    I live in Blair County PA. Closest dealer is Sterling VA and next closest is in the Philly area. Doing a web search results in numerous mechanics listed but none that are authorized. Anyone know of any authorized mechanics closer to me. Thank you.

    Giuseppe (Joe) DiFelice is THE man.

    He works out of several locations. I take my 308 to Bellasario's in south Oakland.

    I think only dealers will be “authorized”.

    What car? Warranty work? Lots of great independents not sure why you need authorized.

    Authorized may have been the wrong term. I meant people who I can trust to work on my California.

    Also looking for a good independent mechanic in Central PA - reached out to Exoticars in Pittsburgh to see if DiFelice was still there and got this response:

    Good morning- Giuseppe retired few years ago we no longer have a Ferrari mechanic the only work we done now on them is state inspections oil changes tires brakes no major repairs.

    Call Dan Fowler

    I wouldn't have reached out to Exoticars, and I don't know anything about Fowler.

    Lots of PA Ferraris come down to Competizione and Sports Cars in Gaithersburg, MD. They are factory trained and also have some transporters that they work with, so may be worth contacting them. Richard and Fernando are the owners and lead techs.

    Both Dan Fowler in Glenshaw and George Riggin in Harmony are very capable.

    I’ve used George Riggins. Great work without that dealership price
