There’s no question that the number of students in the U.S. taking Latin has “dropped significantly” over the past century or so, despite a plucky comeback thanks to J.K.

If I had bought a Gullwing or Blower Bentley, I never would have used this method. But it is a lot more affordable when shipping less valuable collectibles. Either way, one needs to apply adequate insurance for the journey.

And if using RORO, get your seller to take photos of the vehicle, right at the port before it departs. All angles of the outside, as well as the interior. This way, you have some documentation of it's condition right before it left, just in case you would need to file a claim of any damages when it arrives.

I've shipped my '69 E-Type back and forth to the UK in a 20ft. container (solo).  Back in the 70s, I had a TR6 shipped over from UK to Baltimore on a RORO.  The crew has your keys to load the cars onto the ship at the departure port and to drive the car off at the arrival dock.  Guess what.  Keys were 'lost' and crew made off with 'souvenirs' from the car.  Won't do that again...
