    don't feel bad i have a 2 door saturn. i modified my green garden cart to have quick breakdown so after each trip i have to take 2 min taking it apart to get it into that small, 4 cyl, 2 door car. i have the cart tweaked enough to hold 9 rods, ice chest, drop net, 4 chairs, and tackle box, and food.

    The struggle is real! I gotta Honda Fit and trying to fit a full size cart, cooler, net, and 8 rods takes some work but I still have room when its all said and done. Honda nailed it when they said its deceptively large.

    Last summer, we transported all our gear in a VW Golf, same story, stuff, cram and make no rod tips are in the door jams! But good gas mileage on a 60 mile trip trumps all the room in the F150.

    Get yourself a good front wheel for your chariot---makes a world of difference. I got a pneumatic wheel from Harbor Freight and it made my cart roll a lot smoother and quieter. The way I attached it was a little ghetto, but that should make it fit right in on yours

    Next upgrade after the front wheel is the bait bucket holder. Then the weed eater motor, bicycle chain and sprockets.

    i didn't really think I would even like the wheel, but since there is a Haywire Engineered pneumatic wheel option I will probably go that route, thanks!

    That wheel is a tad big and makes the cart higher in the front---makes it look like a low rider that can get rubber in the first three gears. Trouble is, the engine is old and weak and hasn't had its oil changed in a long time.
