buying a 1996 993

Car Purchase

Model: 911T, Year:1969, Mileage:120,00, Type of use:Street use only
I'm considering a purchase of a 1996 Cabriolet 993, but am leery of the valve issue, as well as any other potential mechanical issues (car has 83,000 miles). Can you please recommend a reliable mechanic, in the Costa Mesa, CA area, that I can bring the car to before purchase, and will they be able to detemine the extent of the any possible valve issues by putting it up on a hoist?Lastly, I plan on using this car as a daily driver (approx 15,000 mile/year), so any idea what my approximate maintenance costs will be and what the expected life span of these cars is?Thanks in advance for all your help.Sincerely,MJ
