Anyone in Corpus have a trailer and mind helping a guy out?

Wondering if someone could be a HUGE help to me. I'm supposed to head down to CC to pick up my 84 toyota from the Insurance Auto Salvage lot (off of Agnes st.), from when I rolled it down at port a, but I ran into a little SNAFU.

Me and my buddy's truck and trailer can only make it down there Saturday afternoon once he gets off work. The problem is, Insurance Auto Salvage is only open Monday-Friday 8am-5pm, and they refuse to have someone meet me there on Saturday even if I'm willing to pay them for the trouble of coming to work for an extra 5 minutes.

Sooooo, I'm wondering if some generous helpful soul would mind helping a guy out? I would just need someone to pick up the Yoter (would need a flatdeck trailer probably), and park it at their house till we could make it down there Saturday around 4-5pm. I would be more than happy to pay you for your time and trouble if you would mind helping me out.

No payment would be required to get my truck out of the Lot, I just need to call the place and let them know who'll be picking it up.

So if anyone could do this for me, please just send me a message or call me (Clint @ 210-364-1251). Thanks so much!

Oh and a pic of the yota so you have an idea of how big it'll be:

I know we've fit it on a 6.5' wide trailer, so it's probably real close to that. Yota axel is 55" wide, and they're 12.5" wide tires on like 3.75" bs rims, so it is probably right on the 6' wide mark.

Sorry I would have contacted yall sooner. Got a late night call (hate being on call) and went right to bed after I got home...

Well if you could get to CC by or before 4ish, I'd say you got yourself a deal partner. I know it's 157miles from the lot to my driveway, so it'd only be about a 320mile round trip from cc to sa. Think $200 would cover your fuel? (just to give me an idea of what to have waiting.)

If you could do it, I'd love you long time (figuratively of course). But yeah, if you still want to do it, leave a message on here or give me a holler (call or text 210-364-1251) and we'll talk logistics.

Felt the same exact way with my 96 12v. Couldn't KEEP the dodge parts from falling apart, but the motor ran true and strong for near 300k before I sold it.

Well the big deal about getting it this weekend was so I could take it up to my buddy's ranch up in stonewall where we're gonna be working on it, since I'm going up there anyways to watch him propose to his girlfriend.

But since it fell through, there's no big rush now. My buddy is gonna take off down there the Monday after next (25th) since I'll on call next weekend and won't be able to go myself until the weekend of the 30th.

We'll see what happens.

Hey sorry, I've been out of town and away from the computer since Sunday night.

Well I found out today that the lot is indeed going to be closed Monday for memorial day, so if you would still be able to pick it up for me on Friday Big, and hold it for my buddy to come pick it up Monday, that would be insanely awesome.

I can check with them tomorrow and see if they have a fork lift or some other way of getting it onto a trailer. I'm not sure if I left them with a key, but if you have some jumper cables, it might be possible to get it to start up. The oil from rolling it should have drained past the rings by now, and I don't think anything happened to the motor during the roll, but I know the battery is dead. Not sure how easy it'll be to drive it up on the trailer if you are able to get it to start, what with the cab being bashed in. But if you're still game, just let me know! I seriously appreciate it.

But here's a picture of how the inside is:







A lot might depend on how high your trailer is, and how long your ramps are.
