I am actually getting pretty good at fixing these overly complicated cars! I am a carpenter and just about everyone I work with uses a pickup truck that really won't haul much in the way of tools securely while I can haul a ton of tools absolutely securely while listening to the Bose.



Not mine but similar.

I always loved the way these looked...

I own a couple properties and have the pleasure of visting them as HVAC repair man from time to time (don't queue the porn sound track.. it never happens )... I drive a sedan and also keep a bunch of tools and misc repair materials in my trunk... I tell yah its the way to go... I feel much more secure having those tools in the trunk than I ever did with them in a saddle box in my old truck...

And with the front passenger and rear seats folded down I can fit a 10' lenght of pipe in the car and close the trunk!
