"Mercedes center takes restoration seriously"
By Chris Woodyard, USA TODAY
IRVINE, Calif. — Nate Lander, a 24-year-old car mechanic, describes himself as "kind of anal retentive."
At the new Mercedes-Benz Classic Center here, that's a job requirement.
That's because this is no ordinary garage. Mechanics here — actually, they are called "restoration technicians" — are supposed to fuss, tinker, scrutinize and dissect some of the most glamorous old cars in the world. Or at least cars of owners who want to think of them as glamorous.
