It was my prized possession when I was 12, a brand-new 20-inch 1982 Redline Proline. It was chrome just like Stu Thomsen's and I special-ordered black Tuff Wheels, just like the ones R.L. Osborne used.
Then, in 1995, in one of my more foolish moments, I tossed its rusty remains in a dumpster. I still can't believe I was that stupid. Regret doesn't begin to cover it.

Over the weekend I was able to take our long-term 2014 Acura MDX on a road trip to visit friends in Northwestern Nevada, with stops along CA HWY 395 at Mono Lake and June Lake.
Most of the time we had two adults, a 60-pound dog, a cooler, and luggage. On the long stretches we had both the second and third rows folded down, which gave us more cargo room than we needed. I'm proud of my travel gear Tetris skills, but when every square inch is crammed, visibility suffers. This was not the case. I could see out the back and things were easy to access.

The deep storage well found in most minivans can't be topped for securing loose items. But our 2014 Acura MDX's shallower storage area behind the third-row seats is still sizable enough to hold about four reusable grocery bags.

My brother-in-law helped me retile my downstairs bathroom last year. And now it's payback time. He wanted to borrow my ladder this weekend and demanded delivery since there was no way it would fit in his BMW 5 Series.

This is about as much cargo as you can stuff into the 2014 Acura MDX when you still need the third row in place. Luckily for me, it's still quite a bit of stuff.

I like the inside of our 2014 Acura MDX a lot. These hard plastic cargo compartments are ideal for my weekly hikes. They allow for mess-free storage of my shoes, shirt and water bottle without getting dust and mud all over the carpeted surfaces. And when you move forward in the cabin, the MDX continues to impress.
