    Hi All,

    So I'm looking for an Enzo-Era-savvy shop to do a PPI on a car at RM Sotheby's Blenheim, Ontario, Canada, offices. My understanding is that Blenheim is an hour and change across the border into Canada from the Detroit area.

    If the shop is close by, I suspect that RM might be willing to bring it over, but my guess is that someone from the shop will have to go over and look at the car there; my understanding is that a lift is available on site, but whoever looks at the car should bring any tools that they would need for at least a compression check.

    I know about Rock's Automotive Restoration, but it looks like it would be a 6-hour round-trip to have someone from there look at the car, and I was wondering if anyone knew of a good shop that was a little closer.

    All thoughts greatly appreciated.

    Cheers (and Best for the Holidays),
    Alex

    Cauley Ferrari is in West Bloomfield, ~ 1/2 hour from Detroit. They do top-notch work.

    I hear good things about Terry Myr. From what I understand, he's as good as they come. Should be a good bet on Ezo-era cars.

    RM is fully equipped. No first hand experience, but they have looked after my relatives' cars for decades and do world class work.

    That is great news. I have always wanted to meet him. He was the mechanic on my dads old Ferrari. I contacted him years ago just as he was about to throw all his old records away. I wouldn't have been able to find the serial number of the Dino if it weren't for him. Is he back working on cars?

    the last I heard was that he was indeed again working on cars, but I was not able to verify that.
