Topic: Anyone driving to Road America from East Texas?

And if so, do you have room in your vehicle for a small RWD transmission?

EDIT (7/9/2024): The California to Wisconsin leg appears to be covered, but I still need a team from Texas (preferably near Houston or Austin, but honestly OKC or NOLA would be better than nothing) to pick up the transmission at Road America and bring it home.

Original post follows...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Background: Team Valiant Effort in Walnut Creek, CA (94957) has a Mopar A904 push-button automatic that I'd like to have in Houston. I'm trying to find anyone who'd be willing to pick it up in NorCal and bring it to a race where folks from Texas are also likely to be for a handoff. We've already checked the HPR entry list, and there doesn't seem to be anyone from NorCal going.

But all the cool kids are going to Elkhart Lake in September! Surely you'd like to help ferry a rare, ancient transmission from one IoE-winning Lemons team to another. It might even get you a mention in a wrap-up video or something.

Any other helpful ideas are also welcome. Who knows, maybe you're flying from SFO to HOU next week and have room in your packout box. (Yes, Southwest lets you check packout boxes without any additional fee. How cool is that?)

Re: Anyone driving to Road America from East Texas?

I know of a team that is going from Pleasant Hill 94523 (city next to WC) towing their cheaty-ass BMW in an enclosed trailer.I'm fairly certain they would be willing to oblige,but I can't speak for him.Jimmy is currently in France to attend some fancy-ass race,but I'll talk to him in the next few weeks.

Hi Big Bird, Can you let Jimmy know I'm right on the edge of Pleasant Hill just up the street from Lundardi's?  I'm travelling right now, but Spacefrank has my email and can pass it along if you need it. 

Edit, this is the guy with the /6 trans, I'm located at 94597.

First post updated! Jimmy is handling the trip from California to RA, but I still need a Texas team to relay the transmission down here. Houston would be ideal, but I'm not gonna be too picky.
