    What Kind of Car Holds the Best System?

    I am in the process of buying a new car since repairs on my current one are going to be worth more than the car itself! I was thinking about getting an older model Chevy Monte Carlo, about a 95' or something close to that body style. The main thing here is that the car needs to hold a decent system (2 15" Tempest). I want a big trunk that can hold a decent size box and preferrably fold down seats. Let me know what you guys think? Another reason to get this car is gas mileage adn insurance costs....so keep that in mind also. Thanks!

    there arent many hatchbacks on autotrader, only 3! I know some people who own car lots and they go to auto sales quite often...I will get one at cost. Any other Models that hold nice systems?

    When I put the system in the hatchback, is it going to take up the entire back seat?

    Who cares.......the system comes first!

    Anyways, a CRX would work aswell (assuming you are looking for SPL).

    If you plan on putting a big *** system in a car, whats the point of back seats? Nobody is going to want to sit back there. If you get a Civic hatch, make sure you get the 5th generation body (92-95), they are the best

    Have you ever been in a Del Sol? Really hard to find room in one to fit a stereo of any size.
