    Wanted: independent shop for air cooled 911s in Clear Lake area, South of Houston

    Wanted: Indy shop for air cooled in Clear Lake area
    I have need for a local shop to do oil change, tune, and some light mechanical work on my 1973 targa, and itís good running 3.2 liter Motronic engine.
    I am in the Friendswood area and want to find a good shop south of the loop 8 area, anywhere up to include Galveston I guess.
    Appreciate any input, experience, in this regard. I have moved here from Austin and have no contacts.

    Personally, I'd go an hour the other way and see Warren at Callas Rennsport in Sealy.
    Anyone know the penalty in California for insurance fraud? Taking a survey...

    Bill - Einar’s Garage is in downtown Houston. He works on older and newer Porsches. He may even know someone a bit closer to you. Warren at Rennsport is excellent.
