    Bzzzzzzt. Wrong on the model.

    And the bike(s) are in the back. Both wheels off and upside down they ride back there perfectly and no stress on the headliner in or out. Bike racks ruin your gas mileage and I would rather ruin it by gassing it in between walls to listen to the glass packs.

    Safari. Chieftain. Catalina. Whatever.

    1957 Pontiac Wagon.

    And if you are going to call out my mistake, you should provide the correct answer.

    Gawd I wish. No, not yet....but I'm working on (slowly) selling off half my bikes to fund another Early Bronco (ideally a Stroppe).
    So eventually yes.

    Short of a Stroppe Baja, that would definitely fit the bill. Looks like an automatic though. Nothing I hate more than automatic transmissions.
    Did you leave a note on it for me?

    I didn't get an interior shot of the load unfortunately and the exterior shots are blacked out by the window film.

    I switched vehicles however and so now the bikes will be a bit more exposed,

    but more color coordinated.
