Small boot space :(

Just finished doing the boot space in my Viento. Looks nice but the space is somewhat limited. I reckon I could squeeze in a small tent and a very thin sleeping bag. Or maybe 24 cans of beer. Not both however. Completely all you need of course.

Does anyone have more space than this in a Sevenish car? Any novel solutions out there?

Some people use a duffel bag type thing strapped down on the top of the rear end. I think there was a guy on here selling something that hung behind the seats as well.

Yep i had loads of space in my striker when i went to the ring. 5 days of clothes, tools, spares and stuff.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Please read my ring story:

So, you've never seen Clive's (Snuggs) Viento arriving or leaving a show then.

here we go I thought I had one


What he manages to get IN and ON his boot is amazing.





Beware of the Goldfish in the tulip mines. The ONLY defence against them is smoking peanut butter sandwiches.

A friend put a universal roof-rack across the roll bar back braces and perched a (cut down) mesh box on that. Holds heaps
