The full size trucks & SUVs are just too big for our skinny driveway & narrow streets & are way too tall for us to comfortably use - plus my wife will NOT drive them bare - let alone hitched, so the Pathfinder's mid-size SUV type is a better fit for our needs.

So we're currently looking for a low mile, lightly used & well maintained 2006-10 Porsche Cayenne S (normally aspirated V8 power) as an "extra car" & TV for both the T20, & for rented car haulers for my `73 914-2.0 during resto & after to car events.

More pix to follow later of the rear cargo rack mods to carry our bikes, trailer spare tire & rolling grey water tank (empty - when needed) - after I finish the mods. to it & wire up some lighting on it.
Did some Admin remove the pix I had here of the big ole F250 truck from the front in my driveway?

If so, why!?

Re-adding the pix of the F250 in our tight driveway, for why a full size truck/SUV won't work for us.

Looks similar to my useless RV parking slot, except my house eaves are neatly positioned to tear aluminum if I even thought of backing the AS in there. The 2012 Tacoma fits every bit as tight as your truck. Thank god for s nice neighbor that has wider space for the AS, and absolutely refuses any payment. Truly great folks.

Re-adding pix .....

Pix of the types of TVs which we've rented since getting our Avion T20 in July 2012:

1.) 2012 Ford F150 4x4 with V6 3.6L (?) Ecoboost & Tow Option - July 2012

2.) 2013 Nissan Pathfinder 4x4/2x4 V6 4.0L - 3x during 2013

3.) 2014 Dodge RAM 2500 V8 (2x in 2014) *

4.) 2014-15-16 Ford F250 V8 Gas & Diesel (2x D & rest gas) - during 2014-16 *

* Full Crew Cab or Extended Cab (all 4-doors), 6'/6.5' or 8' beds, engine types, trim levels, & colors varied with each rental.

Cheers!
Tom

Well not "MY" truck, but one of the many rentals.

The rented Pathfinders & the prospective Cayenne or maybe Lexus GX470/460 which we're looking to buy now will at least give us a shorter total rig length for better maneuvering it in, as well as actually being able to open the door a bit more in the driveway.

Your being in Corona, you probably know what the narrow streets are like here in/next to Old Towne Orange, since Corona likewise has some old town neighborhoods with similar constraints.

Glad you have a good neighbor!

I'm also working on a parking space for the Avion in our backyard area, where I'll use my Power Mover electric dolly to push/pull it back there & out again for hitching, to/from the driveway between the back of our house & the detached garage beyond it.

PS - You're welcome to bring the family/self down to the vintage trailer/RV rally at Newport Dunes for the 10-3 public open house on Sat. Oct. 1 - I have on good authority that there will be free hot dogs for all comers at our buddy's campsite. Come say Howdy if you make it!

Cheers!
Tom

AS is actually parked up in Victorville. We have a small 'getaway house' up there. The AS is being worked on to put in some upgrades.

The neighbor up there is a retired British Merchant Marine sailor. He has some great stories, and is super polite and ineffably 'British'.

Thanks for the invite.

In my 26 years of playing Rugby (College, Club & Old Boyz), & 6 playing Soccer (HS & College/Semi-Pro), I knew a lot of Brits & others from UK & Canada, NZ, OZ & SAfrica - most of whom were very affable & polite to a tee! Although I'm a "Yank" - that time produced my "Cheers" sign-off.

I think excessive politeness must be a requirement for citizenship in the UK & Commonwealth countries!

You don't need your AS for the rally, & it's free except for your gas & time. Although I'd probably pick your AS out from a crowd right away, due to the multiple antennae!

One of my San Diego buddies from HS days was the SD Sherriff Deputy LT. in charge of the Comm & SWAT-Comm Buses, so his Honda Accord looked like a Porcupine!

Cheers!
Tom

Agreed on the politeness. My wife is a Brit from Hong Kong. Manners are very important to her! (Ask our kids...&#128512
