Chris, and, without me saying a word, he said that it was his fault, that he appears to have crimped the valve cover gasket after adjusting the valves recently, causing gasket failure and oil drainage/blast out. He's replacing the engine on his own dime. Ever hear of a mechanic admitting to something like that and making it good? Especially, without me ever suggesting to him that he may have done something wrong? He could have tried many ways to talk his way out of that, but chose to do the right thing. What better recommendation?
