But I'm beginning to feel that little bubble of excitement :-) !
Don't stop now!! Where has that little bubble of excitement led? How did your baby fare on the ship?

We're strongly considering shipping a '55 or '62 Flying Cloud plus our 1982 Toyota (rgt hand drive) diesel Troop Carrier to a port in Europe for an extended tour (1-2 yrs?), does that seem reasonable or a pipe dream to you who have/are shipping overseas? Cost?

Somebody help me out here! We would ship both back home: no desire to sell overseas.

We've not wanted out GT delivered just yet as we are away from the UK ourselves until month end. Ours has been collected from Denver, loaded on ship 12/2, and should be waiting for us in Southampton month end. It cost us around $4000, half for trailing Denver to Ft Lauderdale, half for the shipping. With Carex.
I'll let you know how good they were once we see it!

Don't take life too seriously, not many of us are going to make it out alive!
