We are working on getting more orders to fill out the truck for the NW, we currently have the truck half full and need to get 3 more orders to get the truck going, I would estimate about two weeks of so.
:cry:

Man up, Marine. You won't be driving it for at least 6 more weeks anyway.

Also re that fapping thing? Apparently baby gravy is as bad for a car's paint finish as birdshit so be careful when you have your special moments together in the garage.

I had been hoping to drive it on March 3rd for the local FinalGear meetup. :(

The weather will probably be bad anyway though which would have prevented me from bringing it.

Joking aside I know that's weather dependent.

Look on the bright side. More members for the second local meet when you do get to bring it! :dance:

Any companies move it by train? That might get it there faster. Just keep BigJ away from it :p

No, everything is by truck here in America except very large shipments. For example car manufacturers ship via train, but not personal people.

Contact a driveaway company and have someone drive it out to Portland.

I almost was able to keep a straight face!

Was this intercity? Get someone else to do it. Should take a week TOPS for any transpo company worth its salt (and your money).

Yes, Intercity. They are out of Massachusetts and I guess they don't get this way too often. They don't want to drive a half-empty truck all this way due to gas prices.

I'll get some other quotes to see if I can get anything sooner.

Try FedEx/Passport.
I hope you're kidding. They can't even manage to deliver a cardboard box from Amazon undamaged. I would so rather wait a few extra weeks for the peace of mind that the car would delivered unharmed.

FedEx just books through Passport, they don't put cars in a giant box and ship them in the FedEx planes. No, Passport transports cars in trucks like everyone else. In fact, they have no service personnel in common.
