Not paying someone to get it, but going to pick it up yourself? (not knowing exact condition etc?) We're about to go 20 hours round trip (est) this weekend to pick one up and hopefully drive it home, but we're taking all the tools and a tow bar jic.

Farthest up to this has been 14 hours round trip (not counting the blown trans on the truck)

different way, however. I placed a deposit on Julius after seeing only web photos from the owner in Washington DC. I was in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After all of the obvious questions were answered, a deal was struck and a friend of mine and I drove to DC in a rental Ford and picked up the car the following morning. We drove back to Michigan non-stop in about 12.5 hours. The car ran fine, even though it was in need of a valve adjustment. Two days afterward, the mountain insterstates we'd travelled were choked with snow and impassable.

Did I mention it was the first week in March, 2001?

I was a risk, but certainly a great adventure. I'd do it all again in a heartbeat.

Cheers!

set my heart a little too much on an ebay Malaga round-eye - 38 hours round trip to fetch it. Would I do it again? not for a car in the condition I bought.

Still happy to have it though.

Flew in and drove back. Started out in the rain and with the temp guage inching up... reseated the radiator cap, the skies cleared and enjoyed the sound of the M10 the rest of the way.

1300 miles over a 3-day weekend from Boulder, CO to Southeastern WA state with a Moab, UT side trip to drive home my newly acquired Inka '74 tii end of May this year. 100+ degree temps over CO and UT mountain passes in a record heat wave. Low temp. thermostat, re-cored radiator, 5-spd and recent rebuild only saw the temp gauge reach the 1/2 mark twice. Otherwise pegged at the 1/3 mark. 29-31 mpg at 70-80 mph with windows and sunroof open (no A/C). Gotta love it. It's been my daily driver sidlining my '88 M3 ever since.
