Nice car. John you think you have low mileage? Well. In 2004 I bought the exact same car of course new 2004 model. I put (Im australian so Ill do the conversions on google) 5000 miles on it, when I came over to Japan for what I thought was only going to be 3 months. Anyway thats now 3 years, my mother has been driving my car on weekends pretty much since I left and taking care of the servicing for me. I go back to Australia next month to my Audi with a massive (drum roll) 9500 miles.

Oh and also taking a Toyota ISIS back from Japan - with the seats out it fits as much as a small truck

I've had a 2002 Acura 1.7 EL since December after freelancing without a vehicle for a few years. Definitely not a powerful car, but I managed to put a camera, tripod, 50-pound light kit, sound package and sandbags in the trunk and could have had 4 more people in the car with me. 30mpg in the city, 40 on the highway.

Most of my shoots are done with company vehicles. We have a 2006 and a 2007 Dodge Calibre. They can hold a lot of gear but the overly thick segments around the windows make it really hard to see what's around you. The rear view mirror is like looking through a tunnel! I'm not sure what it's rated at but I don't think it's very good on gas.

'74 Mizutani

Excellent mileage, lockable, waterproof, cargo capacity: 250 lbs. Carries gear to locations motor vehicles can't go or are not allowed. This is going to be very handy this year in Eugene at the Olympic Trials.

A 2003 Chevy Suburban! Z71! Love it, had a 2001 Tahoe but it was a little small for all our stuff. Use it for road trips with 4 guys and hunting gear and camera gear. Some trips we have to use a car toper as well.

I drive a 2007 Mini Cooper S Type with JCW tuning kit. I love it although it is hard to get a ton of equipment in it.With everything in pelican boxes, I can get my full kit in there pretty snug. You have to take the back seats out of course but it makes a pretty cool light production vehicle.

I have driven "Nigel" since 1997. It has 250K miles now and still runs good. It is built like a brick outhouse and has plenty of storage. It has carried me and gear to Central America three times, all over the US and Canada over the years. The roof rack provides extra storage, sleeping and once a refuge from a bull buffalo. Extra battery feeds an inverter, winch, and HF SSB communication . I will drive it until I die.

'94 Acura Integra Hatchback. With the back seats down, I can carry a heckuva lot of stuff. In addition to the shooting thing, I play and teach drums and, believe it or not, I can fit 2 complete drumsets in this car in the back alone (again, with seats down). With the seats up, there's not much room for any normal-sized human anyway, so I don't feel bad sacrificing the seats. This ride is enough for a full lighting, camera, and sound package, with a sound guy/gal too. And I can still see out of the back.

'94 Jeep Grand Cherokee (140,000k miles). The V8's doing nothing for the environment or my wallet for that matter. Rear seats are almost always down to allow for either the dog or camera and lighting package. Plenty of room for a Porta Brace 'Coffin' (wheeled production case) and the rest. Had a great run but I'm afraid my romance with Jeep products is over.

Chevy Suburban

My production vehicle is a second owner 1990 Chevrolet Suburban. I built a slide out tray with high sides to hang my tripods, ladder, boom pole, etc. with velcro straps. Misc items go in heavy plastic crates, cameras and light in their cases. Dolly, track and crane all fit just fine.

1988 Toyota Camry AWD. (Important in Alaska) It just keeps running!
1992 Suburban K2500 (Alaskan sports car)
1999 Suburban K1500 (Alaskan luxury sedan)

So we spend more than $100 a week for gas, there's always room for everything and everybody.
