Okay, so it's just an econobox, but my new Toyota Matrix is really useful for carrying gear. I previously had a 95 Nissan 240SX--nice car, but my 410 cab kept crashing into the windshield when I would brake. This car gets around 30 miles a gallon highway and it fits my Ashdown rig in the back without even folding the seats down! Here's the car. I got the windows darkened to make it hard to see what's inside.
