Cheers 1burgfish,  rang the shipper today and they can arrange insurance for when car is on the boat, $180 US every $7k value of car.

Thanks moparelwood, very kink of you to offer a place to stay. High chance we taking the high roads.

My parts list is coming together. Thought I would get seat covers from Legendary, but the 10-12 week wait is a speed bump. Rang Dante's and eventually had a win, Interior kit for $830 , last set of 71 legendary seat covers, carpet, and headliner . Get rear quarter 440 billboard as well.
Will get steel frame dashpad from Roseville
Seller is going to see whats at the Nats swap meet for  4 speed parts.

Big thanks for the heads up on the sale moparelwood,  just spent $250 on lots of small items, emblems, glove box liners, blank keys, etc.

Lot of big items exempt but otherwise brilliant. Wanted to get the 440 rear quarter billboard but was a 1-4 week wait. May ask seller if he will receive it and then send on to me in NZ.

Cheers
Tony

We have booked a rental car from Economy Cars for 2 day so we can drive to Mo-par City and back. Have booked into a Motel 6 on Sat. night. Plan to book truck and trailer from Uhaul next.

Any tips on finding good budget Accommodation on our trip ? do we try and chase Promo codes, join a loyalty scheme with a motel group ? Want flexibility so we can drive for shorter or longer depending on what there is to see on the way.
 Any help appreciated.

I travel for a living so I book allot of hotels, on a number of occasions I've tried walking up to the desk to get a room & have been quoted a price much higher than the online price..... I walk outside, grab my phone & go to Trivago... Then go right back inside & get my room for half the price or less...

 :2thumbs: I like that plan mate, will try it.
Rental car booked for first 2 days so we can get to Mo-par city and back.
Had a Motel 6 booked for Sat. night and truck pickup place sorted. Then a spanner got thrown in, found out that the U-haul depot was not open on a Sunday :banghead:, why didn't they tell me this. Had to find a depot that was open on a Sunday, turned out to be back across town, taxi fare be over$100 for both trips.
 Wife got on the net :chatting: and did great job to find us a very nice hotel, with free shuttle and only $10 taxi to U-haul depot :cooldancing:
Had chat to a guy here in Nelson who makes regular trips to LA and brings back cars, he also done a couple of USA road trips. Got some good tips.

If you need a taxi in the future try Uber. My experience shows their prices to be about half of a regular taxi.

Thanks RCCDrew,
 Friend and I are keen to catch any motorsport event on and there is a sprintcar meeting on Sat19th in Indianapolis . About 10-15 mile out of the city, so Uber might be the go.
