I was wondering if anyone knows any race car trailering services. I would like to participate in the Mitty with my Datsun 510, but because of my schedule I will not be able to trailer my car there. Does anyone know of a service that will trailer a car and back. The car is located in Royal Oak, MI.

Thanks!

510s are small cars. Check it as a piece of luggage.

There is also this link, but I'm not sure how dated the information is:

i'll second intercitylines, might be expensive (never priced them myself though) but they transport nearly priceless vehicles all the time.

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate the quick feedback

You can see my cars at www.detroitdatsun.com just click around.

I know of the van lines. I've used Reliable Carriers before. They are EXCELLENT!

I'm thinking more of someone with a truck that's already heading down that is willing to tow my trailer and equipment.

These carriers will only take a car, but for a race car I have tons of spares and equipment to accompany me for a race.

Thanks! Shant

That might be a good way to get down here, but what if the truck is heading to Florida after? How would you get home?
