For years I owned pick-up trucks or SUVs so I could move wood and projects around town with ease. But I never liked their poor gas mileage.
Oh who am I kidding; pickups don’t go fast enough for me, or have a decent sport suspension.
Now I drive a two-door Acura RSX (yes, it’s the type S) hatchback, and it is shocking what I can get into the thing. Last week I had to transport the entire set of stacking bookshelves for the June issue to my house for a photo shoot. Each of the seven units is 48″ long.
So I folded down the seats, and started stacking.
I also regularly travel to classes in this car, loaded with enough wood for 12 sawbenches and all the tools I need for the week.
And when I’m not spinning at 6,000 rpm, I do like the 31 mpg, too.
