    Looking at a 328GTS to add to the stable, would like to have some friendly suggestions of who the group would recommend to preform a PPI on a 328GTS. Very little in the way of maintenance records (first sign to be wary). However, did speak with the last mechanic to work on the car but he just did a major service one time. No other history other than his recollection from 3 years ago.

    Personally, I'd contact @Rifledriver - he's based in Austin, but I am sure he would travel for PPIs. He's a highly respected Ferrari mechanic and concours judge.

    I don't think Rifledriver does PPI.

    Unless I misunderstood him, that's not what he told me. Not that he said "I do PPIs" but he said he would help me find the right one which I read to mean that. I could be wrong but I don't think so.

    Better for me to let Brian speak for himself; perhaps my impression of his current service offering isn't accurate.

    I do not do them for out of town buyers.

    Get in touch with M Brandon Motorcars. He is in Houston and can point you to someone.

    There's a small Euro shop in the Woodlands on the NB feeder, they take care of an early carbed car like mine and several other Ferraris in there. As I no longer pass by it, it's faded in memory.

    Texas Forever probably knows of them.

    That's north Houston
    M. Brandon is inside the Loop.

    Ferrari of Houston has a Woodlands location and they now bring themselves to "touch" a 308/328.
