I just sold my car and am looking for a new one. I had a Mazda 3 and my 8 foot minimal barely squeezed into the cab with the seats down. I tried strapping it down but had noise issues + nearly lost the board once. I live in Melbourne and head to the surf coast at least once a week. 110km/h for an hour drive doesn't do my straps any good, plus they are so noisy its a joke. Anyway thats gone and i'm looking for a new car. I want something around the $8k or $9k mark.
So what do you guys drive? Should I go for a station wagon? I was looking at a BA Falcon Wagon. Does anyone have one? Any other ideas for a car which would suit a city-surfer i.e. someone who has to drive to the beach often? Or do any of you guys have sedans? Whats a good surfy car which isnt too expensive?
