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

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

Well I was going to say that my car isn't like any of these but it turns out @stackem30's is pretty similar. Mine's better though:

2008 Dodge Magnum R/T (charger wagon)

That car is my dad's car because I can't drive yet.

Here's my actual first car once I can drive:

1972 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale

*this isn't a picture of my car, just the same model. Mine has no paint on it and needs a reupholstered interior*

I would also like you to picture this: Your in high school. In school full of Camrys and Altimas there's you, with your 7.0L V8 Convertible (boat), driving to school every day. In a couple of years, that will be me.

I'm thoroughly surprised that I'm the only truck owner so far.

I'm from Texas and we don't have a truck. Controversy at it's finest.

The first 5 years I lived in Switzerland I didn't have a car and took the bus 2-3x per week to play hockey (not team bus, regular bus)

Back in October I got caught excessive speeding coming home from a late ice session.  Immediate roadside Impound... 7 days the car was impounded for, had to take this to 4 games.

I also have one. I’d probably be better served with a suv but growing up in the middle of nowhere it seems like you had to have a pickup so it’s what I’m used to.

I use to bus all the time, too, prior to having a car.

Crazy questions around Seattle , a city not so savvy with hockey equipment,  generally:

- is that equestrian gear?

-how many bodies you got in there?

-are you on a swat team?

-what's that weird crap?

-do you play for the Thunderbirds? (No, I'm not 17, thanks).

-are you an NHL player? (Yeah,  I play for the Sharks. We play the Canucks tonight.....it's gonna take a while, but I'll get there.)

Plus you won't look like a suburban mom in that.

Very true, though it is probably one of the most posh pickups available these days. I still feel like a poser from time to time even though there's always stuff in the bed and I have a trailer that gets towed around from time to time.

My bad. I forgot to slather my post in unnecessary slang.

That truck is straight clean. Those edges are sharp and the colour of the bike is too fresh.

Betcha he celly'd hard when he got that.  So much tendy swag fit in it.

I've also got an X5, sometimes me and my son practice on the same team together, and it fits us both together with gear as well.

yeah i can fit me and my brothers gear 

i tend to take the second row down to put my gear just to make it a little bit looser fitting and have a little more room when its just me

I used to think my Mustang convertible was the worst vehicle to haul gear to the rink in (and it's still not good) until one of the guys I play with had his car break down, and he had to borrow  his dad's second car for the day.  I'll let the picture speak for itself...

Oh, to make it better?  In true British sports car fashion the trunk won't open, and the luggage rack isn't secure enough to actually lash anything of value to.

I saw the other day that the NHL officially started releasing "Top 10 Cellys of the Week" video compilations — you know, to go along with goals, saves, and hits — and I aged 58 years on the spot.

Jealous of your cars? Nah (though it must be nice to be in a climate where you don't have to worry about road salt accelerate rust and corrosion)

Jealous of @SaveByRichter35's beer fridge? Hellz yeah.

True about the road salt but there's something special about playing hockey in the -20s and snow that feels like a white Christmas. Just wouldn't be the same. I play summer hockey and it never feels the same even though they are both indoors and both at the same rink.

Best part of summer hockey is the parking lot after the game. Drinking beer in the sun with shorts on is much more enjoyable than freezing my nuts off.

I would like a separate area for us goalies with convertibles. Perhaps our own label rather than "advanced member".

You can go hang with the station wagoners.
