body shop recommendations?

I just got my 2003 SVT back on the road with a new engine after the wife overheated it last March, then last night on the way home from work I got side swiped the full length of the drivers side of the car from behind. I have to wait until Monday morning to get some estimates but I am looking for a few body shop recommendations in the St. Paul area, I am really hoping that it does not get totaled after what I have just put into it.

If I did not have good winter tires I would have most likely hit the car/s in front of me but I stopped with plenty of room then the guy behind me in his pickup tried to go between me and the guard rail because he had almost zero traction and could not stop (I hate people that think because they have a 4x4 they think they can stop better than a car can, but fail to have good tires for winter driving )

Hamlin auto body or Ford body shop?

Looking for some recommendations a my car is really messed up. Less than 2 months after putting a new engine in :-(

What is it with SUV and pickup truck drivers that think just because they have 4x4 they don't need to slow down like everyone else? And don't feel the need to have good tires on their vehicle? Seriously the anti lock brakes combined with good Finish winter tires stopped me 20-30' from the car in front of me, and I get a full size pickup wedge himself between me and the guard rail!
