Well, Tom, it's never too late to learn.  If you don't have the time to take 
an auto mechanics course at a local tech school, get to the book store and 
start reading.  Then, start with simple stuff like oil changes, plug 
replacement, valve adjusting, etc.  Doing the normal maintenance on your LBC 
will give you the confidence to try repairs when they become necessary.

It always amazes me when my family asks how the little car is, and I tell 
them what I have done to it recently.  They can't believe that a mere human 
being can actually replace a starter motor!  :-)  You will get a good feeling 
when you do your own work.  And don't forget, we are always here to help.
