Can YOU get paid to do the cannonball run?


Yes, you! Or me, or anyone.

Classic cars cost a lot less on parts of the West Coast where rust doesn't exist.

I go to school on the West Coast and live on the East Coast, so I will be driving cross country a lot in order to have my car in both locations. My idea is that I should buy a rust-free classic and drive it home to sell for a profit. This would give me more storage space than my Miata has, for one. Unfortunately, for most '80s cars the price disparity between the coasts seems too little to make up for fuel costs over what they would be in my current 28mpg Miata ($500 one way in the Miata). My question to oppo is this: Which cars don't exist on the east coast and are worth a lot more because of that?

For reference, here are a few contenders I think might be worth a little more to the right buyer on the East Coast.

And here's a lowly graduate edition Alfa. From what I have researched, these were the cheapest of the Spiders. Also, this one has an aftermarket wheel and roll bar which suggest possible hooning.
