Two fifty pound bags of cracked corn for my chickens and peacocks fit fine.

When friends question the size of the trunk, I tell them I've had a complete toilet in there. Good luck doing that with your Accord.

Mine is my DD and goes just about everywhere... even in the rain.

I hauled 4 bags of mulch home from Lowe's yesterday. The trunk size still impresses me.

This is so silly! I would never do that to a corvette, sometimes I will put a few things in my car, I am very picky and particular, I have rules in my car

Yes I have it is all about where you park not what you put in the trunk as long as you can shut it!

Now that's what I call a performance crossover. Where's the C7 el camino version?

It's my DD and gets much better gas mileage than my Prostreet Rod, nothing else to use unless I borrow the wife's SUV!
I use this fold-flat heavy cloth carrier that I made a wood participation that also folds flat when not in use. Avoids spilled milk!

Funny thing is, when we take the SUV for groceries it's an 8 mile drive--when we take the Vette it's about 20 miles. Go figure.

Yep, groceries, trips to Home Depot, whatever. If it fits safely and doesn't damage the car it's alright. And yes, I drive it in the rain, in fact there was light show on the roads the day I brought it home in January, that was not fun with Sumner tires. Happily both car and driver for home safe.

Just drove my Z06 to Walmart to pick up some pool chemicals. When I pulled into the parking lot one of the cart attendants waved me over and pointed out to a just open end spot under a shade tree. Very nice of him and about as close as you come to valet parking at Walmart

I always take the C4 shopping. Wife has a 300C, but 99% of the time we can fit all we need in the C4

Oh and one other use for the C4 has been to respond when my fire department gets a call and the C4 is already out. I have dash warning lights so the looks I get when I arrive and start putting on my gear are priceless.
