A good mechanic that won't charge millions, in LA?

Does Anyone have a recommendation for a mechanic doing a good job without charging an arm and a leg.
I am in LA, San-Fernando valley east.
I need maintenance and tune-up for my "new" '85 308.
Thanx.

I brought my car yesterday to Black Horse Motors, for tune-up, on La Cienega in LA.

They specialize in Ferraris and Lambos.

I'll let you know if it was a good idead, when they are done with it!

I got my baby back yesterday.
The mechanic seems knowledgeable.
they worked 4 hours on the car, replaced the fuel distributor, adjusted fuel pressures, repair the front headlight switch and replaced the spark plugs.
All for a total cost of $988.88.

does that seem reasonable?

One more vote for Eugenio. He's very well regarded in SoCal. He's worked on one of my past Ferraris (355) and did a stellar job.
