SF Newcomer

Just found this site. I don't currently own a defender but I am in the market for one.

There are a couple on CL that are local.

If you want a pristine truck contact Copley.

Otherwise, take your time and look at the for sale section here.

A few trucks have popped up over the last couple of months that I would consider to be "great deals"

Welcome!

Thanks for the warm welcome. Does anyone happen to know a trusted mechanic in Northern California? I am looking for one.

cerrones has a good rep around here, I would only suggest looking at the shop in the east bay and the one in SF (the owner drives a NAS d90).

Smart man though, looking for a mechanic before you even own the Landy.

I live in SF but have no issue going to a mechanic in the East Bay or Peninsula. Grew up in the sticks of Louisiana and use to work in the summer at a trucking terminal that my friend dad owns. I am sure I can do some work but it's been a long time since I did anything major. Thanks for all the recommendations!

I think it's mainly a repair shop but they may have a bead on a few for sale as well.
