    driving them is the best way... Find out who the local hot rod guys use if it doesn't run. They will be used to moving cars with no ground clearance

    If you do tilt-tray it home, one suggestion would be to cut 4 lengths of polyester or wood round stock- say 30mm in diameter, about 40mm long- jack the car up (REMEMBER- safety first! jackstands before you crawl under!!), remove the suspension spheres, place your cut round stock in the cylinder, then replace the sphere. That will get the car to stand up, make it a lot easier to roll.

    I forget the exact lengths- cut one first and try it. You need to be able to screw the spheres all the way back down with the spacer inserted and the suspension lifted.

    Also, DO NOT wrap anything- chain, strap, cooked spaghetti, what have you- around the rear suspension arms. You will squash the brake piping.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    you've just explained why I've found squashed brake lines on parts cars ...... People using the arms as tie downs! That had never occurred to me before.

    I had my DS moved from the Peninsula to Castlemaine by a contact given to me by Dogboy. Send Dogboy a PM. The driver knew what he was doing, has moved several D's and his price was very reasonable. Punctual and considerate, my recommendations.

    Yah- it's one of those moments where the little light comes on and you hear a 'ding!'. Happens to me a lot.
