Hans Nissen in Campbell California

I don't know if these guys are still around or not, but I took my first Mercedes there in the early 90s and they were the best.

Father and sons operation, specializing in all older cars. They were the only shop I found in the South Bay that knew my 1972 280 SEL 4.5 in and out and could find and fix mystery things that MS European and Los Gatos European were unable to ever find.

Hans Nissen in Campbell California

They went ouf business years ago and their business was bought by Campbell European on Winchester Ave. The new owner is a retired engineer and runs the shop with his wife. Very friendly folks and looks like they have lots of loyal customers including Hans' customers.
I am not 100% sure how Hans was since I never used him and I bought a used '87 300TD wagon that Hans used to repair. The engine has a blown head gasket and the owner kept going to him with overheating issues. Hans changed the thermostat, new radiator and even RTV around the head gasket to fix the known issue with that motor.
