Looking for an Eagle mechanic in East Stroudsburg PA area
« on: August 22, 2012, 01:39:14 PM »
I parked my Eagle about 4 years ago when I started having trouble with it. I now want to get it running and driving again but don't have the time to do myself. If anyone knows of a reliable mechanic in the East Stroudsburg PA area, who knows a little about Eagles, I would be grateful for referrals.

Thanks,
Andrew

Captspillane, one of the forums most knowledgeable Eagle fanatics is pretty close to you. You'd have to talk to him, but he may be able to help you out. Or could probably have your Eagle taken to his Sanctuary and sit until he could work on it.

My fiance graduates from East Stroudsburg University with a Master's degree this December. She's only up there once a week this semester doing her capstone class, but one of these times I could bring her and visit you during her class.  How many minutes of driving are you from ESU?

I'm about 30 minutes, or 2 hours from ESU, depending on how I answer this question. That is, I live in NYC, but have a weekend house up in the Poconos...Winona Lakes.

Sarcasm aside, that's a great offer! I imagine her class is during the week, so I could arrange to take a day off work and meet you up there. If you are willing to do that let me know and we can continue this conversation further off line.

Thanks much for getting back to me!

Andrew
