CAPTION: If you’re going to buy a Porsche, you’re going to need a competent, trustworthy mechanic. If your choice in car is something modern and in good shape, your mechanic will service it. If you’re going to buy a car that’s old and tired, your mechanic will help you bring it back to life. Either way, you’ll need one. So you might as well recruit him early enough to help you find the perfect car.
