Where do I find a cross-country buddy?

I want to drive cross country - but don't have a car! Can anyone recommend an organization, or website where a twenty-something professional can find the same in a roadtrip buddy- preferably one with a car?

Thanks Carla. I just found lonely planet and posted a few announcements. Unfortunately, I didn't find anyone with my plans. I did find someone, however, also wondering if there were any ride-share websites. It seems like it's a need to be filled.
Any more ideas?

www.frommers.com has a Travel section devoted to "Special Travelers". Thought I saw one about people looking for people type thing.

Check out www.autodriveaway.com. You can drive someone else's car to Colorado.

One place to look if you are flexible is at a college near you. There are often kids looking for an inexpensive way to get to/from home and willing to share a ride.
