    No passengers when I have to bring it all though. I used to put the amp just behind the seats and stick the bass hard-shell up thru the T-top in the passenger seat. Had to switch that when I put in a strut bar, not happy that the amp crushes the seat but what can I do.

    '93 Ford Ranger pickup with 187,000 miles - ugly as sin but still going strong...

    Or I throw my speaker cabs in the band trailer and roll up to the gig in my MR2 Spyder. If I don't have my wife/passenger with me, I can just *barely* squeeze in my bass, amp and gear bag into the passenger compartment! If the wife's coming, we'll usually stuff everything into her Honda CRV.

    I have a '01 saturn 4 dr. It barely fits all of my equipment, but I manage to squeeze it all in if I:
    Put my rack in the trunk
    Put my 2 15" speakers in the back seat, with one of them facing sideways with my passenger front seat pushed forward.
    Bass crammed in between the speakers and front seats (as nicely as possible). Good thing I have a hardshell case or it would be trashed.

    There isn't much room left over and I have to be careful not to slam on the brakes or the speakers bounce around and hit each other and the back of my headrest. Yeouch.
