    Hi everyone - new here. Premium ‘02 Inspiration Yellow Bird with full yellow guts. 8,900 original miles. Literally in the wrapper. One of 129 ordered WITHOUT the hardtop. As such I’m looking for a flawless top in white preferably.

    Welcome KILR, thanks for joining, I'm on the lookout to get you that white top. The hardest part about hardtops is the location given the high cost of shipping them. You're downstate Illinois, correct?

        Yup - I’m in the Peoria, IL area. Since the car has such low miles, I don’t want to drive it too far to pick up a top. I could always rent a Uhaul for a day if one is found in a nearby state.

            Bob look at shipping Via Greyhound Bus. I just shipped a package 62X48x20" to Denver for $128.00. Mine weight 85# but their weight limit is 100#.
            They are a lot slower than Freight Carriers or FedEx ?UPS but half the cost if you deliver to Greyhound and the receiver picks up at Greyhound.

              I’m not sure if I’d trust a Greyhound with shipping of a flawless top. I’m paranoid.

                A hardtop is over their weight limit plus the weight of a crate or however it's packed

                    Parted out two Cadillac Allantes in my youth (mid to late 60s!) did Greyhound for large bulky items. As Jimr sad, it worked well. I'm betting a hardtop would fit in the luggage area!

                        Well, I'm a little late to the party, but here I am! This is more of a posting test for me rather than a comment on previous posts.

                          First I need to find him a white top, then I need to sell it to him. Then we could have relay but it would be very short as he's only a few hours away 😀

                            That would be the shortest relay in history.
