Good Indy shop in Boston area?

If you saw my LCA post, you know that I'm in trouble now

Can anybody recommend a good Boston area Indy shop?

Also, I put my damaged ball joint back. The locking nut of the ball joint is missing, since I cut it off The stud is also damaged and not long enough to re-thread.

I think I can't drive it, and need a tow, right? I was thinking about drive about half mile very slowly, to a garage nearby. Now I think I should not risk it at all. Otherwise there would be even bigger trouble, right?

Thanks in advance?
Sean

German Performance Service

I went to see them for a transmission evaluation after doing a series of fluid and filter changes. I was very impressed. This is where I'm going for the next repair that exceeds my skills.
