What car do you drive?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Tenchu, Jul 29, 2004.


  1. I can't help noticing whenever I'm browsing the amps forum that one of the most important qualities of a cabinet is whether it fits in the boot of the car. It seems as though every bass player has got a 1988 Honda Civic.
    Therefore I'd like to know which cars all of you drive.


    (ow yeah: Has the opposite ever occurred? I.e. Has your rig ever determined the choice of your car? :cool: )

    I drive a '97 Dodge Dakota Sport, and yes I made sure my rig fit in it before I bought it.

    1985 Ford ranger long bed with V6. Bit of rust, but it's very very good for hauling gear. I use it for work, play, and daily driver. It's the official gig mobile. I have a topper as well if we are traveliing, and need some rain cover.

    But then again, I don't gig, so it technically isn't my gigmobile. :p

    I drive a 1993 Nissan 240SX fastback. It's a squeeze, but everything fits on the extremely rare occasions that I take any of my equipment out of my house.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Though we also have a Pathfinder and a Suburu Forester, my pride & joy is my beloved bus...

    99 Chrysler Concorde. Boring, but my whole rig fits in the trunk.

    I drive an Avalon XLS, four door. Very roomy trunk.
     
  11. Love my Suby - mine is an 02 WRX Sedan.
    My combo just barely fits in the back seat. But usually drive my wife's Acura MDX to gigs.

    I got me a big ol Chevy Tahoe. I wish it got Honda Civic gas mileage. I could fit my rig three times if I had to and I use an 8x10 cab. :D

    I'm GASing for a 99-current Camaro.. But I doubt it'll fit my stuff.
     
  18. 1995 acura integra (aka honda civic w/leather seats), my bass will not even fit in the trunk, before we went and bought my amp my dad suggested I measure the trunk to make sure it fit...barely.
