    The buyer of my car used Intercity. They were perfect as far as picking up the car on time and communication with me. The driver of the truck was VERY experienced hauling exotic cars. I had sold another car which was picked up by Exotic Car Transport out of Orlando. I have had very good interface with them and their driver. They have been recommended also; however, I have read some from a pissed off Ferrari owner about how they dealt with him about some in-transit damage that happened to his car (two cars in the truck hitting nose to tail). So, things can go wrong no matter who you go with. I'd choose a "name brand" who has more reputation at stake.

    I'm glad to hear good reviews on Intercity. If this deal works out, that's who I'll probably end up using. Thank you all for the feedback and help so far.

    Mia,
    Tell you what if you don't want to transport what you buy, and if you come through Louisiana I will drive vwith you some along the way. We ladies have to stick
    Together. Ha! :D:drive:

    Haha I got a good laugh at your post broomrider. I certainly appreciate the offer to ride out together but I would disappoint you on the ladies sticking together part. Youwould be the only lady on the cruise. Unfortunately I'll have to transport it since I cant afford to take too many days off work.

    So it looks like I'll be joining the viper community soon. I'm flying out to San Diego on Monday to finalize the deal on the 96 GTS found by Paul. It still hasn't hit me that I'll actually be the owner of my very own Viper in a few days!

    I cant thank Paul enough for finding the car and then test driving it for me.

    Javi

    Just wrapped up the paperwork and I'm officially the owner of a 96 GTS! Gary (Badasp007) kept the car in great shape.

    Once again, thanks Paul for finding the car and taking a look at it for me.

    Here she is:

    That is totally awesome, I anticipated it being really nice. I saw my first one in Reno NV when they were holding a Trans Am race around the MGM Grand and Chrysler had one on display as they had just come out. Absolutely became my favorite modern muscle car of all time and that has never changed, I have two that will be passed on to my sons.

    Mia, looks great! My 96 B/W is at Doug Levin's in Davie and should be ready for pickup in a week or two. If you are available maybe meetup to grab a coffee, food? Would love to see the car in person. Thanks, Bill

    Hi Bill, yeah sure I'd love to meet up. I actually called Doug yesterday and plan to take the car to the shop the following week once it arrives in Miami. I need to have the A/C looked at and want him to look over the car.

    Not sure if you've read the posts before but I don't want to disappoint you if you're expecting a hot chick. My name is Javi...short for Javier. lol.

    Javi, what a gorgeous car! We will all be anxious to see more pictures when it arrives on Thursday. There is a non -VCA event the weekend of May 14,15 that gives you the opportunity to put your car on the Sebring track. I wasn't sure if you were interested in tracking it though. In case you are, here is the link http://pbocflorida.com

    Jim and I will be at the Sebring 12 hours March 17-19 --did you get the info on the VIP tickets from Viper Exchange? We have bought 2 of them --hope to see you in the suite ! Cathy and Jim

    Thanks for the compliment LadyCruzer, I'll post more once it arrives. I didn't plan on tracking the car but I've said that before and didn't stick to it.

    As I mentioned in your email it's tough for me to make it to weekend events due to work so I'm out unfortunately.
