so, now that im 16 im finally looking into actually getting something more mobile than a bike


i need to have a good amout of room, for guitars/amp/PA.

preferably but not needed 4WD

and definitely 4 door.

used obviously.

probably a price range of about 1k-2k USD (im in the philadelphia area)
i know thats not much but im not looking for brand new quality either.


tl;dr
need dependable cheap first car capable of carrying band gear

so, suggestions?

thanks

Volvo something or other from the mid to late 90s would be perfect. The station wagons would obviously have more room, but right now my sedan has most of a full band's equipment in it, as well as all of my clothes/other living essentials (I'm sleeping on couches this week...). I got my 1990 240DL sedan for $1000 straight, so I'm sure you could too.

You don't need a 4x4, seriously.
Just get a small 4 door hatchback.

Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

2000-2003 Chevy Blazer
1995-2003 GMC Jimmy
2003-2004 Saturn Vue (not 4x4 tho)

and btw TS, if your hearts set for a 4x4 vehicular device, think about dishing out more money

But seriously, get something that Jack Black had in School of Rock; a cool, disgustingly brown van, WITH A REAPER ON THE SIDE. Not sure what make / model it was.

i definitely want a 4 door though.

haste the day: thanks for that, not sure if the pa would fit next to the amp though... XD

Get a big chevy truck, pig on gas but with the box you could fit everything in there, just put a tunnel cover over the box so people don't see your gear when you are moving it.

Get a Pontiac Grand Am. '99 or over only though, the older ones are a totally different car and they suck.
Try as close to this as possible. GT's are the best. SE's are alright, but don't get the 4 cylinder its underpowered.

i can honestly say that ford explorers (at least my moms, which is like an 05 or something and a special edition) are nice cars with a lot of room, and 4 wheel drive. I drove one for a full year with my permit, and and a few weeks with my license. You do have to be careful because they are tippy, but they have loads of room, you could fit a few guitars, an amp, and a PA (depending on the size of the amp and PA). They however, are real gashogs.

I've got an 02 grand am and i can fit a guitar, a 1x12 combo amp, a backpack with pedals, and a golf bag in the trunk. All in all a nice car with pretty good mpg's.

I would look into ex-police vehicles...They generally go for less than 5k and it's not hard to find a used Crown Vic or the like for around 1k-2k. They also tend to be very reliable cars...

Maybe something like:
This
This
or This

Look at some police impound vehicles too...You can usually find some decent cars for dirt cheap.

Bad idea, there's a reason they go so cheap
Plus, who the hell would want a crown vic!?

don't forget why they are cheap, because they were bag driven.

Buick Roadmaster, man. Awesome band-mobile there, especially if you need to haul a PA along with other stuff.

Nope, no sig here.

^ Seriously? He Has to haul his gear and a PA system. A CRX is not going to fit that. Plus, that's pretty much the opposite of what he described in the OP.
