Wow! Not good. I just found a rental car that I can drop off in Kansas City and 
extra hour North so I could do the one way truck and trailer thing.
Thanks again!

 The towing vehicle extends Liability ONLY to the trailer or towed vehicle. (so 
if it broke free and hit someone else that would be covered)
 No physical damage coverage at all, zip, nadda on your bus.

Thanks everyone for all the replies and the generous offers! I forgot to 
mention I wasn't to keen on driving it myself - call me a wuss but I have never 
driven anything that big before for that distance with such a valuble payload.

 A guy answered my ad on Uship.com but said he was busy and knew a 20 yr old 
that he would trust with his own trailer (wich he uses to make a living) to 
move it for me for $785.00 - the catch is he is not insured (except for auto 
insurance - that would cover whatever he towed?) and has no CDL license or DOT 
records. I doubt I could rent a truck/trailer for that price plus gas - 
actually I priced it and I am looking at 700 for a local  rental both ways.

I might take you up on that offer Gerald. I need to find a one way car rental 
though. I am taking my body man and a friend that could probably push it out of 
the barn himself so that would make it expensive to fly.
But still, I would rather drive it back than drive a trailer up and back.

Sammie - I am trying to get a hold of Randy as we speak.
Thanks again everyone!

I don't post much but lurk when I can! I have found a 1959 23 window been in a 
barn since 1971 for a reasonable price. I am trying to arrange transport from  
Missouri near the lake of the Ozarks to the Dallas area - 500 miles each way.
Do any of you have  any suggestions? I have used Uship.com and put an ad on 
Craigslist but have only gotten one response. Most of the shipping companies 
want a 4 day window. I need a 2 hour window on Memorial Day weekend.
It's a long shot but I thought I'd ask.
Thanks in advance.
