Default Orlando-Please Help

Finally found the car of my dreams. A third generation Firebird Formula with BOTH T-Tops and the 350TPI. Another plus is how it is a southern car!!! Only has 95k miles on it also!!

I am wondering, if I were to send the money to this guy, would one of you be able to pick it up and store it for a little while? I am hoping until mid december, but if not, I might be able to make a trip down there next friday. Also, how long of a drivetime, doing the speed limit is it from Orlando to Columbus, Ohio? Or, How much does it cost to have cars shipped over that distance?

Thanks,
Tommy

If I made arrangments, got the address, etc, would you be willing to take some pics for me, and check everything out?

Not a bad idea. I think I might. Now would you think I can get 18 or so MPG at 65?

If your talking about the Cars MPG I would think it would do better than 20 if you keep your foot out of it and drive right. My 98 C5 was getting 28 @ 100 mph the last time I went on a road trip with it.

See your other post about not having a job Don't you have to get your parents permission to fly if your under 18


Think about what your doing you are asking a grown up to take time from his/her busy schedule or down time and look at something that you more than likely have no way of obtaining

Delete this thread and go be a kid and enjoy your youth and DO NOT TRY TO BE SOMETHING YOUR NOT!

You will then earn the respect of others

Sorry if I am way off base then I stand corrected but I don't think so.
