Default Photomobile!

Well, since our BMW was broke, we finally found a big car were the whole family can ride. And my wife and I can take photo trips and camp in the car.

Nothing like a van is there ? That Toyota looks very useful and practical.

I still miss our 97 Chevy Astro van. We ordered it with heavy duty suspension, over size tires, upgraded seating and towing axle ratio. Eventually we put on Michelin LT (light truck) M/S Michelin tires. Also the Eaton G-80 Locking Axle for traction. Good ground clearance, lot's of traction...it could certainly get out of some traction limited spots.

Rated cargo capacity was 1800 lbs or so and it had the GM 4300cc Vortec truck engine and was rear wheel drive, with leaf spring rear suspension.

Had it for 10 years, towed all over western Canada and the USA...might of been the best vehicle I've ever had.

Not a sports car, but a truck.

Looks like you could take a studio along if need be.

Thats true
Itīs great to have the space. And my wife and I can take photo tours and camp in the car.
We had a Chrysler Voyager before and that was a really nice car too.

My photomobile...great for long distance driving, hauling just about anything including lots of photo-gear, and hanging out in and around airports. Not much use for picking up chicks....unless your trying to impress soccer mom's

D300s + Tamron 18-275 VC
