    Default Air Cooled VW Mechanic

    Hi... I am new to the twin cities and live in Mounds View.... I have a car that has been in storage for two years. I started it twice a year during this time period, but, it does need some attention and a general tune up done before taking it down the road. It is essentially a 1971 air cooled 1600 dual port engine. I would like to find a good mechanic somewhere near the Blaine area. Let's leave it at that for now. I appreciate any advice anyone has for me.... and look forward to hearing from someone with some good news.

    Hi there and welcome. I know Tristan at Further Performance does air-cooled stuff, he can for sure get your 1600 running well, not sure if their location works for you but at least it's in the cities.

    Yea, don't know anyone in Blaine, but both Further Performance and Good Carma are reputable air-cooled mechanics

    Depending on where you are in Blaine, JAC Auto in Anoka might be closer than those Minneapolis and St Paul options.

    I would consider Further the best option though.
