how fars the drive? why not try and do a road trip and tow it yourself?
I just towed a sport nautique i imported into australia from Brisbane to my town and thats 2200km. Dunno what type of car you had but i was towing with a v6 4L hilux, im sure you've got some type of yank tank for towing prob get ok fuel efficiency, i got about 500km to a tank (not sure what that is in miles). Saved myself a few grand on transport and had a road trip instead....except mine was nothing like the movie unforunately, but i did kill a goanna (lizard)
