DG's Bike Fit Thread Kicked Up a Notch
Although I probably never will, I find myself thinking how best to set up a bike transport in the back seat area of our Grand Marquis ... minus the back seat. The only time me and the wife use the back seat area is when we take our 110 lb dog to the vet, and the dog would probably rather bop around the back seat area instead of barely being able to fit on the back bench-style seat of the sedan.
If Mercury ever made a Grand Marquis that only had the two front bucket seats, and an area behind the front seat for bulky items and big animals ... with strap hooks mounted on the floor ... I'd buy one. Has anybody seen a large sedan converted for transporting stuff, by removing the back seat from the sedan?
Any radical modifications like the one described above, done to a large family car or other vehicles, that the gang has seen for transporting bikes?
