I bought some goofy looking jeep in anchorage alaska and had it shipped in a cargo container on a ship to tacoma. then it rode on a truck to the house.

Ask bigwalton about where his came from and how he got home.

First Car was from Midland- Cincinnati Grandparents old car, driving it home the upper rad hose blew.
First XJ 1/4 mile from my house in Midland. Guy was going to jail in 3 days and needed to sell it.
First Motorcycle Midland -Saginaw found it on eBay and contacted the guy. Drove it home late November in 40deg weather.

Second XJ- Bought off MIJeepers from a guy in Detroit. I got a flight from Houghton - Detroit and got picked up at the airport by the seller. I then drove it to Midland for a business meeting and then back to the UP.

I bought a snowmobile last year from a guy near OshKosh, WI it was a 5 hour each way drive.

I went from Rochester to Jackson to check out and hopefully buy a 88 wrangler. And when I got there me and my dad looked under the thing....... The thing had holes as long as my hand in the frame (from rust) and brakes could hardly stop the damn thing. Just for kicks and giggles we took it out for a test drive and the steering box was shot. You could turn the steering wheel a full quarter turn and it kept going straight. We got back and the guys all, It's a great car, I've driven it into Detroit several times in it :chiefwoohaw: Either he was mentally instable or just desperate for a ride. And the guy was asking $2500 idiot.

that day actually was worth the drive (sorta). Because on the ride back we stopped to check out another one.... I wound up giving the guy a 300 dollar down payment that afternoon. then picked it up the next day. It's also the jeep in my avatar. :)

Me and some friends left from the big boy in fenton on a sunday morning, after seeing a 88 ranger in an auto & RV for $400 in ohio. We drove down in a neon and drove the ranger back. We made it but it was close. That truck probably wasn't worth that much
