Newbie looking for LA mechanic

I'm considering buying a 1989 Esprit SE, but have to admit I know nothing about the cars so maybe not a smart move but I have wanted one for years.
I drove it yesterday and the gearbox crunches when shifting into reverse, and its pretty notchy in the forward gears, with first being particularly sticky. Take-up on the clutch is fairly near the bottom (fully depressed), not sure its a clutch adjustment issue. Anyhow, anyone experienced this on the SE, and does anyone know of a Lotus mechanic who could do a pre-purchase inspection in LA?
