Want me to contact the shipper heading out to GJ to get my Ghia? He's leaving Kentucky tomorrow or Monday empty for KCW.

**EDIT** just texted him...he'd love to make that haul from Madison to KCW. Name is Ray, Ginger Duck Transport. (843) 509-6598

That would have worked great if I hadn't already paid the shipping broker. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Maybe the broker can call him and work something out? So close to you and making the trip empty as is. :-k

The car was hacked a bit to a U.S. Standard. Sema pockets were welded shut and American bumpers added and blinkers. I welded the blinker holes and the PO opened up the sema pockets. Happy to have it home for u guys to give it love. Roll that 62 shop-vert too. Haha.

Happy to help. I guessed it was a very long shot being open transport with you moving with two verts and a fully restored car and forewarned the hauler as much.

Alright with Bret wanted to get pats bay. I have a truck and trailer. If anyone needed a car transported to KCW or along the way, that would be good for me. I can go north over 80 or south to Vegas up 15.

Any takers? I'm not a professional, I'm just thinking a trip to KCW would be fun around the time of the races hell even around the Utah classic. No rush and no clue what to charge.
