Hey Everyone,

Any tips on searching, buying, transporting a new 914's from other states, meaning you can't just jump in the car and take a look at it to inspect and drive/tow it back?

Last several I have been interested in have been too far to drive for an in person inspection. Probably would take a plane trip to see the car and would need to ship a car. Never shipped a car. I don't want to waste anyone's time. Most of the cars I have been interested in have been 8-14hrs away. How have you guys done it? What should I know. Any comments are appreciated. I'm Located in Northern California.

Backstory (if it helps): Bought my first 914 almost 20 years ago when I was 18. Joined 914World before that. Still recognize a bunch of folks here, but your older. Bought a second one a few years later, but fell off the wagon. Haven't had a drive-able 914 in 15 years. But I'm getting back in the game, except this time, I have an adult budget (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif). I'm on the prowl for a 914 I can enjoy without a lot of work, while I figure out if I want to restore/sell my original car. So I am looking at the mid-to-high end of cars that are well-sorted out and mostly done with some upgrades. Work keeps me too busy to invest in a big project and I miss enjoying the car.
