Sorry, Paul! I was offline a couple of days.
To make a long story short, I got a call last Monday from the driver, who kept putting me off for "another week." Every week it kept being "two weeks out." So Friday my son and I drove out to get the car (624 miles each way). I'd scheduled a U-Haul full-bed trailer and towed it with an F-150.
Of course, the car isn't running, so it took some manpower to get it on, but we did. I put a couple of extra straps on for added protection (frame to frame). When we got here, we pushed it off the trailer (me driving) and into the garage. To be honest, it all went really, really smoothly, and my son and I had a great time talking and eating low quality fast food products.
The car rode very well, and with no damage of any kind. We couldn't have asked for nicer weather. I've even already returned the trailer.
If you'd still like their number, I'd be happy to give it to you. Their gear sounded pretty good to me, and it was no problem handling an inoperative car. But apparently moving cars around Labor Day is a big deal. Here locally is the huge Labor Day auction in Auburn (as in "Auburn-Cord-Dusenburg"), but when we picked the car up, there was an huge auction/car show there. So it must be the busy time of year for these transport guys. I believe they would have done a fine job, but the waiting was getting old. Besides, sometimes it's fun to get a wild hair and just take off.
As an aside, coming back I'd noticed a small billboard on the side of the road that mentioned a Corvette museum with free admission, about a mile off the highway. I figured "why the hell not?" and we pulled off to see what was what. To my great surprise, it was the home of Mid-America Motorworks, whom I've purchsed from several times over the past 17 years or so. To say Mike Yeager has a nice collection is an understatement.
I was floored, but the best reaction was from my son, who'd never really seen a mid-year up close. He fell totally in love with a 1964 built for the GM CEO at the time (more than a few "special" options on that car). I had never seen a 1954, and Mike has one that blew me away... 3000 miles total and as pristine as the day she left the factory floor. Completely changed the way I feel about C1's. It was simply gorgeous.
He also has the CERV I if you're familiar with that car. He even has the car used in "Corvette Summer" and a LeMans winner. And he must have 5000 Matchbox and Hot Wheels Corvettes lining the back wall.
I'd never seen so many in one place.
So, if you happen to be driving through Effingham, IL (junction of I-70 and I-55), definitely stop in. Well worth the brief jaunt off the freeway...
