Does anyone know a good inspection Mechanic?

Its that time of year again and I usually end up going back to Germantown(my old hood) to get my car inspected because I have a mechanic I can trust. The price is great but its such a hassle. Does anyone have any good recommendations for a good inspection mechanic? THanks.

Mike at B&D, Belgrade and Dauphin. A good mechanic, a good guy, and he likes Guinness (the dog). The last may not be a good qualifier though.

the dog might actually be relevant - perhaps you need to come with a dog to meet the good mechanic - i was there twice sans dog and was underwhelmed by the way mike operates.

garrison is very good (and very expensive)
i have settled for the guys on frankford at berks (they have great hours: 4pm-9pm)

I don't think Garrison's is very expensive.

They're at the high end for the neighborhood, still making them cheaper than any of the places I went years ago when I lived elsewhere.
