BEST MECHANIC Shorty Anderson’s Auto Service Young or old, fit or flabby, we all want the same thing, really: a mechanic we trust completely to keep our wheels rolling. For the sixth time this year, BOM voters say that’s Shorty Anderson’s. What makes them so popular? “We just try to be honest with everybody and treat everybody fairly,” says Travis Rowan, part of the Rowan clan that bought the garage from the original Shorty in the late 1970s. Don’t look for Shorty’s posts online—the crew of five spends all their time fixing cars. We wouldn’t have it any other way. 908 Stewart Street, 304.599.4419

BEST CAR WASH / DETAILER Full Throttle Auto Spa Drew Nieman was born and raised in Morgantown and has been into cars since he could crawl, he says. “About five years ago, I decided to take a gamble and start this business. I was determined to make it work, and it’s really taken off. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made.” Nieman started by working alone in one bay, cleaning one vehicle at a time. Now, he employs four full-time technicians with 30 collective years of experience restoring vehicles, which he says distinguishes them from other detail shops in the area. Most of Full Throttle’s customers go for full interior and exterior detailing. The business also offers ceramic coating, which protects exterior paint. It’s nothing to spot a Maserati or Ferrari in one of his bays—or even catch his crew at the airport working on private planes. 1251 Canyon Road, 304.212.5569, fullthrottleautospa.com, @fullthrottleautospa on FB
