    Any experiences with GTO Engineering ? They are about 2 miles away from our house here in LA.

    Looks like a top flight outfit. Is there maintenance turn-around time reasonable or are they more into restoring cars ? 456M leaking some coolant.

    I know a lot of people who love them. As a relatively new owner (2 years) Ive done the minor stuff myself so I have no personal experience. Ill either take my car to them or Francos in the Van Nuys.

    GTO Engineering is great ! Eric Sander has years of experience working on Older Ferraris and still can repair cars not just replace parts !
    Honest He is my friend but he was a former ferrari master mechanic one of the 28th in the USA when the title meant some thing at auto gallery Ferrari.

    I appreciate that feedback. They were recommended to me at one of the Malibu shows recently.

    Eric is great but it's pricey. If not for the bill I would bring all my cars there even I m an hour away.

    Don't forget Gran Turismo in West Los Angeles..
    Also very good and very reasonable..
    From a basic brake job to a full restoration on a vintage Ferrari..
    Ask for Giovanni..

    Eric Sander at GTO is absolutely 100 % professional as is Carl Steuer at BlackHorse
    If they cost more it is because the issue is being found sooner from decades of skill backed by experience -
    IMHO, These are the two top vintage techs that I would take my car too

    The 456M is with Carl (once again) as we speak for some improvements/repairs.
