    Are you not capable of doing various mechanical repairs and procedures by yourself? Perhaps time is the main issue?
    There are plenty of qualified, experienced and worthy (slant-six) mechanics among the Allpar membership - -whether 'shade-tree' or 'dealership'.
    At the very least, perhaps describe your particular issue and let the membership offer advice or recommendations.
    Most of today's repair shops primarily cater to (specialize in) modern computer-controlled vehicles and their favorite tool is a hand-held scanner so the old-time 'hands-on' mechanics that know what to do with pre-eighties technology are getting to be few and far between.
    Besides, shop rates will be the same - regardless of age of the vehicle - and most of today's mechanics and techies are basically over-qualified to work on the old stuff.
