For the daily stuff... a Mercedes Benz 230E....
All the kit fits perfectly in the boot. Even the scanner hides under the armrest..

For weekends, an Opel Calibra, two door coupe. The boot is just wide enough to fit the sticks - and it takes the whole load of gear.

Fuel is a prime consideration, as I do 10,000Km during the footy season.. the Benz gives me 10L/100km with air on. The Calibra gives 7L/100km but the ride is rough compared to the Benz.. :) That, and the fact that its a rare car here. Only 465 imported.

The Calibra's 2.5litre blueprinted V6, has 180 horses at the wheels, designed to cruise at 270Kmh.... not that ive gone that fast, y'know...

'89 Civic DX hatch with 172K miles on it, torn upholstery, broken A/C, and a weak igniter. Bought it in 2002 for $500 when it had only 50K miles on it. Might not look too great, and might not be too fast, but it was a great bargain.

May 1990 build GMH Commodore wagon, bought from a wrecker all stove in on the front end, fixed and just over 110,000km added since.

I have used a 2003 Toyota Echo 2 door hatch on a shoot. With the back swing-open parcel shelf removed, there is a remarkable amount of useful space. A visiting producer was thoroughly amazed at the the amount of stuff which kept pouring out of the back of it spread out wide on the carpark for hand-carrying to the location.

Steve Rice, who trades as Darling Films here, has a short Mercedes Vito van which does double duty for his set-building and carpentary work. (Wants to do a bit more on his film, goes out and builds a few more kitchens to raise some funds.)

Craig: I'm not jealous or anything. Nope. Not at all. Happy with what I've got. Really.

You buying ANY of that? <grin>

I've got an '06 Cooper S - love it to death. I can fit a good amount of equipment in hard cases in it for light productions as well, but when I require a bit more room I take the '01 Subaru Forrester. I don't like driving it nearly as much, but it gets the job done. If we require more space I take the mini and one of my guys drives the forrester. Good times.
