2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Practical Hauler?
August 16, 2010
This weekend was not one for freewheelin' fun with our 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Nope, since I'm moving next week I had to do boring stuff like use it to fetch cardboard boxes. Why didn't I just take a more suitable long-term car, you ask? The Camaro and the Miata were my only choices as a car to take this weekend.
At first I was skeptical our two-door sports car could handle such a job. I even told the guy who was giving me his cardboard boxes that I probably wouldn't be able to take his whole stack. But then I remembered that the rear seats can fold down so I shoved about 40 broken-down cardboard boxes back there. Sweet! Below is a picture of all the boxes out of the car so you can get an idea of how much the Camaro held.
This weekend, I also had to pick up a dog I'm fostering for the week. I didn't know how I'd be able to fit the dog and her crate in the Camaro but then managed to just stick the crate in the front passenger seat and the dog in the back. After these chores were done, I took the car for a nice drive. It's great to be able to have my cake and eat it, too, for a change.
