Hello Forum,
I will be traveling from Chicago to Blairsville,PA on Monday the 19th of December. I have a pretty empty SUV going there. Could help with transport of some bulky clean parts....Just let me know!

David,
Yes in the summer I stay on a northern route...I will probably take Rt 30 out this time. I may try to stop in Galion OH, there is a guy there with 30-40 C3's that he is parting out.

With that inventory sitting there I would be stuck there for hours. If he has a 69 convertible top in decent shape I have a friend that would be interested. If after you visit you think he has a nice inventory of items we should know about please let me know. I love driving.
Thank you Steve.

Hello David,
The person I saw definitely has the parts. He has 10-12 whole cars in his building and lots of parts. I am sure that some of the people on the forum know him, but i couldn't pay the prices he was asking. He said he had a convertible top, but wants $1000 and the canvas is shredded.
I guess it is supply and demand, but i will keep looking. He was a super nice guy and told me the story of his shop and cars. Its worth a trip to see the cars, a couple of mid years and a lot of chromey's. I guess he has just as many or more parts at his farm as well.
If you need more info just pm me !

Default One More Try

I have offered a lot of free travel with my moving parts but to date nobody has chosen to do this so I will try one more time and if no one wants help I will stop asking.

I will be heading from Easton, PA to Atlanta area in late February on I-78, I-81, I-77, and I-85.
From Athens, GA I will be heading down to Daytona, Orlando, and Lakeland, FL on I-75.
I will return from Florida running back up I-75 back to the Atlanta area, then East towards Charlotte on I-85 and either North from there on I-77 or Northeast from there on I-85 to I-95 working my way back to Easton.

I will be attending the Daytona 500 and the Carlisle Winterfest in Lakeland during my visit to Florida having some fun in the sun.

If you need something transported just contact me and I will help you out if I can.

Last offer for assistance.

David Howard

David you are one of the most generous people on this site. My guess is that sometimes members just aren't in a position to use your offer. At some point in time there will be a need and whoever it is will jump at the offer and be very happy for it. Have a good trip Phil

David Howard just delivered on that trip 2wks ago to me here in Athens, GA.
Brought me a new 75 project to work with. Stripped body, rolling chassis and spare frame. Also brought me many items from 3 other great guys in the PA area....John, Ray and Eric.Brought me 6 totes of parts, 2 doors, 3 windows, removable rear window, headlight set up, T-tops, etc, etc.......all for only $500 in delivery cost.

Had an awesome time with him and Bill Van Orman at dinner and with David for breakfast.

This is what the Corvette Forum is all about.....the love of our Vettes brings out the best in most everyone.

And this "Postal Service" is a great idea.

More people should use it.

Think about it next time you have a hood or a differential or a frame to move....

Txs Guys....

Bman (Dennis)

Heading along IH10 from San Antonio Texas to Jacksonville Fla, then 95 South to Melbourne--then return trip--- last weekend of March ---first week of April.

So, primary cities along the way will be Houston, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Mobile, Pensacola, Tallahassee, etc..

Pick up hauling 24' enclosed trailer with Corvette on the eastbound trip (with room for many parts/pieces going East.

Empty (as of now) going West.

Let me know if there are pieces/parts needing transport along this route (can make some diversions to accommodate needs).

Also, trailer is for sale after Melbourne delivery. Some details here:

Let me know,

Good road trip George. I was fortunate to avoid any tough weather and I hope the same will be true for you. Best regards, David
