Default Getting BIG items hauled - OT

I was looking to replace my "hobby" car, which finally rusted beyond fixability, and I've found a near twin for sale...

Unfortunately the car in question is in South Dakota, and I'm in PA (1500+/- miles) We called the regular auto transport places, they want $975 - $1500 which would almost double the cost of the car. Driving out to pick it up isn't really much of an option, although it SHOULD make it back (Driving that a long trip with all the unknowns inherent in a just purchased 34 YO car gives even fools like me pause). Also, at 4000 #s and 18+ feet is isn't a little puddle jumper to hook behind a U-haul truck, either.

I guess what I'm asking is does anybody have any ideas on how I could get this beast back without spending a mint or a week doing it?

The other option is does anybody know of a reasonably priced, inspectable '68 Fury (Fury III, Sport Fury, VIP, etc.)located a bit closer than South Dakota?

Thanks guys

I don't know how you feel about doing this, but there are driveaway services. Someone needs to get from S. Dakota to PA (or thereabouts), but has no car, and you need a car transported...they drive your car. I don't know how much they cost, but I'm sure it's cheaper than shipping it through a car carrier. They're usually in the phonebook.
