    I know it's at least 8 - but I suspect that someone has probably "sardined" more into the cabin.




    Jack: you have always struck me as a man that doesn't discriminate - which is a very good thing! All the best and thanks for sharing your expertise with us (well.....me really)

    I once fit two adults, two black labs and a 350cc Street (Yamaha R5C) bike into my '69 bug. It was tight, at least according to everyone who wasnt driving

    We had 6 last weekend, coming back from the neighbours... We had the "nationals" locally once, and I seem to recall getting 23??? We may have allowed people on the running boards and bumpers though We once drove my sisters mini (also a 72!) into town with 9 of us in it. I also had 14, in my old Transporter (T3) Vanagon - they was quite comfy though - 10 had seats! Luckily it had 165 Subaru flavoured horses, so it moved both UP and down the massive hill I was transporting people on.

    BTW...

    Sorry to hear about your stomach "issues", Uwe. Strangely, we've traditionally had similar foods for Christmas down here... even though it's stinking hot, humid and sunny. I'm loath to mention it... again... but the real difference is you guys sitting around in heated houses with sensible clothes on, possibly looking at snow, decorative sleighs etc...

    ... while we sit around, wherever is breezy, drinking beer (actually plum cider today), looking at fake snow painted windows, icy looking lights, making things look wintery, around the pool... in our undies

    We're just about to head off to my Sisters house - she has a pool, in case that helps with mental images

    Allan.

    Funny, I have never seen a sleigh on anyone's lawn. Snowmobiles parked on the roof, however, are a different story.

    Just when I *finally* got last week's image out of my mind.....

    I'm back home in St. Louis visiting family for the holidays. I'm surrounded by people wearing "Make America Great Again" hats in a serious, non-ironic manner. Please send help.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Wearing hats are far more peaceful than this alternative.
