A Bike Friday in the Trunk of an Alfa Spider

Several months ago I responded to Bruce M's shot of a Moulton in his Spider's trunk with the promise I would post a picture of a Bike Friday in the same situation - I just happened to be 1,000 miles from my Alfa at that time.

Today we are folding up the Pocket 8's to cart them off to a ride (in our Yaris Liftback), so I took the opportunity to shoot my Large Frame Pocket 8 in the Alfa's trunk. It fits easily, but that top Lime Green BMX pedal would need to be removed to close the lid.

Yes, Bruce, there are no trunk mats at the moment...

Should I share a photo of a Bike Friday tandem (Tuesday) in the trunk of a Toyota Echo?

Would be interesting to see - a bit deeper trunk so it should fit pretty well.
