This is off topic as my daughter is NOT driving my '64 Cad in LA, but a yeoman old Saturn (recent impoverished college grad). I am 2000 miles away and unable to review and service the car. Can anyone recommend a "real guy" independent mechanic who can give the car a "going over" replacing fluids and inspecting what needs to be done so I can feel comfortable she can use it safely for a while? Obviously the local "oil change place" is not going to cut it for my sense of comfort. Please forgive the non-'63/64 Cad-specific question.
Not in West L.A. but about 15 miles away in Torrance is a place I can recommend. I work across the street and know the owner. He can certainly do what you are asking if your daughter wants to make the drive.

Thank you. I will check it out.
