I may have an empty trailer going from SW Wis. to Oklahoma.
If you need something to go that way, PM me. SOON.

Did you find an original, rust free Oklahoma Nova SS stashed in a barn and buy it for almost nothing from an elderly widow? :) I think there are very few of those stories left anymore.

I was scanning the classifieds and Auto Trader while in Tulsa last month, but didn't find much.

I found mine a few months ago from an elderly lady that received the car as a wedding gift. She could no longer drive so she sold it for $1800! It has 30,000 original miles and the only damage was some surface rust on the pass door from when she scraped it slightly on her garage door and didn't repair it. I plan to hold onto it until I can't drive anymore.

No, it's the widow's grand daughter. Her grandfather bought it new from his friend Don back in Pennsylvania who had a dealership in the 60's and 70's.
She said her grandfather didn't feel much like driving it after his dealership friend died in a plane crash. She doesn't have the internet so I don't have pictures. I'm just taking a chance it's something I like and it's in decent shape.

Sounds like a reasonable risk for what could be a clean old car. A Nova I assume? What year? When I was still living in Dubuque we drove to Tulsa 2-3 times each year and brought cars back several times. Not sure where in OK you're going, but DBQ to Tulsa in only about 10 hours so it's a pretty easy drive. Good luck, I hope to see some pics of your new ride soon.

Went to Norman to get a Cutlass.
With the two hour delay going thru backroads and small towns because I-80 was closed near DesMoines for a bad wreck it took just under 13 1/2 hours.
