Default Classic Car Mechanic / Garage

I have never used a forum before, I don't even know if this will work, however i'm looking for a TRUSTED classic car specialist, mechanic, garage in Doha and i've spent my entire day searching the internet with no success!
Can anybody help or point me in the right direction?
Thanks

Hi, thanks for getting back! It's a 1966 Dodge Charger! It runs, chassis and body are fine but I want to get it checked out. The Engine needs a look over, air con needs sorting etc, and over time I'd like to get it up to "perfect" condition!
Appreciate your help.
Dan

There's a 1966 Dodge Charger for sale on Dubizzle at the moment. Sorry, that doesn't help.

Have a look at the site rules at the top of the page. There you will learn everything you need to know about posting on this site. Including the fact that now you've made 3 posts the PM facility is available to you.

No phone numbers protects you against less than desirable phone calls. Do you really want head hunters like Scamps phoning you at odd hours?

Ohhhhhh a 1966 Dodge Charger! I am SOOOOOO envious!!!

Mine's a 2010 model, not quite the same, but a beauty and I LOVE it!

Would love to own and maintain one of the older ones! (some would say that mine is an 'older' model it being a ripe old 3 yrs old now!! - and I've blasted 110k kms onto the clock in 18 months ).

Good luck with finding someone who can bring yours to the mint quality it clearly deserves ....sounds like Britexpat76 is your mate on this one!

Oh, and can we have pics of the beauty please?

Or me asking if he's willing to sell it and export to the UAE for a 1/3'rd of what it's worth

Good question, i'm trying to work that out! It's the 383 and has the original engine, thought that was a 6.3L V8 but the seller said it was 4.5L, bit confussed!
Apparently Engines are quite cheap and you can get them in Saudi?
All stuff i have to look into...
