If you plan on coming back through Tampa, let us know. I'm sure a few SRT 4 owners will show up. I'm always looking for an excuse to drive anywhere.

Ouch on the air fair. I flew from Chicago to Ft Lauderdale during spring break to get my car and it was only 140. ATA. Not being rude, just FYI. :wink:
No wonder dude it's ATA they're crap. I'd seriously be afraid to fly on their planes. You should hear some of the stories going around...

Dude you have no clue what you are talking about. I happen to fly for ATA. The airline has been around for over 30 years. Mostly charter untill the last 10 years. This airlines flies all over the world, over 400 destinations, more than any other airline in the world. We are the worlds largest charter airline and the US military's biggest charter supplier. We have the youngest fleet of aircraft in the nation, brand new 737's and 757's. We have never had an accident even after flying hundreds of thousands of flights and millions of people. Give me any story and I bet most are a lie. We fly people where they want to go safely and CHEAPLY. If you want to pay more to feel more safe then do it, but most other airlines have had many more problems than ATA. Get your facts straight, I suppose you believe everything written on the enter net too! :roll:

I would prefer not to sleep in a motel...Just an offer for anyone in the southern midwest region...

gdflys don't get me wrong, but I've heard(and experienced) some horror stories about ATA. I was by no means insulting you, so don't take it as a personal insult. I guess I stated it wrong in my first post, I wouldn't be afraid persay to fly with them but I personally believe their service leaves much to be desired. One incident involved a 727 enroute from Vegas that blew a tire, but that wasn't the bad part. The 20 hour delay that resulted while the passesngers were trapped in the terminal was. Don't believe me, well I was one of those passengers. I also know a few people in the industry that hold the same opinion. Maybe other airlines have more problems because they're bigger? In short, you get what you pay for, discount airline = discount service. It'd be perfect for you FF, it's only a one way ticket on a relatively short hop.

Freeway, I'd plot you out a course, but it looks like you'd be going way out of your way and you have quite a drive back.

I guess i lucked out i have an inside source and the dealership will be giving me the friends and family discout (I have a new brother in law :D )...But anyways where were you coming from??? I am just wondering and that time frame sounds like it will work....Arrive at dealership about 3:00 pm thur
5:00 pm have keys in hand
5:01 pm on the road back to fort wayne
2:00 am roughly find a joe blow motel to sleep in
5:00 am wake up and hit the road again...
Also i will be bringing a bunch of cash with me so i dont think gas will be a problem...But then again how much is gas in the south...In the midwest right now it is about 1.60 for reg. unleaded...So how much would premium be...Premium is about 1.80 a gallon right now around my neighborhood...
