Re: [DML] "Professional" Mechanics

Any service shop is only as good as their worst mech on a bad day.
Good help is very hard to find and even harder to keep. There are few
places that can be recomended for service work on a Delorean or any
exotic, rare car for that matter. It is difficult for even more
modern, daily drivers. If you are unlucky enough to have an unusual
problem with a car you are at the mechanic's mercy and guesswork. This
is one of the main reasons I offer advice for Deloreans. In too many
cases you must UNDO previous incorrect work before you can fix the
underlying, origional problem. After 20 years and several owners and
the various shops that had their hands on the car there are always
things that must be redone correctly. Most mechanics in America are
not familiar with Bosh fuel injection but it doesn't seem to stop them
from working on it! And all that education, parts, and time is at YOUR
