Since all the cool non-rusty cars are in Atlanta. I hop a SWA airline (using my free credits) and fly Chicago Midway to Atlanta Hartsfield. I get a GRM/CM Forum buddy to pick me up and drop me off to buy a $1,200 max car.

I buy this car: http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/cto/3299976525.html

I drive back to Chicago keeping in touch with the local GRM/CM family in case I have an issue or problem. I drive it back to Chi-town and turn it into a daily driver/weekend racer. I will need sponsorship to purchase the car so feel free to contact me so I can pass along my paypal account. I am not beneath writing articles in GRM/CM and taking parts sponsorship.

Atlanta to Knoxville to Lexington to Cincinnati to Indianapolis to Chicago. WHO is WITH ME??????

No, no, no. You are "on call" for mechanical help, directions, flat tire fixing, running out of gas calls................you will get a mention in the GRM/CM article.

The funnier the better - I can call you for a Jimmy John's sandwich - when I blow a tranny at a truck stop you can help me remove and replace with a junk yard one.

This here's funny.

Well if you decide to take a left-turn at Lafayette, I'm only 50-miles west. We could probably get whatever you need taken care of. Oh, and I have a couple friends in Lafayette with E30s, so there may be parts available if needed. I believe one friend still has a spare engine out of an IX.

Okay. I will cut over to Route 41 and have you responsible up towards Cedar Lake. The rest is my wife's.

So I am covered from 1 hour west of Cinci to home.

You know I'm only 10 minutes from Cedar Lake.

Not that I want to be involved in your adventure or anything.
