Grey Market Repairs

I bought an '83 280SL when I was stationed in Germany. It only has abuot 75K miles and seldom driven. The time I drove it, it started smoking blue smoke. I'm thinking that the valve seals are leaking. I'm Sacramento area and would like to have the engine rebuilt. I've had Automeister in Stockton work on it once but was not satisfied with their service. Any shop recommendations?

Ernie!!! He is an awesome mechanic, and works on several grey market cars.

He is in Orangevale, off Main Street and Greenback.

His telephone number is (916) 989-4973.

He may seem a bit gruff at first, but once you get through that, he is a really cool guy to know.... A bunch of the forum members here go to him...

Tell him Justin with the Wagons (G-Wagon and 300TE) sent you over there. He will know who I am... LOL.
