Moved from Los Angeles to Austin, TX...W108/M130 Mechanic HELP!!!

Hello Fellow Benz lovers!

Can anyone suggest a good mechanic in Austin, TX area? I need some work on a 70 280sel with M130 engine. Referrals seem to always work best. I was spoiled in LA, so don't expect the same in Austin, but hopeful.

I've tried a couple around town. Currently I'm with Austin ********, and they're pretty good. Would love to hear of someone awesome, though.
Nelson Mandela was offered a red W126 by the workers of MBSA when he was released from captivity.

This 500SEL was offered to Pope John Paul II, in august of 1985. The car was lenghtened slightly, a single rear seat and an enlarged slideroof were just some of the extras on this car. Oh, and it was armoured, of course.

Facts from this very cool W126 site:

There was a retired Mercedes Mechanic posting on Craigslist. I have not used him but talked to him on the phone a few times. He is very smart and very talkative. I don't have his number anymore because my phone died since and I lost his phone number. Keep a eye out for him he is pretty cool.
