1,100 miles? Get the auto transport. I will be cheaper on you in the long run than doing damage to the car. Besides, if you take out the driveshaft on an automatic, you will lose all the tranny fluid out the tailshaft. You would have to leave the driveshaft in and tie it up so it won't slip out on the highway.
Hands down the best way to go other than having a buddy drive it......
