I was glad to see it was in an enclosed carrier - it's more expensive but really protects the car - plus look how they covered the Vette below to make sure nothing drips on it...Ö

They just got out of town in time.....they closed I-70 for a while last night due to storms.

Amazing how different the colour looks out of the sun light.

This carrier seemed pretty thorough but I am certain he did the he-man grip rolling the driver window down like it was an old truck or something and knocked it off track ...when I rewatched my video of the loading I thought i seen it slip, we will see when it arrives , easy fix but ugh.

You have any leftover pieces parts you need me to pick up before you move, or did you already?

Well, I moved and there were 3 small boxes of spares, mostly extra vent duct tubing, the blue standard valve cover, the extra plain grill, spare floor mats ,  a few brake parts pads , some nuts and bolts and rubber plugs and a few wiring extras, not very much left  and so I packed those in the mini for the buyer. I think he made out like a bandit on the sale.  Now I need to part with a boat anchor new Hyundai that is on week 8 in repairs at body shop and computer mayhem.  I think I will take up walking or get a moped.
