And the award goes to...

There's nothing like rogue snowbanks, shredded tires and faulty ignitions to highlight the importance of a good place for auto repairs.

So we figured 2011's Best of Lawrence contest — voting begins Monday — would be a great opportunity for the community to weigh in on the most trusted names in auto service around town. This category, as well as the category for best overall restaurant are the last two categories we have to preview.

Thank you for all the feedback you've provided thus far. It has certainly had us looking forward to counting your votes. But there's still time for you to help us make sure we've got our bases covered. Don't see your go-to spot for auto repairs? Think your favorite restaurant belongs on the list?
