Restoration Shop Recommendation - Dallas area

I've got an 85 300zx turbo that I've done repairs on for years. After a job change, I ran into a period of time where time and money could not be found.


While money is still tight, I'd like to find a shop that I can take my Z to so I can get a "one and done" repair/restoration.


Is there anyone familiar with the Dallas area that knows of a shop that might be able to do this?


I've called many places but most of the time I'm told no because its not an American car.


Thanks in advance for all your comments and recommendations.


Thanks!

I'm running into the same issue here in Nashville, TN. I need a motor rebuilt. May call Z1 Motorsports in Atlanta to see if they will touch it. Good luck.

Have you tried Crawford Z Car Service? 615-327-4159

Might also contact DBR in Spring Hill, TN http://dbrhighperformance.com/ or Track One in Nolensville, TN
http://trackonemotorsports.com/

If not, Z1 is a good next option.

I thought about Z1 but the inconvenience of getting the car down there is holding me back. I haven't had the luck with Crawford. I'll check into the two you recommended. Thanks Randy.
