    Got a C&V car to haul their C&V bikes?

    Does anybody also drive a C&V car to haul their C&V bikes? Its my guess that folks that ride C&V bikes are likely also driving C&V cars. If so lets see it!! I drive a 1982 VW Quantum, gets over 30mpg on the highway, has plenty of cargo space, and a long roofline for many rack options. This is a picture from last weekend when I did some riding in central Oregon. My bike is the closest, a 1988 Stumpjumper. (the other 2 bikes unfortunatley arent classic or vintage in any way)

    My only old car couldn't fit a bike. Well, maybe if I took both wheels off.

    Bright orange 1973 Datsun 240z. No room for a rear rack, or a roof rack. Besides, I had a truck at the same time... much easier

    Sold it though It was beginning to need love that I couldn't afford to give it.

    I replaced my C&V-car with my C&V-bikes... cheaper to maintain, and more units per garage.

    i got a picture i took at the lago di garda. I was there cycling...

    No pics, but before I renounced internal combustion, I used to transport my Peugeot (bike) on the back of my MGB/GT.

    My dad had a 78 LTD. That thing was more of a boat than my first car - an 85 Caprice Classic. I've longed for a 67 Chevelle, but for the cost of one of those in rough condition, I could own a half dozen pristine high end C&V bikes.

    mine: a 1968 BMW 1600TI Granada red with a white LaPrealpina rack...how C&V is THAT? No good pictures of it, and with gas pushing the $5/gallon point I keep it mostly off the street: surprising how much gas a little 1.6 liter with massive carburettors will drink!

    That would be my old 1981 Mercedes 300SD Turbodiesel. I only had to remove the front wheel to fit any of my bikes in its trunk. In 2003 I sold her to a co-worker who wanted a safe first car for his teenaged son. A year later, the kid fell asleep at the wheel, went offroad at speed & took out a utility pole. My faithful old sedan was totaled but the kid survived unscathed! I searched, but was unable to turn up any pics.

    I never had any problems with the electrics, despite the reputation. The guy I sold it to promptly replaced the alternator with a GM one, though, which of course is sacrilege. My B/GT was also a '73 but was blue. I still have a set of SU carbs kicking around my shop.

    I often use the car behind this bike for hauling bikes around, just take off the wheels and throw em in! 1964 Volvo 122s Wagon, picked it up with my dad at the factory in Goteborg, June 1964.

    Is yours more like this one?

    Contrary to what most people think, stuff in Oregon doesn't rust. It's not as rust-free as Arizona, but more than just about 46 other states.

    I have a 1978 Volvo 244 to haul my bikes. I even took it to the L'Eroica last year. Here is a pic.

    The local bike hauler:



    Fits all four mountain bikes and all four of us inside. It's not usually this low--here's the cargo that day:



    About a yard of drain rock and my unloader.

    Nope. Just a car fan.

    classic, but young enough to be allowed to go into the innercity of Amsterdam



    Bike swallowing capicities:
    - 2 bikes with wheels removed (in boot, while with bench up)
    - 4 full bikes when bench flat (of course much padding between them)
    - 10 bikes in pieces?

    This was my bike hauler until my son stole it ...



    Now I drive a '91 Suburban (only because it was free). This is what I want to be my bike hauler, but it will have to wait until all the kids are out of college before I can restore it:

    I wouldn't even trade it for bigbossman's Porsche.
