    2002 Mercury Sable Wagon. When I set out to replace my ratty commuter (Escort wagon), I wanted something that wouldn't swill gas, but that I could fit the bike in the back without taking the wheels off. The Sable does 26-27mpg on the road, I can live with that. And easy in/out with the bike.

    My weekend hotrod is a 1990 Lotus Esprit. It is impossible to fit a bike (worth riding, anyway) into that car, no matter how much you disassemble it.

    I drive a 2000 Peugeot 306 GTi6, a nice mid-size two door hatchback with a powerful (for a French car) engine in it. HUGE fun to drive, it's so nimble and zippy around town. When the rear seats are folded back you can fit 2 bikes in it.

    I haven't owned a car for some time now,petrol/gas is generally around 94-98 pence a litre and as much as £1.00 here,the equivalent of 1.84 USD or 2.4 AUD.I seriously object to paying that for fuel and for the ludicrously high car insurance and tax prices we have in this country.
    The only way I get about now is by bike and train,this keeps me fit and I feel like I'm doing my bit for the environment at the same time.I really hate buses with a passion though and avoid using them at all cost!

    2001 Audi S4

    My bike JUST fits into the back with the seats folded down. This was a requirement for me. The dealer was none to happy about me squeezing in my bike into their car but it was a deal breaker for me and I insisted.

    Looking for something in a sports car next and not sure how I will fit my bike into it. I did see a Corvette at a century ride that had a trailer hitch and bike rack hanging off the back....VERY cool idea.

    I don't have a car yet, because I'm still studying, but if/when I do buy one, an old Volvo station wagon would be perfect! :D

    Buy an '06 NOW, and save lots of $$$. They arent changing anything for '07, and I know someone who just got a wagon for what most would consider a crime;)

    Hang on to that one, it will be worth massive $$$ one day.

    I drive a 1976 MB 300D running on B99 and a 1972 BMW 2002, which will run on ethanol after I restore it.

    '97 Porsche 911, black, tan interior. Other cars are '97 Miata and 2002 PT Cruiser. Without doing it intentionally, I seem to have owned a series of classics through the years: '64 fastback Mustang (first model year), '68 Chevelle 396 Supersport, '82 Mazda Rx-7. Of course, I wish I still had them. And all my comic books from when I was a kid.

    2001 Audi TT Roadster with the baseball glove interior for gas mileage. Hard to believe anything that will run 160 gets over 30 on the highway, although that only works when I use the cruise instead of my foot. You'd think pedaling with my right foot would make me faster but it doesn't.

    1990 Jeep Comanche, 4.0, LB to haul the bikes. Original everything. Hauls any of my fleet too, although the J/22 causes so much wind drag the mileage drops to about 11 mpg. Fortunately, I have not been bitten by the circuit bug - the Biking Bug bit first!
