There was interest on getting vehicles shipped (trucked) to this years Nationals. Who is all interested in this? I would like to get a quick count.

May be interested depending on price.....shipped both ways right?

I'm torn between tearing out my airbags for the drive :? This may be an easier and cheaper route.

After you ship your car how are you planning to get to Charlotte? Next year if the event is out West ( 8) ), shipping makes more sense to me.

Im sure shipping is pricey, but changing out my suspension to be trustworthy is also.

I understand the concept, I'm asking about the logistics. Does someone have a 12 passenger van or what?

Getting there is not an issue to me as of right now. I was planning on driving out in either the TB or what ever I have at the time.
If I trailer the car I am looking at about $1200. If we can get a good rate on a truck load for both ways it will be better.
I am sure the bigger the load the better the rate.

Without a group deal, shipping vs. towing is probably break even. And you still have to get to NC.

Take a look at what I mean. These prices are one-way.

I know 4 of us are planning on going.
Don, Rj, Dan & myself.
How do you all plan on getting your cars there?
I am leaning towards trailering it.
