A good auto mechanic can be nearly as important to Southern California drivers as a family doctor. A bad one can leave you veritably crippled. If you have a favorite auto mechanic, tell us about him or her. If all you have are horror stories, we'd like to hear those too.
And It's Got 12 Gold-Plated Cylinders . . .
We see cars on the road in Orange County that cost more than houses do in many parts of the country. Ferraris, Maseratis, Rolls-Royces--they're not exactly a dime a dozen here, but status cars are common enough that most of us barely take notice when they pull up. But what's the ULTIMATE Orange County status car? We would like your opinion, whether it is in your garage or merely in your dreams. Be as specific as possible when it comes to model, year, color, options, etc.
