Ok well basically, around September I will be moving over seas and I have basically worked out everything but one thing....

I do not have a garage to store it in, and I don't have anyone 'that i trust/that needs a car'

Now basically my options that I have been given:
Store it in one of those "storage places"
Remove accessories and Sell it
Send it over with me

I'm not in the mood for any opinions on the car its self, I just want some information on the above options, or anything else you know of, if anyone has been in this situation, that would also help :)


Thank you
Ben

What country you are moving too will determine if you can send it over there.

You don't have family you can leave it with? How long are you going to be away?

no offence but if its gonna cost a few k to send its not worth it, probably cost the same as the car is worth. so sell it and just buy a cheap buick le sabre or something over in the US

I don't know...I will be moving...I don't know when/if I will be back

And no one I talk to in my family has room for another car.

Yes you now no longer have to put up with me at meets

Yes well that's what I was thinking... But I just wanted to see if there was another option

the only advantage to taking it over is it will be rare over there :p

Thats what I was going to say...if you just sell it and buy a Buick Le Sabre or Chevy Malibu or whatever...you'll be just the same as the millions of others who have the same cars (in the same way that here in Australia, a VP Exec is hardly unique), if you were to take the VP over with you, it would be an "import" and all. ;) Not to mention that with there not being many Commodores over there, it'd make people think, "WTF is that car??"
