Post 60's Mercedes Restoration or Service Source

I am in the San Francisco Bay area, down towards San Jose. I am looking for someone who can service, help restore, or even answer questions regarding older 60's era Mercedes. It would be great if I could find someone who has a passion for this sort of thing rather than just looking to make a buck. Anyone have a good suggestion? Maybe a local club?

Thanks

Are you a member of the local Mercedes club branch? Probably the most fanatical group of Mercedes owners you could find and a terrific resource.

Bostosh - That's about a 2 hour drive for me, but it doesn't mean I can't give them a call for advice or make the trip. Thanks for the pointer to them. I need to find some trustworthy folks to work with. Thanks

DirectLA - Great advice. I am looking them up now.

I actually have not purchased anything yet, but I did own a 1964 Porsche 356 for a few years and I learned. It was a driver that needed restoration when I bought it, and it needed a bit too much for the amount of time I had. I wanted to find someone relatively nearby that I coudl work with. Thanks for the lead in Irvine - I got down to that neck of the woods farily often.
