Good shop/mechanic in Northwest Ohio

Hey guys, I'm trying to find a good, reputable mechanic or shop that fixes and restores camaros. I have a 1978 Z28 that needs a lot of work. Just trying to find someone I can trust. I am looking for Northwest Ohio area but anywhere close would work, aka Michigan, Indiana, or somewhere in Ohio. I'm really looking for somewhere within 100 miles of my place, Findlay, OH

Thanks

At this point I need to get it in good running condition first, there is an oil leak and some smoke coming out of the engine. It runs decent up to about 65mph then it gets really choppy. Will probably need a new set of breaks.

Depending on how much work this requires/cost, I would eventually want to restore the inside (front seats need reapholstering, some gauges are missing-heater, door locks don't work, front windshield has small crack.

Again, two phases, first one is get it in good running condition. Second part will depend on finances, but will probably come later next year.
