I have a 1972 G10 sportvan needing some love. I'm having a hard time even finding shops in my area that want to work on older vehicles, much less an old van. Some shops even try to charge more for working on classic vehicles. Looking for a reliable mechanic or shop to tune up the drivetrain, and also looking for a bodyshop or panel beater to help me deal with bad rust around the roof drip rails. I'm not trying to do a full restore just get it good. If anybody has any references or recommendations for any places or people to contact let me know. I'm in Socal so that area is preferred but I would drive to Norcal, Nevada or Arizona if I can find the right place. Thanks.

Wow, you're telling me it's not easy to find a place/person who works on old stuff, especially old Chevy's and in SoCal too? Did you look up some hot rod shops down there? If they turn you away maybe ask them if they have a reference. Maybe try craigslist under 'automotive services'? (I found a guy that way)
