It's a 1999 or Y2K-1, straight 6, 5 speed, no ac but it has the bracket for one, Forest Green Pearl coat, Full doors, tan top. It sits in the garage most of the time and has about 80,000 miles on it. I'm hoping to get out more this Fall and Winter. I had a MSD ignition system but the unit went out so I'm back to the factory model, I do have an aftermarket air flow system K&N. I put a new exhaust system on, the Banks catback and I have the exhaust header but haven't got it on yet. I do need new tires soon.

    It's best when the back seat is taken out so there is more room, I need to get a box bolted down so there is at least some security. I put a security system in and it has electric widows which it didn't come with though.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    My 12x20 Lotus goes in this Samsonite that I put an axle on and wheels from Harbor Freight. The tires hold 40 lbs. of air and this thing is a breeze to pull anywhere....and 4 holders will go in the front zippered area......TW

    The thing that carries the thing I carry my camera gear in is a 2002 EuroVan Weekender (pop-top with an upper bed, but no built-ins other than a table). Photo-camping made easy!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Yea that's what I need Vaughn, a EuroVan, what kind of mpg do they generally get? I rented a Nissan Altima and it got 30+ mpg but sleeping in the back seat sucked big time. I just couldn't straighten my legs out. I had back seat backs that folded down but left a hump so using the trunk for stretching legs into was out. Looks like I'm going to have my Dodge Ram gone over. I got stuck in Crescent City a couple of years ago and now that transmission is slipping again. The engine needs some work to improve the mpg, then I can pull the light weight camper trailer I have just paid off.

    With that combination I can store my camera gear easily and do some sit down work. The EuroVan would be excellent though.

    Curt...I had a VW Eurovan Camper in 2000. Wished I still had it. It went to Big Bend several times and I got 20 mpg doing 60-65 mph. The pop up top with the bed was good for me but really cramped for 2 but the storage in the back was great and overall it was a great photo rig with a large camera and all the gear. Check the prices for one now on Ebay and get sick to your stomach. They are out of sight..................TW

    I just did an hour ago and wow, so many people what one these days, the car companies should make a newer model that gets 30 or 40 and is self contained like the EuroVan. An undated model and not a full blown RV. There are places that it can go that a tractor trailer can't.
