to me there is no bigger thrill in the world then taking a classic car to pick up another one, back in June my cousin and I took my 77 250 miles one way to pick up his 77 Firebird he purchased. you should have seen the looks we got on the way back! ive only taken a new car to buy an old one once, that a year when I picked up my vette, it was in pcolia and dident want to hurt the engine if something was wrong with it, so I took my truck and trailer.

Good luck! Take 1977L48's offer and go get the car because I have been really tempted to buy it myself. :-)
I don't know 'bout dat (New Orleans Language 101)...the '34 gets 23mpg divided by 2 equals 11.5mpg pulling a trailered car downhill (Ohio is UP north). As for buying the car----Pleeze don't beat me to it---I'm gonna check his F/S thread right now....and I KNOW you wouldn't crush someone's lifelong wittle dweam
