What car do you use to haul your gear to games?

Yeah, sticks do that to most vehicles. As for the getting in and out comfortably, with my 6'2 frame, I hate having to crouch down into a seat, trying to get my long legs under the wheel without jamming myself, so annoying.

As for the getting in and out comfortably, with my 6'2   5’7” frame, I hate having to crouch down into a seat, trying to get my long legs under the wheel without jamming myself,  carry a large print copy of “War and Peace” to sit on so I can see through the steering wheel and over the dash - so annoying. (Won’t even go into having to use pedal blocks I stole from a 3-year-old’s tricycle)

What else?  Top down all the way baby .....................

C5 Corvette for when I need to get there in a hurry. 

Already stopped in Toledo and saw the Gladiators out front. Well, until we were chased off the hill. I plan to trade in my JKU in the next two years for a Gladiator too. Should be a good hockey h

My wife has a Subaru. I'd rather ride my skateboard than worm in and out of that car.

I took mine in a 98 Viper last year just to see how much fun it would be and it wasn't. Still fit. 

I throw it in my 3500 work truck 4 door long box and drive. Very simple 

Previously I had a 99 Corvette, with it having a hatch, it was actually easier to get the gear in than my current, more family friendly car. 

Vipers are definitely cooler though.

Really liked the 99 generation vettes. A lot better to daily drive than this pig. But this one is something else

Yeah, I'm a sucker for pop-up headlights which is why I love the C5 Corvette. If I get one again in the future, it's very likely that it would be another C5.

Behold, my combustion carriage, the 2008 Toyota Avalon (pictured next to a friend's seven) 

The Avalon was free, so I'll be driving it until the wheels fall off and when that happens, I will put the wheels back on and continue driving it. Purchased with 110k miles in 2013 and currently has 198,800 something miles and has taken me to nearly every single game and practice. I can even fit my nearly 6 foot long alpine snowboard in the back, it's pretty neat.

You're right about that! I remember the first time I saw one. I decided I would have to get one one of these days, there's nothing else like it! They're even more fun to work on because you can take 99% of the car apart with a 8, 10, 12,14, and 20mm socket.

320 WHP at just a hair over 2700lbs is crazy!

Heck, my Jeep is the same thing. All metric.

Most vehicles are really. My Tacoma is all 10, 12, 14mm sockets. Fiancee's civic is the same too.

I know my dad has vented his frustrations on his F350 as he has to carry both metric and imperial tools to do almost anything.

I don't want to derail the thread but I've been thinking, is there any chance that we could get the Steve Passmore blocker review up on this website? It is of great historical and cultural significance!

I handed it off a few months ago. I'll see if I can get one. We do need an update.
