Shipping a Car

Re: Borrow a convertible (Atlanta)

If no one comes forward from this forum, I believe that Budget Car Rental offers convertibles. Probably not vintage, collectible sports cars, but they would do the trick.

Re: Fiat 124 versus MGB driving impressions (long)

Richard Ridge mentions Todd Rice in his post above. What a great Fiat mechanic he is. Unfortunately he seems to have disappeared. Wish I could find out about his whereabouts.
