Nice work but...

Who needs a VR4!

Fit all this into my little suzuki 500kg van:

- Full size 4 drawer steel filing cabinet
- Porcelain water tower
- Tower pc
- LCD screen and speakers, keyboard etc
- 100 suspension files
- Toolbox

Admittedly the other stuff was all reasonably small. And had to unbolt the front passenger seat to get a few extra cm's space.

I smell a friendly competition.
How many uni students can you fit in a Galant and a Legnum.

LOL Steve :p

I like Pete's idea - we should have a competition to see who can fit the most people in their cars! What a freaken funny thread THAT would be!

And no midgets aren't allowed... Unless they only count as half a person?? ;)

My current DRIVEABLE record in a wagon... TWELVE ADULTS (18yo-21yo).

Car was right down to the stoppers and the brakes made an interesting smell by the 25km mark.

Front Driver: Me
Front Passenger: two smaller people.
Back Seat: Five Passengers (three sitting back, and two sitting forwards between them in a staggered seating position)
Rear: Four adults (sitting facing each other in a 2x2 configuration with knees around their ears).

This was during "The Falls Festival" where we had to get some things @ Lorne and then drive back to the festival area. We were working as bar staff volunteers in the 2000-2001 festival and it was either make three trips or one. So illegal but arrived ok.

This was done in Seth the Magna Wagon!

gotta love the falls stories!
Hopefully Ill get back there one day! 12 is a good effort! My record is 9 in our XE wagon, 3 in the front row (bench seat), 3 in the next row, and 3 in the boot. It saved 2 cab fares into town as cabs can only take 4 people (unless your lucky and get a 6 seater).

You mean the heavy gear that was strapped in by the handle via the tensioned seatbelt? It wasn't moving anywhere...

Definitely staying out of that arguement...

That's a damn good effort, Gav! I once transported 11 (+me driving) in an old stripped-out Mitsubishi L300 when I was 19, but that's a van so a lot more room. Got freaked out by a tailing cop car doing that too, but somehow they must have missed it looking as though the shocks had been completely removed... :rolleyes:

SA, seriously. It weighs about 1/2 of an average passenger (35kg MAX...I can lift it pretty easily and I'm no muscle bound lad!)...time for people to ease up a bit...far out. And here you are posting about 11 people in a car that couldn't be restrained in any way...:rolleyes:

Noone would say anything if I posted a pic of a 70kg passenger in my back seat hey? Jesus guys...

Hahaha Paul I was staying OUT of it!!

Seriously I've been transporting heavy stuff in my sedan all the time for years, which is really why I'm getting a wagon now. I figure if it's got a seatbelt around it or its on the floor it'll be fine *shrugs*

I can see the benefit of a cargo barrier if you move heavy gear all the time and don't want to take the time to strap it down, but if you can put a belt around it I don't see the problem.

Hey at the end of the day its your car and your gear, so the rest of us can STFU!! ;)
