In 30+ years I haven't found a competent shop to work on any air cooled I've owned. If it's a nys inspection the guys at black forest work on my friends audi and he is satisfied, https://www.blackforestmotorsport.com

Took my 930 to Village Imports on Transit Rd. for inspection this year. I always check everything out before to make sure any shop doesn't try to pull something. They will make you leave it for a couple hours. They had an '87 930 and a Ferrari Maranello 550 in their showroom when I was there and another customer 930 out on front. No complaints other than they make you wait. I've had the P-car dealer on Main do inspections too, but they don't like to work on the old ones.

Good to know, I've got the ass end of mine apart and need an alignment. Steve, you got that 79 back on the road yet?

Thatís odd! Probably they donít understand old cars!

I am looking for a pre purchase inspection on a 78 but it seems there are bo good shops up there! And some tell me to be wary of buffaloers too...

Have you checked out the Niagara Region PCA. Maybe reach out to someone there.

The have tech inspections at Eksten Autoworks, but thatís not exactly around the corner from buffalo.

There was also a thread asking the same question on the 911 forum. The last post has some suggestions.

I would take a look at it for you but I'm out of town until late Sept. Try that Village Imports and see what they say.
