I bought the Olympic Blue '74 1.8 that Brad at 914 Ltd was advertising.
After tons of hand wringing trying to decide on a shipping company, I decided to go with a known quantity and contacted InterCity Lines. These are the folks who transport for Wayne Carini, Jay Leno, Gas Monkey. Not that that was the determining factor, but it sounded better than working through a broker and hoping for the best, particularly after reading A LOT of frightening Yelp reviews... Yes, they were about $400 - $500 more expensive than the average quote I got.

Anyway, InterCity quoted me 3-4 weeks before they could pick it up, which was fine as I'm in no hurry and Brad was more than willing to keep it inside for me until it could be picked up. But suprise! They called and said they had a cancellation and could get the car today!

Brad to the rescue again as he was able to make a last minute change work!

Brad just called to let me know the car was picked up. Then he says:

"There is something you need to know..." And I'm thinking, Crap, here we go.
Brad continues:

"On the truck with your car are cars headed to Canepa. A 4 cam 356, a 934, an RSR... each of the other cars are probably in the $1M range..."

So my l'il ol' 1.8 is riding to its new home with some impressive relatives.

Thought you'd enjoy what I hope is an exciting beginning for Oly B!

I plan to introduce him/her (not sure yet as we haven't formally met) to folks attending WCR 2017. See you there!

Congratulations, a very fine car indeed. When dealing with Brad, you are dealing with a number one class act.

So awesome!

Maybe they'll unload the RSR at your house instead. LOL

Enjoy the 914, someday I will join in the fun.

Scott, the driver, is a very cool guy. He says "that's the Carrera 2 under the cover, but go ahead and climb up and check out the 962 that's riding up front..."
So I did! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Couldn't resist this view. Looking back over the Lowenbrau 935 to see my 914 just peeking over the rear fender. Almost the same color! And what a view my car had on the ride out!

A quick trip across town and the new arrival is home and dry!
Big thanks to Brad at 914 LTD and InterCity Lines. Use both with 100% confidence! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

Very cool.

Did he have to move the 934 or 962 to offload the 914? It's always fun to hear them run.
