Need help picking up car (DMV area)

Postby lumbercis » Tue Nov 17, 2009 8:52 pm

Hi all,

This may be a long shot, but I wanted to see if there was a kind soul out there who might be able to help me pick up an alltrac I'm buying. Basically I need a ride from the DC area to West Chester, PA where the car is.

Google maps says it's about a two hour drive one way.

Of course, I'd be willing to pay for gas, lunch, maybe a small "thanks for the help" bonus. Plus, being a local enthusiast, I'd always be a phone call away if you ever needed help with your 'trac.

If there's no one able to help around DC, I'll probably just rent a car and hit up one of my friends to drive up with me.

Hope to see some of you at some meets once winter's over. :smokes:

Later,
J.

The car is there right now waiting to be picked up.

The date is really up to the person helping me. This weekend is a possibility. I don't think many people would be available next weekend due to the holidays. But just in case, I'd be willing to go then as well.

I just talked to the car lot on the phone and they gave me another option which is to have the delivery company they use transport the car to the Baltimore-Washington Auto Exchange (Auction place) for $150. So then I'd just need a ride from DC to south of Baltimore. The only reason I'm kind of squeamish about that is that I would need to mail the car lot the check for the car. So they would have the car, the money, and the title. While I have a signed contract and could probably get my money back if something went wrong, it would be a huge hassle going to court. So I'd rather take the extra hassle of going up there just so I can get the title personally.

Idk, what do you guys think?

BTW: Here's the car: http://alltrac.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=35990

I may elect to go this weekend to Philly area to pick up my new shortblock
from Thompson Toyota. Not sure if I can wedge the thing into my TSX.
Let me look into it. They want to charge me 95 to ship it (ouch). Also a place selling LCD TV's cheap so I may do a combo trip. Not sure where
I would put you ...... :D

Well, I'd only be cargo on the way up. :D Let me know if you decide to go.

Do you guys think there is a safe way to mail them the check and have the car shipped to the Auto Auction? It would be much easier getting a ride to outside Baltimore, plus I'm not too far from home if the 212k oil leaking engine decides to die. :smokes:

Did I mention I could use some help with an engine swap? :twisted:

Well the box will barely fit in my TSX so I am probably having it shipped :(
Dont think I can get the darn thing back out of my trunk without beating up
my car ...

So I am out for this weekend

PM me with your phone number. I think I am borrowing a truck so I can
go get the short block tomorrow. Will know (hopefully) later today. I can
cut up the Penn TP from the car lot and go get the short block :)

It looks like I'm just going to have it shipped down closer to DC. I may need a quick ride over to the Balt-DC Auto Auction at some point to pick it up.

Thanks for the help so far.
