Need 240D mechanic in Clearwater/Pinellas Cty, FL

I am looking for a mechanic for a 1982 240D in Clearwater/Pinella County Florida.

I just bought a gold 240D automatic one owner Florda car with over 400,000 miles on it. Car seems to be running OK, but I need to have it checked over. The exterior is in amazing condition, original paint, no rust, and am not planning to put alot of miles on it for the time being. I am planning to eventually sell it after I can find a 240D with manual transmisson and lower miles. That's why I don't want to put alot of $$$ into it.

I am planning to have one of the Benz dealers in the area give me a detailed diagnostic on the car, but I do not plan to spend $$$ for them to do the work. Therefore, I am looking for someone in the area to do any needed work and am looking for trustworthy references. I thought of taking it to one of the diesel truck mechanics in the area. Does that make sense?

This is my first Benz. Before that I drove a 1988 Honda Accord that I've owned for many years, and before that drove a Chevy Chevette with factory Isuzu deisel engine for about 5 years.

I am in the middle of a move and helping with a family medical situation so I have not had time to take and post pictures, but I will try to do so in the next month or two.
