    Call Salerno Motorsports in Rocklin 916-652-0496. Ben Salerno is a top rate F-Car Mech. He has done all the work on mine and my father's cars....from 308's to TR's and 360's. He knows his stuff....he also does Porches and Lambos.

    yeah I know I sound like the idiot here! since we both have automotive businesses here in town and do work on some projects together it puts me in a bad spot, trying to find someone around here to work on it.
    so I take it! there are no good mechanics near me,
    atleast Im reminded here on how dumm I am.. thanks. hahaha

    Whoever told you that is waaaaay off. My current '78 has been in his capable hands many times. My father had a '77 and a '78 for years that were serviced by Ben. Call him...he will take care of you.
