New guy in Santa Cruz

New guy from Santa Cruz here. I picked up a 2002 SVT yesterday. Anyone live around here? Does anyone know a trustworthy shop in or around Santa Cruz I can take my Focus to? I need to get the timing belt done.

Welcome to SC or maybe it's welcome to the FoFa via SC

I'm in SC too - Jesse has been awesome when it comes to knowing folks in the area or just to do work on your car with.

I caught some air with my car and landed on my front right - I have to diagnose the problem - when are you in town again?

Sweet ride bro! I ride a CX bike and usually stuff it into the trunk with the seats folded down. Let's meet up some time, take a quick tour of Bonny Doon and Ice Cream grade!

Thanks, dude! Love both those rides though I love the bike more than any car I've owned. Cool I'm not too far off from Bonny Doon and Ice Cream Grade. I'm down.
