Hello, everyone. I'm new to the site and wanted to get folks' thoughts and recommendations on the best mechanics for 111s and 113s in the NY / NJ area. I have a 1971 280SE 3.5 coupe (proud photo attached!). Thanks much!!

I can’t help you with a mechanic, but you have a fantastic car and great color combo.

I have not used Wolfgang, but I have heard positive reviews about his shop.

Thanks very much, Wallace. That’s kind of you! It’s an incredible experience every time I drive it. I’m constantly amazed at how well-built these cars are and how they can more than hold their own in modern traffic. The two-tone is a nice American distinction that is hard to find elsewhere in the world (to my knowledge).
