    Not any more. There was a guy here in Visalia - an oldtimer who had his own shop -, but he's retired and sold his shop to some young sorts. These guys just wrinkle up their nose and say "STUDEBAKER!???"

    There IS a shop here in Visalia that's run by an old hot-rodder. Guy looks like a cross between a hippie and a biker dude, but he knows cars! Mid-Valley Transmission on East Main - ask to speak to Butch and tell him Studeebob sent you.
    I don't know what they might charge and I've never had them do any work for me but I do know that Butch won't just turn you away.

    Miscreant at large.
