Would you send your body to a hospital you didn't trust? Well, you wouldn't send your car body to one either, which is why we treasure the Body Shop. Founded in 1970 by the grandfatherly Bill Mitchell on North St., it was eventually pushed out by encroaching development, and made the move to north Austin a few years ago. The service remains honest, fast, and they'll work with your insurance company to have a rental waiting when you drop off. Mitchell's tradition of no surprises and a fair price now continues with Bill's son Mitch. One note: If you don't crawl under the office bench where a large rabbit resides, you'll be fine.
