Need help picking up car (DMV area)

I talked to the shippers today. There's a slight chance he could bring it down wednesday assuming my check gets to the dealership by tomorrow. If not the shipper will bring it down after the holidays.

I'll post up when things are more nailed down.

Thanks guys!! :smokes:

It's been a little delayed due to having to get my license changed to DC and then getting insurance. Just a lot of little paperwork things to take care of. I should be making an appointment for the shippers to pick it up and bring it down here this week.

My bigger concern now is where I am going to get the engine swap done. I wanted to do it myself, but finding work space in/around DC is proving to be a huge hassle. I hate to do it, but I might have to have a shop do the swap for me. :bangshead:

Okay! I'm tentatively scheduled to pick the car up next Wednesday (pending confirmation from the shipper guy) at the Balt-DC auto auction.

So I need help with two things:

1) A ride from DC (metro station of your choice) to the auto auction. I've got tow service if it breaks down, so no need to follow me anywhere.

2) I need to figure out where I'm getting the engine swap done. Since it doesn't seem that there is enough interest in renting warehouse space right now, I have a couple options. First is find a self-storage place willing to let me work on the car in the unit. If any of you have done this before and know of a place then let me know. Second idea is to find a shop willing to rent me a bay. So send me the names of any local shops you have used in the past and I will call them and see what they say. Third option is to pay a shop to do the swap. I'm going to farm out the wiring to Dr. Tweak, so it should be a pretty basic "remove engine, put engine back in" swap. But it would help if the shop in question had some experience with Toyotas.

Thanks guys!!

Hey guys!!

Well, it looks like this is finally going to happen. My car should get delivered tomorrow to the Baltimore-Washington auto auction here:
http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf8&ie=UTF8&q=baltimore+washington+auto+auction&fb=1&gl=us&hq=washington+auto+auction&hnear=baltimore&hl=en&view=map&f=d&daddr=7120+Dorsey+Run+Rd,+Elkridge,+MD+21075-6491&geocode=Cb_pMqQZ3Y6uFSDBVQIdKcts-w&ved=0CA4Q_wY&ei=uEtOS5KAIYOANofRvaoL&ll=39.174432,-76.756183&spn=0.75054,1.231842&z=10

They are going to leave the keys with the attendant so I can pick it up after hours (the lot is open 24 hours).

I could still use a ride from wherever is the closest metro to you to the auction lot (I live in the capitol hill neighborhood in DC). As I said before I have AAA so I don't need to be followed back or anything. Should be about an hour of your time, and I'm willing to buy dinner.

There's no daily charge for the parking, so I'm looking to go get it Friday evening or Saturday. Let me know if you can help out! :D

Mission accomplished! A nice dude from the mr2oc boards gave me a lift.

Pics to come once I get the registration taken care of. Although it's in kind of rough shape right now. Has some decent rust right behind the rear wheels on the quarter panel. Nothing money cant fix. :P
