I would one way and drive back...
Magnified, we're not discussing a taxi here, but a Challenger. They deserve better treatment.

I think its interesting that your car would get all dinged up trailering it o
ver actually driving it down the road😜
Depending on the trailer, tow vehicle combination, the tow vehicles tires can kick up a lot of rocks. A buddy bought a used car and towed it home on my equipment trailer, i warned him not to do it. Or at the very least mount massive mud flaps on his truck, and build a shield on the front of my trailer. Well he chose to ignore me, arrived home with paint chips, cracked windshield, and a lot of cursing. If you tow it, rent, borrow, or buy an enclosed trailer.

That's why the shield is there. This trailer was open, so my primary concern was weather - but at that time of year everything was forecast to be smooth. You run a risk of something thrown high clearing the shield, but that's basically the same risk you'd run driving it home on the highway yourself. Mine was not only not pinged, but was spotless when it arrived.
