Default How do you find a good Supra mechanic?

I have a 87 Supra Turbo and I need to get a few things done. I am obviously not mechanically inclined, so I need to find a good mechanic. I have called a few Toyota dealerships and they don't seem too interested in servicing my older Supra (primarily the head gasket replacement). And, I just don't think my regular shop is knowledgeable enough either (when it comes to the head gasket). So, does anybody have any tips in searching for a good place to take my Supra?

I live in the Pittsburgh area. So, if anyone knows anyone in my local area, please let me know.

This would be better asked in the MKIII section, I think... More people will see it. I'll move it there.

To answer your question the best route is to fond other owners in your area and go from there. I don't know of anyone in Pittsburgh so I can't be of much direct help. Check out the regional section over on SupraMania.com to find local owners and their recommendations. They've got a huge user base and you're likely to find some assistance quickly.

Heh, yup, or you could do it that way!

Good to see some of our older members are still following the forum!
