Finding L.A. Mechanic

Recommended Posts

Hi Z-experts-

I am a new owner and new to the forums. I hope this is the correct place to post this. I just purchased a 1982 280ZXT 5-speed. It is in pretty decent shape with 85k. Does anyone have a good mechanic, body shop and leather repair suggestions. I have found Z Expert (Venice), Sunrise Z (Glendale), Pierre Z (Hawthorne) and Precision Z (Canoga park).

Not quite LA, But Elvin in Upland at Z-Car Specialties 909) 981 - 1074. Excellent work, Did my motor, great job. Does everything I don't know how to do or don't want to do.
I think Elvan closed the shop. I'm going to try to verify that tomorrow (Tuesday).

Stephen. I want by Elvan's shop today and it is indeed closed. The phone number is disconnected as well. However, there are still plenty of Z cars inside and the yard is a bit tidier. I spoke to the neighbor. He said that Elvan has some personal matters to attend to but would be reopening in December.

I trust him with my car and hope that he does reopen.

Thanks, Randy. I haven't been down that way for a while. Next time I visit my stepmom or son who both live in Pomona, one in NW Pomona and one in NE Pomona, I'll drive by Elvan's and see if he's home.
