Default Cheap place to get my car painted?

Can anyone recommend a place (or person) in the Portland area who can take the yucky old paint off my Impreza and repaint her, too??

It doesn't have to be factory, doesn't have to be perfect, but i don't want to have it peeling off in a week, either (like the current paint job is).

this is for my rallyx car, so i don't really want to spend to much, but i don't want it to be ugly, either.

so any recommendations on a place that is inexpensive and does a fair job?

THANKS!!

Well I guess you could go to maaco and get the medium class (not the $400 one but the $800 one) ....According to the maaco here they changed their whole paint and stuff because they use to start flaking, but I guess they fixed that

Find a good, small body shop and offer cash.
Works every time.
I had a dent in my car the size of Texas, and I got it pulled out and painted for $650 cash.
I also had the wing fixed and resprayed at the same time, which was included in the price.

If you ever make it up to Chelan, WA (worth the trip during the summer) I can hook you up.
