  1. I agree with most of the other posters. It doesn't matter in the least what he paid or the fact that you know what he paid. This is probably what he does for a living & if it was me, it would make no different that you knew what I paid. A car is only worth what you want to pay for it. Your statement ...." I do realize that traveling to Auctions, hotels and meals, transportation both ways, storage, title work, etc has a cost associated with it and I certainly don't begrudge someone from making a profit and running a business" Tells me you have common sense & understand al
  2. Even though our local post office & employees bend over backwards for us out here in the country, the USPS overall is completely inept & definitely needed the overhaul that probably won't happen now. I have been ordering a bunch of stuff for the 67 Toronado I am currently restoring + all the normal stuff for me that I order every couple of months. Seems like most come USPS & it is beyond comical to watch the tracking of the packages! Example ...I ordered some nutritional stuff from New Jersey, same order every couple of months, it normally takes 3 days to get here (5
  3. Hi Roger, I cannot help you with any car related Ham nets as I am not active on the radio. However there have been several threads on the different car forums I am on & it appears there are a pretty good number of folks that cross over between the two hobbies! I am WB8SVW & have had my license for 47 years now! Got my Novice Ticket @ 11 years old, General Class at 13. Dad is N8WS & Mom is WD8ASV God Bless Bill https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/nationwide-single-car-transport-hauling-open-or-enclosed.614419/
  4. I pray I never get that financially embarrassed!😁
  5. It is probably a good thing I don't have any more transports out west this year! 😁 The Chevelle Wagon with the aluminum head big block peaked my interest as well as the Chevelle Conv. I could also see coming back to Ohio with a trailer full of doors & fenders!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving Peter & Everyone else on the forum! Please remember to be grateful for all you are blessed with today. Enjoy the day with as many family & friends as you can. Peter, I am just around the corner from you in New London Twp & have been past your place many times.....One of these times I would love to stop & say hi as well as see your beautiful collection! God Bless Bill https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/nationwide-single-car-transport-hauling-open-or-enclosed.614419/
  7. Congratulations Steve! The thrill of the hunt/search is a lot of fun, but 5 years is too long!!!😁 God Bless & Happy Thanksgiving Bill https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/nationwide-single-car-transport-hauling-open-or-enclosed.614419/
  8. I noticed that Rock Auto sells authorized reprints of factory service manuals for about the same price as you would pay for a tattered one on Ebay. I just bought a complete one for my 1967 Toronado. It was $40.85 tax & shipping included. Don't forget to join the V-8 Buick forum.... A great group of guys. http://www.v8buick.com/index.php God Bless Bill https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/nationwide-single-car-transport-hauling-open-or-enclosed.614419/
  9. Hello Everyone, Even though my business is officially closed for the season to spend the holidays with family & friends, I have a car that I want to purchase sitting in Central Nebraska, so I will be offering a transport spot from Ohio, Michigan, Indiana out to Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri or Iowa. Since this will be for my car & the seller is in no particular hurry, this transport can be anytime between now & the end of December. I will set my dates according to the weather, all I need is a 2-3 day window. Again since this is for my car, I
  10. WOW, it really cleaned up nice! I have been following along with this thread, the older I get the more I enjoy the more "oddball" kind of stuff (not being negative). I have had so many of the Nova, Camaro, Chevelle, Cutlass kind of cars & still have some that go fast, but cars like this Hudson are sooo cool!

  11. Welcome to the forum Bob! We are blessed to have some of the best folks in the world in our hobby & yes a lot of knowledge can be gleaned from the older gentlemen who have been doing it even longer than the 40+ years I have. As with every forum there will be a few "Outsiders" that don't really fit in, they are easy to spot & just try to ignore them. As a transporter, I get to meet so many of these folks & they quickly become my friends. Enjoy the forum. God Bless Bill https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/nationwide-single-ca
  12. I would hope since his question was asked 9 YEARS ago....He would have had it handled by now!😄 God Bless Bill https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/nationwide-single-car-transport-hauling-open-or-enclosed.614419/
  13. Respectfully Sir, Featherlite would be well within their rights to charge extra to modify one of their trailers to do something it was not intended to do. We are talking about car trailers & I doubt very much someone would lay out the $8,000.oo for an open Featherlite to haul a Bobcat around job sites getting all beat up when they could spend $2500.oo for a steel equipment/cargo trailer instead. I have had a Bobcat on my open Featherlite several times for myself & a good friend without any issue, but have no idea how big of one you are referring to . As far
  14. I guess it depends on what you consider "Heavy Classics" If you have a 5500lb car on a Featherlite 3110 that weighs 1475lbs from the factory like mine with 6 lug Dexter Tor-Flex 5200lb axles, 15 in aluminum wheels & 10 ply E rated tires...You will NEVER have a problem. I can tell you that with all certainty since this trailer has 1.3 million + miles on it & I can count on one hand how many times I have blown a tire in the 14 years I have owned it. Obviously I don't always transport a 5500lb car, many times they are lite like this Nitro Funny car, but you get the idea! The
  15. Like Ed said...It is all about the money. If you have the money & want the best, buy what I will be buying if & when I replace my 24 ft enclosed, an ATC. Expect to pay just under a thousand dollars a foot as they are the absolute best these days. Since I put so many miles on them, I cannot use a cheap trailer.
