2011 Infiniti M56: Be Careful What You Wish For

February 10, 2011

"Scott, we've got an assignment for you down in Orange County. Can you drive the M56?"

Being that I've never driven our M56, or any M56 for that matter, I enthusiastically said yes. Then it struck me: I'm setting up lights for this shoot. How am I supposed to fit all my gear, especially the c-stands into this thing?

Well, it doesn't have fold down rear seats which really is a bummer for my mass of gear. I'm a little fearful to place my stuff on the rear seats. I don't want any damage done to the leather seats or door trim from hard case corners and metal components shifting around as I drive down to the OC.

Thankfully our M56 does have a pass through so I was able to fit my c-stands in the trunk. The rest of the trunk, while fairly large, does have some pretty good intrusions from the rear wheels; something you'd naturally expect for sure, but with my inflexible large gear bags it was a little tricky. With a little wiggling and a couple of tries I was able to get all of it in.

I was pretty surprised but very happy. I was able to fit all my junk inside that trunk.
