That's cutting it a bit too close personally. I'd rather hand the thing off to a known local party and be done with it. I've NEVER made a successful sale on craigslist. Never even gotten any scam calls or anything. Craigslist exists as a one way street for me.
You could buy something local to you, prep it and leave it with someone in the Chicago area until the rally. Just an option to eliminate one step of uncertainty.
Sure, that was probably part of the plan. Especially If I couldn't pawn off parking it at a friends house before the event. (i'm at capacity at my place unless my Miata finally returns to the rusted earth from which it came.)
My big concern is abandoning a car 3,000 miles away with my name on the title. Scrap could work. but would still require some form of local assistance to discard and get to hotel/Airport. I just figured someone in SoCal may be interested in flying up to drive down. Which would be nice and clean and easy. One signature, one notary, and I can work on my Deep Vein Thrombosis packed into a too small for a transcontinental flight 737 steerage seat.
