Doing Your Own Maintenance
« on: July 15, 2011, 06:46:43 PM »
Do most of you guys do all of your own maintenance, etc. on your first gen Camaros?  I can do the basic, simple stuff but am unknowledgeable with more complicated stuff or don't have the right area or tools to do the job.  Any suggestions on finding a reputable, trustworthy mechanic or shop to work on a 1969 Z/28?  Thank you.

I'm sure it is across the board as to what members do or don't do on their cars...  If you say where you are located, someone in your area may know a local shop.  Or even lend a hand!

I'm in Nevada City, Calif., a town in the Northern California foothills between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.

Ah, Nevada City.  Rode the Harleys in there from Truckee on father's day weekend...  I don't know anyone up there.  My brother-in-law is a mechanic.  But he works in Roseville.

I have thought for a while that there is a need for shops which cater to the maintenance of Classics and sports cars. Ie adjust valves, gaskets in carb bowls, points etc.

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm talking about.  Seems most modern day shops can handle all the new electronic gadgetry but don't have any idea of how to service carbs, non-electronic distributors, valves, etc.
