The person i am buying it from says theres no problems when going foward, but the trannie wont go into reverse. She had a trannie shop take the trannie off and the trannie shop said it needed a new trannie, but maybe it some hydralic pump that gets the car in reverse that went out. When or if a get it home to seattle I plan on doing a 5spd swap, I already have a tranny, rear diff, pedal assembaly, and flywheel for the swap. All these parts I got from pull apart for under $200.
Also I was quoted 700 bucks for a truck and trailer insurance and tax, towing the car from Seattle to sanitonial from Uhual, they wouldent quate me from sanitonial to seattle for some reason.

Would a 90 legacy awd 5spd with 324,000 miles on the origanl trannie, but with a brand new clutch, be better to pull the SVX or the auto with 168,000 miles and a added on coller be better.
Legacy 777 what places would transport the car for around$100 any names, were leaving to night at around midnight, so i need to find a place or go pick up the car and hope it will make it. THANKS

I looked into different options to ship a car and what you find is that there is either open stacked transport, open flatbed transport, and then enclosed transport.
The cheap guys use the open stacked transport. Your car is open to the weather and whatever fluids are dripping down from the car stacked above yours. It probably doesn't happen often, but something to keep in mind.
Also, I learned that the big transport companies just sub-contract out the transport, so you don't really know who you're getting. I settled on this company because they seemed safer and didn't cost a whole lot more than the cheapest company's (I think I paid around $700 2 years ago from Ohio to NC for enclosed trailer). I found out about this company from a big car dealer who used them and knew that classic car enthusiasts use them as well.
I was very flexible for my pick up and delivery time, so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with the pricing or is their standard way of doing business.
Uhaul was going to cost more than that, so unless you have other stuff to carry, it doesn't make sense.
