Are you aware of Kayak.com?  Also, several carriers don't list their  
fares with any of the search engines; Southwest is one of them.

If I were in your shoes- having it transported or driven in this case  
would be worth the $.  Look at it this way- it'd be -really- bad if  
the car broke down and you were late back, right?  And what does  
Murphy's law say about that sort of thing? :-)

leaving, and take care of any issues that might crop up along the  
way...if you decide to go that route.
