Driving the ALCAN

Hey - I'm just putting the feelers out.  I have an 85 4ksq in central
Illinois that I'm hoping to drive up the ALCAN soon, perhaps this
summer.  I bought the car as an undergraduate and put about 130k miles
on it.  It has 200k miles now.  Since moving to Alaska about 4 years ago
it has been sitting at my brother's house.  Anyway, my brother is up to
putting it in decent mechanical condition, but I'm leery about driving
it for the big haul because I am by no means a mechanic.

I'm looking for someone who is more mechanically savvy than me to drive
up with me to Anchorage.  I would take care of all expenses, but I'm not
sure that I could foot the bill for the return to the lower 48.  This
person would have use of the car to explore other parts of Alaska and
digs at my apartment.

Another alternative, is anyone planning to come up the ALCAN this summer
in their own car that I could drive with?  Perhaps we could have an Audi 

TIA, Karen
