How many folders can you fit in your trunk?

I got two in my Versa's.

Here's a link to the pic: http://m.flickr.com/photo.gne?id=7240854130&

Any guesses on what bikes these are?

I had four in my Ford Focus a few months ago: two in the trunk and two in the back seat.

Depends on the bike, I can put 4 Bromptons in my Honda Accord trunk as long as I start with an empty trunk. I can get two Dahon Classics, or one Raleigh Twenty in there. I also own a full sized pickup with an 8 foot bed...I can't afford enough folders to fill that one up!

That may be a higher math variation of the N+1 formula, as many as you can fit in the rear.

2 would fit into the trunk of my Chrysler SX2 (Neon) and 2 on the back seat.

Nowhere, I didn't even have a passenger. I was meeting up with folks and I had all of the bikes.
