Exactly...My 73 Charger is my daily driver...I put almost 200 miles on it Monday... I drive it no less than 60 miles a day… I bought it to drive it not to keep it in the garage… All new suspension and all new brakes and it has no problem on the highway around here keeping Up/passing any of the other traffic… It’s already got a beat up Bondo body… why wouldn’t I drive it? Ha ha Ha aside from getting around 12 miles a gallon…It tells you allot about the hobby when so many would rather throw the car on a trailer or a transporter... These things we play with are cars... They were meant to be driven... If you can't keep an old car running long enough to drive cross country maybe you should consider a new Mustang...

Call Pam, this is direct to the owner/operator. no broker. great people to work with, covered transport. takes a little time but they treat the car like its your own. and they don't have alot of stipulations to boot.
I was also going to ask where. I live in Pasco Washington (southeastern part of the state) and am very familiar with that part of Oregon. Have friends who live in Milton Freewater. Love the Wallowa lake area.North Eastern most corner of Oregon. Familiar with the area? It's pretty remote and not a lot of people.
I don't know how I missed this topic all week? I have a buddy that bought a 68-300 in S.J. CA. when I lived near Sac. He flew out and drove to my place as a shakedown for a long trip to Springfield IL. a 2K+ trip. It overheated as he pulled in town about 200 miles from the shakedown, we spent 3 days going over everything and I had the luxury of using the A.F. base hobby shops lift for a couple other small jobs. Flushed radiator, oil change, plugs, install Pertronix, filters, tune & tweak, brake fluid flush & adjust brakes, install cruse control, top off rear end juice. He got 20 MPG's in a 440 for most of the trip and it drove great.
I, myself bought a 66 Rambler American in 81 that was a driver but needed some work so I could go from Fresno to Rapid City S.D. I had it for about a month before my trip and did everything to prep it before hand. Way up on the Great Divide in WY. and got hit in a snow storm, guess what? Heater/defroster don't work, blower works just no heat. I roughed it to Rapid City only to find out that the heater core was plugged. Did a flush & back flush of the core, you wouldn't believe the amount of rust and crap came out of the core. No leaks either. If you can wait for better weather, it will make life better if your not broken down in cold, shitty weather. Good Luck
