I'm interested in a car that is in Hesperia, California.  Is there anyone near there that would look at a car for me for some compensation?

thanks

Damn...its about 100 miles for me. I'd do it, I just don't know when I'd be able to go out there.

Hmm, Paul, what is it? I'm a bit farther away than Ponch, but I've been known to swing a trailer down that way.... icon_smile_wink

I think at lunch time i'm gonna call some photographers right in Hesperia and see what they charge to go take a bunch of pictures of the car for me.  That sounds like a better plan than asking someone to drive for hours to look at it for me.  I'll let you all know what i find out.

They may be able to take pictures of the car for you but if I were you, I'd get somebody to look over the whole thing yesnod

If time is not of the essence, I can swing the adventure this weekend.

Sound like you either want some west coast artsy photos, or you just don't want anyone to beat you to a deal on a car.   lol

nooks nice.
The molding down the side of the car needs to go.

If that car has the front plate as well the set will get you a few hundred bucks on ebay since CA included years up to 69 for the YOM program.
