In need of a 300zx mechanic

I own a 1990 z32 300zx with 100,000km on it. I bought it almost a year ago and I absolutely love it, now its time for me to put some good money into it.

I have experience and knowlege about working and fixing cars but I just don't have the time to do it myself. So I am looking for a mechanic or a shop that won't rip me off.

I want get the engine into tip top shape then work on upgrades from there.
I want someone who I can keep on coming back to and develop trust with.

My ultimate goal is to give it a nice clean stock look with a upgraded performance engine, I'll work the details when I find someone. If anyone can help point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Ask Arash Boodagh, he seems to "know a lot" about 300ZX's .

In all seriousness though, I've heard various good things from the RS sponsors. Hit up one of them, and they can probably help you out!

Akira at the shop has owned a few 300ZX's in his time. He knows this car very well.

Give us a shout and ask for Akira. I'm sure he can help you out.

PM me your information and i can pass it onto another tech at my work. He has a Z32 with a built motor, and sport 500's..actually he doesnt even drive it anymore, but he still knows a lot about them. We both work at Nissan, hes probably one of the few guys that still remember doing PDI's on them when they first came out lol.
ride/drive best of both worlds.
