    Another new bike rack.

    Another new trunk under which to mount my hitch rack. A 2009 Nissan Cube. One review I read tried to describe it as "ugly chasing cute". It may turn out to be the ultimate small bike carrying econobox.....I've discovered that 4 bolts will remove the entire rear seat assembly.........leaving only the front seats and a cavern. Hmmmm, I wonder if the wife (it's really her new car) would be open to that idea.

    I would post pics, but there are better already available everywhere on the web.

    There are occasions when it is better NOT to post pics of your latest aquisition.

    Cool. I have been struggling with the wisdom of a new car purchase too. With all the deals it is just hard to turn it down - problem is I know exactly what I want but it's not here yet. Subaru put out a Diesel Forester in Europe 2 yrs ago and I am hoping it will be here later this year. My wife has a 2002 Forester with 105K on it and my 1997 Exploder has 120K. We love the Forester, I would rather take it in a major snow storm over the Exploder any day. Up here in Upstate NY you have to worry about that stuff. If it doesn't come soon I'll just spring for a gas version and wait for next time. I'll probably take advantage of the Clunker rebate against the Exploder but I hate to send it to the crusher - what a friggin waist.

    I've seen a couple of those Cubes. I liked their design & overall usefulness.

    I think I'm about to pick up a Toyota RAV4 w/4 cyl. Mostly to be used by my wife. Also looking at it as a nice bike carrier.
