Congrats! This is by far the best way to enjoy buying a car. I’ve done this a few times - one time flew to Dallas and drove home to New Orleans, next time flew to Dallas and drove home to Los Angeles, and the latest time flew to Montana and drove my FJ home to Connecticut.
I had been looking ALL over the US a couple of months ago constantly looking at airfare vs carrier costs. I have driven 20+ hrs cross country for a few cars. Wound up find a great one 40 miles from home.
