Okay, a good question: A friend of a friend is looking for someone to work on a 1964 Citroen AZ in Orlando. Any leads?

Wikipedia informs me that an AZ is a Belgian-built 2CV. Can't you just lend the guy a hammer and maybe a slot-head screwdriver?

Hmmmmm, the owner of one of my favorite restaurants down here has a 2 CV, I'll ask him who he uses...

I called the guy I know of with the 2CV (Chez Vincent), his mechanic is a private individual. He passed along my name and number to his mechanic, if he is willing to he will call me...

I asked a friend who is a member of the CCNA and he is going to ask another member that is more into the club if there is anyone he knows of around the Orlando area. So hopefully he gets back to me soon.

I'm the friend of the friend looking for the Citroen mechanic in Orlando. I did contact both Fiat club members and unfortunetly they couldn't help. If you come across any other options please send them along. thank you

kabel I wondered if you had heard anything back from the Chez Vincent owner? I haven't had any luck finding anyone so far.

Tell him I'll come in and order big if he can help! I've actually eaten there and we had a great meal. Thanks for the assist

Sorry, no call back from them

You should go have dinner at Chez Vincent. Vincent is always there, you should ask to see him and could just happen to strike up a conversation.. "I heard you have a 2CV?" Often it is parked out front.

Will do. That was actually the fall back plan. Anything on the menu we have to try?

MJf,

Cant go wrong there really. Might be more than most people are used to spending, but we really enjoy the place and the food, Vincent loves his craft & with out being too pretentious.
