I'm thinking this will be as good as me seeing the car in person. Then I can just have the car shipped. I'm thinking a 15hr drive on I5 isn't a fun proposition, not to mention the pointless miles on the car.
When I was looking I drove all over the state and even out of state to find "the perfect Elise". I had a couple sellers make a deal with me and got screwed over because Iccouldn't move fast enough. If this is "the one" you should move before it gets sold out from under you.
