After years of bugging my brother to use his truck, or my buddies to use one of their SUVs, I'll finally be getting my very own vehicle to transport pins. It's a 1995 Suzuki Sidekick, that's definitely seen better days, but runs like a champ on a rebuilt engine with low mileage. My dad bought it in 1997, and hasn't really driven it in about 2 years as he is 96 year old.
Word got around to me that he was thinking of selling his car since he doesn't drive anymore, and I told him and my mom that I'd be interested in buying it if it could fit a pin. Dad told me if I wanted it, it was mine, just have to pay whatever the title transfer was. If it was going to me, I could have it for free. So, last week I went and took some measurements, and with the back seats out, it's fit 53" in length, 34" in height and 35" in width, which pretty much covers any pin with the head down, and being an SUV crossover, it's covered too (my brother's truck is out when it rains). Not to mention it's a 4x4 and has a trailer hitch as well.
So, needless to say, I'm pretty stoked about transferring it over at the end of the week. Will be a great feeling to know that whenever there's a deal on the horizon, I can go pick up ASAP without having to arrange transport!
