FL to NY for my 04 cobra, we flew into JFK airport and I took it from there. Would have been 1,200 miles back to FL, but my wife and I had set it up to drive to Virginia, and put the car on the auto train. The train let us off in Sanford FL and we drove home from there. Total mileage we put on the car was about 500. The car only had 3,600 miles on it so I did this to keep mileage down and turned out to be one of the best trips ever. We had a blast. My last road trip for a car, was for my son, he was 15, at the time which was 13yrs ago wow does time fly. I found a 93LX hatch on ebay in Kentucky, advertised to have 75,000 miles on it and we agreed on $3,500. This was a 900 mile trip back home. The night before I was set to fly out I call the guy to make sure everything is set to go. He says yes but the heater core is leaking and my father is in the process of putting a new one in. He says it will be ready to go when you get here. The next day I fly in the guy pulls up just as I walk outside of the airport, and the car, was not as described. The whole lip on the back of the hatch was full of Bondo, the title said the car has 175,000 not 75,000 and the whole dash was out no electronics. No gauges, didn't know if I had oil pressure, no gas gauge, temp or volts. I'm saying to myself what a mistake never again and I have a 900 mile trip back home. I already paid airfare and didn't want to disappoint my son he was so excited for his first car. I got the guy to take another $1,000 off the price. We had to got to a parking lot and pull the dash for the gauges, turned out they never plugged the harness back in after doing the heater core. So that at least gave me gauges for the trip home. Now mind you the guy drives the car, to the airport, with no gauges, and was never going to mention it. I caught it just as I was about to pull out I look at the fuel gauge and it's on E. That took another 2hrs to fix and now the thought of driving home with a 175,000 miles on this car sight unseen. Well the trip home went well, except for my nerves, constantly watching the gauges not knowing if it's going to overheat, is the belt going to last and so on. Just very unsettled. The only thing I noticed on the trip home was one of the rear axle seals was starting to leak. All in all it turned out to be a great car. We replaced the hatch had it painted and he kept it for many years. If you ask me, would I ever do it again with an older car, my answer is NEVER. I'll never forget this trip or the experience. GL which ever way you decide to go should you purchase this car. I hope it all works out for you.
