    Just weighing my options...
    I really do hope to sell it soon

    What could I expect to pay for driving it down? ANyone made any trips on the Pan-Am Hiway? Should I just ship it? What does something like that even cost?

    Shipping a vehicle across the country like that would run you in the area of $1000.00... you can drive it there for half that, or even rent a wheel dolly and tow it there with a bigger truck (moving van or Burb...) Trailering it would be the best bet, but shipping would be sick...

    You definitely could not drive it down there for $500. Are you aware of what gas prices are like in Central America? I was in Belize a few weeks ago and it was over $4.50 USD per gallon.

    He wants to pick up and move there. His thought was to sell the buggy to help finance the move. He could have said this but I felt like butting in

    Last I heard, Costa Rica doesn't allow riff raff across the border. I guess your wife and the kids should have a good time without you..................... :haha:
