Chicago area newbie

Hello! I joined with the intent of purchasing anything from a 308 - 360. Has to be mid engined 2 sweater as these are the cars I love. I have owned Porsches and had a horrific Lotus Esprit V8 experience, so really wanting to find the best balance between usability and maintenance costs..like so many of you.

What I have not seen, and was hoping existed was a chart showing by model various service and common problems/ repair items with an approximate range of costs. I "hear" and "see" variations of people commenting on costs, but nothing seems to be definatitive. I don't mind paying for Ferarri to make it what it should be, but want to minimize surprises. Any document like this exist? Maybe this is something that we could put together?

Lastly, any recommended Chicago area independent rair facilities anyone could recommend?

Many thanks!

Curt
