Speaking for myself, my rolodex (showing my age) is full of racing buddies who own repair shops. My breakdowns give them something to talk about, like how I drove 7 miles on the interstate with a broken tie rod and front wheel floating free, or how I made one of their mechanics crap his pants in less than 100 feet on a test drive when he didn't believe my diagnosis that the steering box in my pickup suffered a catastrophic failure and was un-drivable. No freebie repairs from any of them, but I know that the work is being performed competently and don't mind supporting local small businesses.....
