What is a good school to learn how to restore cars? on 2000 Mitsubishi Diamante

Besides actually taking a car apart and putting it back together. I can't afford that. I want to attend a mechanic school/program in Los Angeles that is highly acclaimed...academically, but don't want to regret going there, such as Wyotech, UTI and other highly priced schools. I would most likely like to work on cars as a hobby and not a career.
