1997 Dodge Grand Caravan.

 

I can fit my 4x10, 2x10, and head all behind the backseat with it up. I fit both basses on the side along with me "stuff" bag and still have room for 6 more people. :D

 

$25 for 3/4 tank :(

only about every 1.5-2 weeks though.

1983 Eagle SX-Theres nowhere these things can't go.

 

I recently had to get rid of three of my cars because I just moved and don't have the room. These two are my babies so they had to stay.

2000 Mitsubishi Lancer, which has a Evo 6 Engine and gearbox in and been quite lowered, Its not the ideal bass players car, but I can get there quick

 

I can fit a 4x10 and 1x15 in back seat, this has ripped the skins off the doors and I have a few little dings on the side of the car from loading and reloading. As for the boot, I fit two basses, amp and a ww2 ammo box (I carry all my leads and pedals in)

no beer until July 1

Ok RockwoodB here goes,

 

The Golf is 50" wide across the back seat but only 38" wide between the rear wheel wells

The area behind the front seats to the back of the vehicle is about 5' and from the back of the vehicle to the dash about 7'

 

The main problem is that when you fold the back seat forward it sticks up at a 45 degree angle. If you tip the back seat all the way forward so that it rests against the fron seat, the useable space (front to back) is reduced to about 4'

 

So, I don't know if it will be workable for transporting an Upright but you should check out the fit for yourself.

 

Of course you could always take out the backseat completely but you have to unscrew the hinges from the floorboard and that might be inconvient

 

I hope I have described this clearly enough to have been helpful

 

Best of luck

Thanks alot, I think you kind of just confirmed my suspicions that it's not big enough for my needs though. :(

It's been painfully distracting the past couple of days walking to classes because I seem to notice every wagon and mid-size SUV that drives past. So far I've been paying close attention to the Saturn Vue and the Subaru Forester...

 

When will they make a car with great storage capacity and great fuel economy for under $15k!?!?! Detroit/Europe is against me!

Check out the Saturn Vue. I really like mine. It would handle your URB also. The rear seats fold down and the front passenger seat folds down too. You can carry something up to 8' in length.

We have a Volkswagen Golf GTi. It's around 7 years old and I've had it since it was given to me as a company car when I was still working for The Man. I bought it from the company when it was about 3 years old (and took extra salary instead) rather than have it replaced with new one.

 

When my wife and I set up in business a year or so later we thought money would be tight so we sold her car and kept mine. Effectively that meant my car became hers - she uses it about 10 times as much as I do. But we drive very little - after 7 years there's about 28,000 miles on the clock.

 

Our income is now as good as when I was a wage slave but I've never been tempted to go back to being a 2 car household - I drive so little that it's more sensible to use public transport, including the occasional taxi if necessary. But we probably will get a newer car at some point relatively soon.

I have room enough to store a couple of basses and my wt-600. The big issue is the heat coming from the 12 cil. 600hp engine.

 

Apart from jokes that's the car I've been working on at Maserati Racing for the last 16 months!

I've got a '89 Mustang 5.0 LX hatchback. Not as fast as Stiooch's vehicle, but I can haul both my 1X15's and my 2X10 and my basses and the amp, and legally (sorta) get to the gig on time...

 

....and I haven't had car payments in many years, a big plus.

 

...Still, with 170,000 miles, it may be time for a replacement...

 

...or not.

It has almost enough room to put my head and 2x15 peavey cab in the back of it, but not quite. Trying to find a smaller amp because of it.

 

Other than that its a wonderful car. Smoke grey with a 4 cyl and manumatic.

I have two vans, both GM products,

 

1991 Chevrolet Astro Van (used as cargo van)

1995 GMC Safari Van (used as people hauler)

 

If we need the full P.A. hauled to a gig, I use the 1991. If house sound is supplied, I take my own rig in the 1995. Also, if the band all travels together, the 1995 pulls a trailer with the equipment while the guys all lounge around polluting the air and criticizing my driving.....

N reg (1995?) Ford Mondeo 1.6 LX. It ain't quick, but it's big, quite comfy and I can fit a pair of 4x10s in without it feeling like everything is on top of me.
Free your mind and your ass will follow.

My car is beat-up blue 1989 Chevy Cavalier with a huge dent in the driver's side, a cracked rear-view mirror (the result of a slapshot gone awry), a "No Goal" bumper sticker, and lots of rust spots. She sounds like a tank and looks like hell, but she starts up and gets me where I want to go. Also, I can park her anywhere in the city without worrying about anyone messing with her and I never have to get out of the car to move a shopping cart; I just ram 'em out of the way because it's not like anything is going to happen to my car's appearance.

A bass player must have room for his equipment, a nice set of subs, and a few basses of course. I don't think a Golf can handle all that. 86 GMC Sierra, American Racing Wheels, lowered, brand new 350 with a 4 barrel carb pumping at over 650 cfm. Also a nice expensive battery to power two inverters for those on the road gigs. About the only thing we couldn't fit in the back was the cymbals!
