I have a 1969 Porsche the engine of which was last rebuilt 30 years ago and after 47 years the transmission failed and a cylinder stopped firing. It had been in my family since it was new. I was at a loss as to where to take it because so few people can work on such an old car and I simply did not have the time to do it myself. I spoke with, Keith, at the AAMCO in Rockville, Maryland who told me he had a guy who was good at working on these cars. I admit, I was skeptical at first but few other options. I left the car with Keith and told him I wanted to see the transmission when it was out and apart. I got the call to go to his Gaithersburg location to meet his mechanic and see my disassembled transmission. When I arrived I met the mechanic and not only was he a nice guy who knew what he was doing and talking about, but he had all of the jobs on which he was working, not just mine, carefully laid out in perfect order. This is exactly the kind of mechanic you want to work on your classic cars - you know, OCD so no parts are left over after reassembly. After the transmission was fixed, I had Rockville AAMCO look at the misfiring problem. One of the heads had some significant wear damage and the valves were not opening for one cylinder. They showed my that when the engine was last rebuilt 30 years ago, not by me ;o), certain things had not been reassemble correctly causing the extra wear. They worked with me to get my spare heads cleaned up and get all of the correct replacement parts which took a bit of time, some came from Germany. They took great care of my car and kept it in the garage on bad weather days. The car now runs better than it has in decades. It has a tight shifting pattern like when it was new and the engine has that classic Porsche purr when it runs, no more backfires. They are now my Porsche mechanics of choice. I plan to take my other cars there too.
