My head gasket blew in my 98 Impreza 2.2L on the day I planned to sell it. Big shops want $2,500 or more. I would fix it myself but I have no time as I am trying to sell my house and my wife and two boys can't survive with out me. It's in great shape and worth fixing. I know it will be a huge loss if sold as is. Can anyone recommend a mechanic in or around Whatcom county that could fix this for less?
What price would a "mechanic special" go for?

Thanks for your info. I would love to have an sti swap or better yet, an sti but only in my dreams. My kids are expensive! I will sell it as is. It's a great car but only as good as it's head gasket. Bummer. Crossing my fingers that my other cars hold up well.
