And here's the problem. My buddy flew out to LA to pick it up and and drive back and is now, as I type this, stranded in Eastvale, CA (I15 near Rt. 60). Fifty miles into the trip it dies on the 15 and - I know its a long shot - we're looking for a referral to good repair place to tow it. Someone who knows G20s. (4pm 8/3/2020)

I'm sorry to use the forum for this irregular purpose, but we thought you would be the folks who know best.
If you have suggestion, his number is 912 996-6296. His name is Jay.

Diagnosed, so far, as a blown head gasket. Locals don't seem to want to handle it.

Apparently two cylinders are leaking into the water jacket. At this point, a used engine may be the best solution. Trying to decide and, if so, find one.

Unless this was a magical unicorn with a Dianna or Wald body kit I’d scrape off the VIN and leave it at the nearest airport and fly home. is Your friend stranded trying to fix the car in some random town?

+1 for Uhaul and car trailer if you aren’t down for torching it and claiming an insurance loss. I had to tow my wife’s stupid Hyundai across the dumbest hottest part of the state.
