Camaro Road Trip!

So i have orders out of AZ and im debating of how to get my car to NY while im overseas. My wife thinks i should drive my car cross country which is about 1500+ miles. Im thinking this is a bad idea, roads are crappy, miles are gonna add up. I got less than 3k and i have a 13 SS manual. Its 1k to ship it or i could drive it.

What would you guys/girls do?

Well look at it this way, it is gonna sit once you get it to NY. And you're gonna be away from it for a while. So I'd say drive it and enjoy it. Besides, at the mileage it will be once you get to NY it will still be low miles. And that $1,000 can go to something useful too...

well depends on the wife. I did a 700 mile trip with a friend and his wife and daughter. We had to stop every 30min so they could pee and get more soda literally. I can do 700 and only stop when its time to get gas.

IMHO, depends on what time you have. If you're not rushed, then drive it with the wife and make a fun trip of it. who cares about mileage. You bought it to drive it! If you're rushed, then ship it.
