Reputable rotary mechanic near Birmingham, AL?

A family member is thinking about joining our rotary community with a possible FD purchase. He lives near Birmingham, Alabama. Does anyone know of any good rotary shops in the area for all around maintenance / support of a RX-7?

First hand experiences always appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

If it is not extensive maintence or problems most of us will be more than willing to help out, and probably charge less than a shop. Now if it comes to changing turbos or trouble shooting problems a few of us can help out but finding time may be a problem, so it may take a while. Most local rotary guys seem more than willing to teach or help out.

There's enough local support in the area to fix or @ least determine most problems
