    What do your rides ride?

    Sow us some pics of your Rides ride. Mine is a 88Volvo 240DL SW. I paid $300 for it. Put a $500 bike rack on top, and put a $1000+ bike on top of that.

    While I can't contribute a pic of my ride (I don't think I ever have), that is the best looking $300 car I've ever seen...

    My "ride's ride" is a 2004 Nissan Frontier crew cab, it's got a Yakima Beddy Jo in the bed which will happily hold two bikes.

    Not my truck, but the same model and color (mine has a full size bed):

    The "Short Bus" is one hell of a vehicle I must say.

    I'd post a picture of my car but I don't have a digi at this time so I can put it in words for you all. 2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS. Yes it is not the WRX, the first comment that comes out of most people's mouths, but it does the trick. Let this be a warning to the Ricers...

    Shown here in river guide mode, but my first choice is the wife's minivan where the biking guys and bikes can all ride inside with great comfort and top 30 MPG at 70 MPH. Otherwise drift boat gets swapped for SportWorks hitch rack, and Yakima box gets moved east for a pair of bike mounts.

    I'd say I have a pretty good looking $300 car. It just doesn't run yet.

    However, the bikes ride on my >$300 Acura.

    1990 turbo. Approaching 252K. Can't get rid of this car. I've been wanting a newer Saab for a long time, but nothing goes wrong with this car. Orginal tranny, turbo, everything. Just routine maintenance. Drives very well, and carries everything I need.

    The mountain (hill) in the background is fun to go down. I think I"m the only one in the area that rides a MTB 4 miles up just to fly the 4 miles down.

    No you don't! Your SAAB with 252k on it is 10 times the car that the new ones are (save the 9-2, only because its a Subaru) junk. The early 90's Saab's were the last of the good ones. Starting in 94 they went radically downhill thanks to GM. Keep your 900 or keep an eye out for a early 90's SPG.

    Currently I use an old '88 Buick Century Wagon. With the seats down I can throw 2-3 bikes laying down in the back all intact. Could add a roofrack and hitch in time if needed...
    Currently looking for a ride with a little more 'zing' in it.

    944 Turbo

    I have a '86 944 Turbo and if I take the wheels of the bikes I can fit two bikes in the rear hatch and get there very fast. My other hauler is a '91 Plymouth Voyager. Its great because I have taken out the seats and installed a rack and can hour four bikes with our having to remove or lower anything. No pic because its not photogenic.

    My goal is to get to 350K. I see no reason why it won't. It runs better than the day I got it with 75K on it. But I agree, things have gone downhill since GM got involved.

    I've been lusting after a 2002 9-5 Aero. Only because it's bigger, and will fit my family and I hear good things about that particular year and model.

    Later

    BTW, mine mechanically essentially is an SPG. I have a tweaked Red box and Intrax springs. I fell in love with the wheels from the 1993 Commemorative edition turbo, so I bought them. I think it goes great with the classic red color.

    Mine is a 94 dodge intrepid. 150k and still going strong. Decent gas millage and plenty of room inside the car. I keep thinking of getting something else but for versatility and room nothing comes close.
    The bikes go on the hitch rack and everything else goes in the trunk.

    This for a very short while....its getting broken up soon as the big ends are knackered, the rear arches are rusty and it is just getting stupid to run with fuel prices in the uk. Fuel is about the equivelent of $7.40 a US gallon. It cost me about £50 to fill it up...about $90 and that gets me 300 miles.... (

    Gonna get a diesel that does 50mpg....and focus on my riding instead )

    Thanks man. Reason= divorce, move, loss of good job, retraining, and I live in a place called Ohio that is basically flat land USA... Used to be out in the PNW where my beauty is at home. No need for the big Chev dog here, although I've been thinking about keeping it and paying it off so when I'm finished with schooling I can move back out west with my dog, my bike and my truck, what else could a guy want.

    I agree. My first hauler was a 1985 SAAB SPG, now i have a 1990 SPG, with unknown miles (odo broke).

    I drive an '85 Caprice Classic with 55,000 miles on the clock. The car is reliable, comfortable, and it has space to spare...I'd like something new (Mazda6 wagon), but I don't really see a point in that when this thing runs fine the way it is. I'm so in tune with everything the car does - it's like having a comfortable old fuzzy blanket.

    The outside is showing some rust and the trim's starting to peel away. I guess that happens after 20 years. The interior, however, is in nearly perfect shape, and I'm rockin' with my Panasonic CD/MP3 player and Polk/JBL speakers.

    I usually have an old Sears bumper rack on the back, but took it off for maximum mpg on a long trip i recently took. Bikes will fit in the trunk very easily, though.

    Here's the only picture I have on this computer of it, taken after a ride at Nebo Ridge in Columbus, Indiana. The wheel covers are normally chrome, not 'dirt.'

    GM acquired saab in 1990, therefore all cars from then on have had GM influence. also, saab was still an independent company when GM bought it and GM was an investor, cars were still made in sweden with saab parts. aside from the newest '03-'05 models, GM has had little to do with saab manufacturing except for taking in profit.

    hey there super mod--if you've been perusing my threads you know my wife put my Giant OCR through a super mangling at the Japanese restaurant in Pearl City while I was home on r and r this past summer. That was a thousand dollar accident.

    no the pic looks like this because I barely back the car outta the garage to put the bike atop so as to not block the "alley".

    And usually now--and esp if the SO is driving-- a chair goes out near the driveway entrance to remind-dirt nachines atop.

    nice method to get new bikes tho

    Well here's what my RIDE rides in when I feel the need to drive it to a ride - It's a 1988 Suzuki Fronte and best of all get's me some great milage. People are always amazed that I can actually fit my bike inside this car - I just remove the front wheel and it lies down w/ the back seats down.

    I had one of those as my first car. Crazy fun I can't remember how many burn outs and sideways slides I did pulling out of the parking lot back in highschool. All this lead to a cracked rear differential and I had to sell her

    1988 w/ only 150k on her. She'll see 300k since I'll be in grad school another 2.5 years or so and I'm pretty sure she's bulletproof.

    On the way to pick up friends to catch fresh tracks here. Gotta love 6am powder wake-up calls.

    My old "bike wagon"-- a 2001 Toyota Sienna. It held 2 bikes on the rack and 2 inside with the third row seats removed. The third row seats never saw the inside of the van the last year I owned it. I just traded it in on a new Ford Freestyle (which I already have a Thule roof rack installed) but I have no pics of that yet. So here's a pic of Old Faithful. I have a lot of good ride memories associated with that van.

    No pictures, but my ride's ride is a 1990 4 cylinder Ford Ranger with the paint falling off and 180,000 miles. No need for a bike rack or taking the front wheel off. Just toss my bike in the back. Also, it looks so bad that nobody even things about breaking in it at trail heads.

    89 740 turbo volvo wagon... paid $500 for it (including the rack) w/ 240k miles and a hole in the block... seems a rod didn't like the engine anymore... next week a 140k mile engine goes in (from my prvious 760 turbo wagon which has a crappy body and inteior but great engine)


    i acculy traded 2 of the load bars and wheel holders for a megasquirt (DIY engine managment system)... car also came w/ a nice large turbo in the rear of the car ready to install...

    anyway don't have a bike to attach to it YET... but should have a 29er on it next month or so...

    a beat up 1994 Mazda Protege. paint is scratched all over, but no actual body damage.
    149k miles on it, and still going strong. regular care makes a huuuuuge difference in car lifespan, i've found. i can fit 3-4 bikes on the roof easily, 5-6 if i take the time to make everything fit. great for two person road trips, or 3-4 if just driving to trails for a day trip.
    even has a tow hitch setup. gets me 28mpg as my low, when loaded down. 32+ if it's just me. it's long since paid off, and i'm driving it until it dies! cheap insurance, even full coverage, and i love not having a car payment.

    hmmm, it's replacement will likely be another mazda, maybe a 3 or 6 wagon.......

    Yeah, nice. I have driven for alot of people in chairs, and others who are authorized handicap parking, and nothing pisses me off more than finding a truck, or gajillion dollar SUV or sports car, parked in a handicapped space. Not only that, but you have the nerve to shoot a picture, and then the gall to post it on the net? I bet you are very proud of yourself...

    The Kona Stuff, Cannondale Hardtail, and Weyless SP all ride on top of the Integra with lots of suspension mods. It gets raced more than the bikes these days. I ride the bikes all the time just no racing any more.

    I park in that spot all the time. This is in front of my apartment and it's the only place I ever park in a handicap spot. Their are no Handicap people that live close to my apartment so this spot dosen't get used. Also their aren't many parking spots availible here.
    Like I said I park in this spot all the time and didn't think about it before I posted the pictures. Sorry if I offended anyone.

    Wow! That post was constructive. I'm guessing you know nothing about Autocross racing by your post. It's an organized event where you compete against other closely performing cars. One car runs at a time against the clock focusing on driver skill and handling not speed/power. It's can be very competitive and fun. I got up to about 65 on the straight on that 1min 8sec course. High speed is not the goal, learning how to drive a car to it's full potential is. Skill is the point.

    old but still good...

    Hi,
    Here my old 190D '88 Benz.
    Engine trouble free so far... :-)
    Very cheap to travel but not very fast either :-P
    Good for 3 bikes, 3 riders and one driver.. :-D
    :-)

    Happy riding.

    PS. Picture made after 700miles drive and 60miles ride on the highest road on Romania (at 6500+ ft) in one day (18 hours).

    I am very familiar with tipping cones in parking lots.

    While it's helpful for low speed car control skills it's a far cry from going door-to-door on a real track and the speeds are quite low, as noted in your post (65 mph, woohoo!).

    It's a whole lot of standing around for a little bit of seat time in a relatively slow, solo car environment.

    Just the facts.

    Just the facts.
    I like to only run with certain chapters that have less cars and less waiting. On that day I got 6 runs which is not bad. Some chapters are really bad with tons of wait time. I agree that those days are not worth it (had one recently and hated it). Track days get you the most seat time but they also cost about $200 per day plus buring through 1/4 a set of $400+ tires and brakes not to mention most car insurance companies don't cover damage at timed events. I'm hesitant to risk my daily driver wheel to wheel being uninsured with drivers of unknown experience. The cost and risks are much higher and it's still not racing. To get into a real racing series on a road track would require a dedicated car that was fully setup for it, tow vehicle, and lots of cash. Estimated costs are about $10,000 per year just to run in the Honda Challenge Series which is fairly grass roots. That's not worth it to me. I do plan on getting into some track days (HPDE) just for fun. That will be high speed but still not racing. Going on a week day is better where costs are about $110 at Buttonwillow. What car did you autocross in the past?

    sfr4dr,

    It look like you have a yakima rack on 4 door integra. I'm thinking about going yakima for my 4dr integra, but I heard that the clips mess up the frameless door seals. Have you had any problems? Any wind noise or water getting in? Do the clips go between the glass and the rubber seals?

    thanks

    My little disaster waiting to happen

    Renault Clio. From 1992.I should have got this one for free, but I didnt.I bought it third hand and I wont tell you how much I paid... Anything is too much.
    The odometer stoped near 225 thousand Km some time ago.It has some nice details though, like electric windows and map light, however air conditioning is not there...and summer is hot in Spain...really
    Bike stays comfortably at the rear whenever I drive to a trail. I have to remove the wheels though, which is a pain with the silly narrow arch of my Mars Cl fork.
    Who needs a SUV ? I do.

    87 subaru

    I recently purchased an 87 subaru GL 4WD wagon. I paid 650 for it put about 350 worth of thule rack on top then put my pride and joy worth around 2500 on top of that. I hope with this combination I can get anywhere I need to.

    Here's my 05 Scion tC. I fabricated the hitch and the rack from scrap as there isn't a receiver hitch yet available for my car yet. I figured I'd save a few bucks and make the rack as well.

    A maroon 97 F150 couldn't be further from exciting (especially in this town), but here it is in its most fabulous photo pose. Salida, CO on the Arkansas river.
    The rack is 1x2 square tubing and 1x1.5 angle.

    Switched to a pseudo pick up this summer ( Ford Sport Trac) and now miss my Focus more than ever. Even with the front wheel off I have to put down the tail gate. F*ckin bed is useless except to stand on in order to get the bikes on the roof rack that I had to put on!

    no the pic looks like this because I barely back the car outta the garage to put the bike atop so as to not block the "alley".



    nice method to get new bikes tho


    And this was a $2000.00 accident involving the minivan and the garage.




    I can also fit 5 bikes on the minivan, but I have no pictures of it.

    One thing I'd like to see improved is gas mileage, I get 22 average with 5 speed.

    It's a whole lot of standing around for a little bit of seat time in a relatively slow, solo car environment.

    Just the facts.

    '04 TSX, 5AT with Navigation.
    No pics of the Yakima trunk rack + bike on the car, because it pains me to look at.

    One of these days I'll get a hitch receiver for the boat (Hobie Cat) and a receiver rack.


    BTW, BeetRoot, I bought the TSX because I chickened out on an S2000 as an only car. After 45k miles in 2 years, I made the "right" decision, but I still hate myself for going practical

    S2k is definitely no good for hauling bikes, or anything else for that matter. Its a fun little car though.

    I'm a big fan of the TSX too, very nice choice. I had a CL- type S before the S2000 and loved it. Plus Acura service > Honda service by a mile. If you ever need anything, check out www.acurazine.com

    05 Kia (don't laugh!) Spectra 5.

    more HP, more mpg, and more room than my old 94 Mazda Protege. and way more features. it's faster, handles better, and drives much smoother. granted, it's also 11 years newer.

    OK a little ratty but still a D110... sweet! One day I hope to own one too!

    For now.. an 02 Tahoe will have to do...

    It's mostly stock with upgraded brakes and 20" wheels with Nitto Terra Grapplers. Usually Has a couple Steelheads on the Yakima rack with the basket and a Saris Cycle-On on the back to carry up to 6 bikes and people. It's been off-road all over the Sierras and Death Valley as well as numerous crouss country vacations. It seats up to 6 comfortably and tows the boat and utility trailer Yea the gas mileage is kind of bad at 17 mpg average... It's still the best I can find that does what I need. Oh well let the "you're an evil bastard" comments commence.

    Mine is SAAB 9-3, the last hatchback model.

    Sorry I don't have any pictures of my mtb on the rack yet. So I just have to post the pictures of my road bikes on it.

    Some sweet stuff posted here!

    I currently have a 1996 Ford Taurus in Eggplant Purple. No system to haul the bike(s) yet. I sometimes use my Wifes Windstar mini van, but she freaks if the bikes leave some mud etc....

    So most of the time I use the company work van, it is a 98 Ford Econoline. Not the most fuel efficient or eco friendly, but I have lot's of room to stand the bike up on it's wheels and have little concern about unattended bike racks when in a parking lot or overnight.....
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!

    Lol, I was going to post my husbands bike (dirty mind)....

    We have a Landcruiser 79 series Ute, recent acquisition & handy since we live on a rural property now...



    And also an 80 Series Toyota Landcruiser Wagon with a 6.5L Chev Diesel. Yes hubby is a Cruiser Man.


    My ride either goes in the back of the 80 with one or two wheels off, or straps to the 79 cross ways next to the spare wheel.

    I currently drive an 05 Tahoe, with a fork mount in back. I was the only cyclist in my family. Now my wife and kids are also into bikes so I am looking at either a new quad cab either colorado or silverado. I will then let me wive have the Tahoe

    I suppose that rolling around twisty, technical singletrack at slow speeds isn't racing either.

    That's simply a horrible analogy.

    Tipping cones at slow speeds in a parking lot, for 45 seconds to a minute at a time is vastly different than road racing.

    The stress on the vehicle and driver is much greater when you aren't out there tipping cones only for a short period of time. You are driving at much higher speeds and consequently braking from much higher speeds lap after lap after lap. The thermal loads on the tires and brakes are much higher. It requires much more skill to perform in that kind of environment.

    You're also driving on the course with other drivers, often door-to-door, passing through corners, dive bombing, trying to out-brake the other guy into corners, etc. There is nothing like that in AutoX.

    (extra bonus points for responding to an almost four year old post!)

    Both my rides.

    But the Civic wagon does the hauling, just flip the seats down and lay the bike down. Easily fits two bikes.
