No Portland Mercedes Benz Classic Center?
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a Mercedes Benz classic center near them. It is really a shame because these places are well known for their expertise when it relates to you and your classic or antique Benz. The next best thing you can do is find someone who has the experience and knowledge that would equate to a similar service that you would find at one of these places. In all honesty, there are very few of these people still around. What is even more difficult is finding these people because most of them are savvy in classic/antique Mercedes Benz repair, not marketing tactics, therefore, you could have one of these highly specialized people right next door to you and not realize that they are even there at all.

How Do Other People Find Them
Honestly, most people have been in Portland for awhile and that means that they have had contacts built up in the city. They met a lot of these experts back when there were a lot more of them to go around. Some left, some retired, and some stayed in the business because of the joy of it. Now, most of the people who are left are of the latter type. They still work for the business they did then but they never advertising to get more business because they did not have to do so.
