    Google for auto carriers. Figure about $800-$1000 to ship it.

    Drive it? I drove from Texas (Arlington) to Jacksonville in Florida to ship a Blazer home to England. It was a good road trip.
    If it's driveable I'd drive it!

    I shipped 87 Blazer from Weatherford to Camp Lejeune, NC for $850. It took a little less than 36 hours, and my truck rode on the top rack of the carrier. The people whose civic was under my truck were not happy about the oil on the car from my truck! I used a brokerage called Angel's.

    I would love that drive. I just did a colorado to socal drive in the truck thats in my sig. I love doing that but with my current work schedule I cant get the time to fly to tx and then drive back here with enough "uh oh" time built into it. Sounds like 1000 bucks is about what I would pay. I'll try the google idea
