If things calm down around the house by then I'll try and make it. I'll trailer the Vette down and go from there. No way could I afford the gas to drive it that far.

:cheers:

I wasn't going to bug Tims' ass over this, BUT, how is trailering a car cheeper than driving it??? trucks don't run any better mileage towing a vette/trailer/dollley behind, DO they??

I don't know about Tim's chevy diesel but mine gets 13-14 with my tractor and trailer behind it and thats around 10,000 lbs. now i know my vette back there weighs nothing close to that nor does it have the wind resistance of the big ol'e tractor with a cab. and my vette gets nowhere's close to that in fuel mileage.

I run an average of 18 with my 1 ton Crew cab dually. That Duramax is pretty sweet. I do have to admit, it does drop to around 12 MPG when I'm towing. Makes no difference if there's a 3000 pound load or a 19,000 pound load. It's 12. And diesel is running at $2.75/gallon. I might get 4 MPG with the Vette and gas for it is $6.50/gallon. Unless your calculator works different than mine, I think I'll trailer the Vette. but thanks for asking..:rolling:

50 guys jumped his ASS over that comment.....:D :D :cheers:

I got rid of my dually and my other tow rig is not up to the task so we are gonna go 4 it! (I do have two car haulers)We made it last time but I must admit that I needed to give my butt and eardrums a break.But hey,thats what its about right? I would take a truck too just for backup,but I will enjoy the trip in the vette.Not sure where we will stay yet but we might campout this time I'm not sure.

I wish Hippy's were all that Eureka Springs was full of. Last year we went into our favorite country western red neck bar for happy hour and all we saw was rainbows on the wall. :lookinup: The town is going :toilet
