That's Los Angeles area. Too far for me, or I would drive there and take a look.
I bought several cars using Internet, but I always flew there with cash in hand. The only time I bough a beater for my son -the actual condition exceeded the worse expectations.
I agree that buying CA car you don't have to worry about rust, but how would you know the car is holding compression on all cylinders? Even paid inspection is not going to check it out.
Than if you want the car protected during shipping the cost is going to be well over $1000. That can buy airfare, gas for the trip and nice vacation on the way across USA. It is beautiful country out there
