    You can rent a small box truck for $30/day plus mileage for the few times you are moving a pin.

    Then drive a mini-cooper, one of the most fun cars ever!

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I was thinking more of the Cayenne, is that big enough?

    No, I looked at one, the opening isn’t high enough.

    Well just saved 60k I would never have
    Thanks

    The Mazda CX-5 is a smaller SUV that fits a pinball machine nicely and still works well as a daily driver. I got one awhile back and have been very happy with it. Moved a couple pins in it without issue. Highly recommended.

    What years with the Honda Fit will fit games/pinballs etc?

    They are making decent looking cars these days.

    I have not tried in my 2014 audi sq5 but I think it would fit a game. and its super fun to drive!

    Agree! But as a car enthusiast, it feel gross to say haha.

    Love my Ford Escape Titanium. Fit a pin EASILY. Perfect rear entry height too.

    #61 2 years ago

    i'm waiting to pull the trigger on a volkswagon atlas, really nice SUV, very big inside.

    I looked at those and thought the hatch opening was too short to haul one, I didn't measure it though.

    I will have to pull out the old tape measure. I have a truck with a lift gate so I have not had to try yet.

    I have a Mazda CX-9 GT and I like it better than the CX-5, so not looking to go there. And no offense to the CX-5...it is a nice ride. It just that the CX-9 feels like the best Mazda has. No surprise I guess given a $40K+ car vs $25K or so.

    I was wondering about things like a Macan Turbo, Tesla Model S, or Mercedes GLA 45 AMG...but not sure if a pin will fit in those.

    Quoted from bobukcat:

    I guess "fun to drive" means different things to different people. Anything over about 5.2 seconds 0-60 mph does not meet that qualification for me unless it's a classic or super toss-able.

    Yes I see that...lots of cars mentioned are much less fun than my current car is to drive (2015 Mazda CX-9 GT). But my fault...I should have been more specific.

    Quoted from Lermods:

    Looks nice, but slow.

    A TDI wagon would be more inline with what I am thinking. I enjoyed that back when I had one. Although the whole debacle about faking on the "clean diesel" stuff makes me want to never buy a VW again. That was some dirty business...

    #67 2 years ago

    Looks super cool...I doubt it is fun on curves or hilly roads.

    #68 2 years ago
    Quoted from freakandgeek:

    .I doubt it is fun on curves or hilly roads.

    Probably not. But who really wants to go around curves fast with a pinball machine loaded up in the back?

    Fun to drive can mean several things including being the center of attention and king of the road wherever you go. Something you won't get with a typical Mazda.

    A Nissan Cube might be fun to drive, but who really wants to be seen in one?

    I can think of a million other reasons to never want a VW again. I did like my TDIs though.

    Why is the front legroom in the Honda Fit so awful? I was looking at compact cars and really wanted to like the Fit (partially for the pin hauling ability), but couldn't buy one because I was eating my knees. I am tall, but I'm comfortable in many compacts. My favorite is the Toyota Yaris IA, which is basically the new model Mazda2.

    I mean, I'm not going to go out and buy one...

    Quoted from o-din:

    When I start to get discouraged about different choices I've made over the years, I think "You know what? Someone designed the Nissan Cube...my life isn't so bad."

    #73 2 years ago

    Yeah, but with a white Nissan cube, you can put on nerdy science license plates, and have some really obscure humor.
