    Okay..... here's the deal.... I need a car brought back here from NY. You need your stuff to the east coast. Take Mini Me and a car trailer loaded with your stuff to the far reaches of the universe or where ever your moving to, and then on the return trip stop and pick up my car on the east side of NY state. Pays $500 but you have to leave this week. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif whaddya think ?

    I hadn't really considered that....(and I'm not sure that Mini-Me would go on the first trip)....but if you're serious, I could probably coordinate a way to do it.

    When does YOUR car need to be picked up in NY?....is it a "junker" that might break down, or is it a new Lamborghini? If it's a Lamborghini...you have a deal, but gas is extra!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    PM me with details, and maybe we can figure something out!

    Where did the car come from and how much was it to ship it to the US?
    You pay for my plane ticket, rental truck, trailer and gas money and I'll tow it to CA.

    Well if I knew you were doing that I would have sped up my shipment.
    I am shipping my 4wd van from Lebanon to new york and driving it here, I could have bought a trailer there and brought it for ya.
    Anyway when I get it to NY I will let everyone know so If someone wants anything from there I will help out.

    Too bad you don't want it driven here I would have done it for ya.

    Tori,

    Have you ever heard of a shop called "Mini Mania"??

    They are right here in Milpitas and seem to do restorations and cool hop-ups on Minis.....before the whole "retro" thing ever happened and Austin Powers made them cool for the masses......

    How much did you pay for it?
    You can get them really cheap in Lebanon, and you could probably get one hopped up for racing, they are very popular there but not expensive.
