This just in from my friend Peter Kohlsaat, fisherman, diver, cyclist and fellow Baja adventurer, now living on the shores of Lake Superior:
We got a Fit, 2008. Only new car I’ve ever bought.(Couldn’t find any decent used Toyota Corolla wagons.)
In the advertiser brochure, they picture the Fit with an alpaca in it, and if I had one, I’m certain that I could put one in it. It is an amazing car. We took it on a two-week RoadTrip! from Minneapolis out and around Utah/Colordo/mts. Camping. All that camping crap (and we don’t travel light), everything fit. It holds more than our Subaru Forester. And we drove it where it definitely shouldn’t be driven. But it went. And it drives like a little Go Kart. Put a roof rack on it, and drive it back to Baja. I’m sure you could figure out a way to live in it.
