GTO mechanic in Sarasota, Fl

I have a 1968 GTO that sounds like it is having valve issues and there are about 110k miles on it. I have had it about a year and I am debating whether to convert it to unleaded fuel anyway. It is a driver and I am also considering electronic ignition and an electric fan. I may even consider a rebuild of the engine. I really need to find a reputable and reasonable mechanic down here. Anybody have any suggestions? I would really appreciate some advice. Thanks.

I have a good friend that used to live in Nebraska, but moved to Sarasota a few years ago. (actually it may be Bradenton that he lives in now). Him and his dad are huge Pontiac enthusiasts. They've rebuilt lots of old Pontiac's, and used to race at the local drag strip as well. If that interests you at all, I can put you in contact with him.
