    Melinda, some of us sometimes have to transport more human beings than we care to admit... ;)
    This is why I needed two back rows of seats - plus trunk space - on this trans-US trip (already in our sixth state in 7 days... :)

    Bonus was the HUD, of course... :D

    that's really taking the whole fitting in with the locals a little far, isn't it?

    I think Elon has five kids. That's why he made rear facing kids seats in S. I think he cares about that. :)

    Mine is for moving 2 little humans around ;)

    Not groceries though. Not ever! Those bags get wet from the cold/frozen items and you won't want that on the seat.

    If I didn't have the kids, that back seat would just be an empty space always.

    Aaaah, mea culpa, I forgot you may not be steeped in the lore of the Wild West. You have reserved the "Coachman" model according to the brochure. I was wondering if you be driving a team of 4 horses (4 in hand) now affectionately called a 4 banger by ICE standards
    [​IMG]
    Or will you be driving an 8 horse team (8 in hand) which is a modified V8

    Might as well select the V8 in one orgasmic climax in the celebration of the death of the oil industry. I betcha that thing gets 5 mpg!

    We'll see what awaits us...! Since we're likely to drive 5k miles in total, I'd rather try to get 10 mpg!!! I'm on a budget with this party of 6!! :eek:
