I'm lucky - my 'mechanic' runs his own business which amongst the mundane jobs it also handles the majority of 'petrol-head' type jobs in town, i.e. engine swaps, hot-ups, transmission rebuilds etc, he's a drag-racer and lover of all American cars - favouring the bow-tie brigade sadly but will dirty his hands on any V8.
Oh, after saying all that, I do all my oil/filter changes etc anyway!.
