I can recommend this garage, very professional, if he tells you 2 weeks, bet u r bottom dollar is two weeks, work is very good, painted a vehicle for us and we were very pleased with the worksmanship and delivery time..

Give him a call.

IMHO... when looking for a garage to do work for you, is more like 'to each his own' eveyone will come and tell you this one good and that one good, but it will always boil down to the garage that YOU feel comfortable with and can suit u r pocket. Yes i understand previous comments and reviews will assist, but with each car/job the work will different.

What was the cost at that time and what was the scope of work (painting alone, painting and minor bodywork, etc.)?

^^Minor bodywork and painting, both left doors dented, front left fender needed straightening, and complete painting, no colour change. Cost was $6900, time was two weeks. Other estimates ranged from 6k to 15k for same job, but with longer time.

My concern with places like Auto Body Works is the Price!

Are they reasonable and do they work on old cars like minis and ting?

Bhola's....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! :|

Yuh can't be serious! If you all think they are good, then you have a lot to learn about quality. Don't let bling, nice equipment, bling-out rides and fancy price fool allyuh.

There are guys working from old sheds at the side of their houses putting out better work than those glamorous body shops, and it's these guys who are experienced and know the real art of bodywork.

Lesson here: Take a look at some cars with experienced straighteners and they will teach you a thing or two. Then you will be able to identify, demand and get the kind of quality you want. :)
