I could easy fit this load in my 69 VW bug.
I used to go by the local goverment auctions using this car and
would come home with the backseat completely full, to the roof sometimes,
and often the front seat as well with sun gear.
Good thing it was down hill to home, it wouldn't make much more then
55mph loaded on level ground if I was lucky.
