The size isn't the problem (16x20x32), it weighs 90 lb dry so that plus
liquid you would have to lift over the rear of the car. Hoisting that
weight to chest height at arms length to get it out of the cargo area
would take a bit of doing. I think one of those little electric scooters
would be a more likely prospect.
==========The link the OP gave just did not work for me....so I really do not
know what he was specifically asking about...
BUT I do carry a 3 wheeled Pride Sundancer Mobility Scooter in the
back of my 64 Convertible WITH THE TOP DOWN... when I go to Carlisle
etc... Have to break it down and have to put it back together when I
get wheer I am going...BUT that honestly is a 4-5 minute job ...
Been doing this at Carlisle for 4-5 years ever since Claudication in
my legs limited my walking ability and I could no longer walk all 82
acres at Carlisle...
There is plenty of room in the back of Mid Year Vettes to haul "your
64 72 & 98 Ragtops
76 & 79 Coupes
I once fit a 42" plasma TV into the back of a C4. Found a deal on it,
bought it, then remembered I was driving the Corvette that day. It
fit snugly at all four sides.
In hindsight, it looked kind of cool. Run it off an an inverter and
it would look like something from the Pimp My Ride TV show.
Not quite a correct statement, it will handle one bag of golf clubs,
not always 2. There is plenty of room left for the passengers seat to
pack more clothes for a weekend stay than it takes to outfit a small
I personally have no need for gasoline in a vented fuel system in the
cabin of a C6 , let alone the probable fuel, rubber, and oil smell.
The size will interfere with the back glass sitting length ways on the
back axle against the back of the ridge by the front seats and will
only fit laying on it's side. If you're strong enough to lift that
thing in an out on your trips I would think you could just run to any
side trips less than 20 miles that you wanted to see.
thanx for the kind responses guys,
there's a bit of an issue with my current ride
being that it has the N03 big tank option and
let's just say that "going away" space is juuuuust
a little squeezy!
anything more than a toothbrush and a pair of
jocks/boxers etc and there ain't much room to
i am always looking to add another vette to the
stable, but i just saw an ad in the paper couple days
ago for a 2006 Z06 soemeone's trying to flog
maybe next year.....
Just a bit of trivia, the C5/C6 requirement was to be able to fit TWO golf
bags in the trunk (boot). The logic was that many Corvette drivers would be
golfers and wouldn't want to have to drive two cars or another one to go

You guys need a coupe. :) Our C6 accommodated quite comfortably
our two fully loaded parachute bags, a hunting rifle and ammo, and our
two beagles when we took an 8 hour trip from Maryland to Rhode Island.
A quick image before I sent it through photoshop cleanup.

Yep, different strokes as they say. Our 05 is a DD so the coupe was
the way to go. Even used it to take a bag a trash to the dump last
Saturday. Got some strange looks from the pickup boys.....
The claim is correct. "Two large bags."
Works if you're playing a 3-par -- no driver,
just irons & short putter.
Porsche has always made a *very* big thing
about this. GM learned, early-on that it's a
major sales factor.
As long as that second set of clubs, in a bag, are not longer than 43
inches they will fit, a woman's driver is 44/44.5. The fairway woods
wood make it but some time they have to tee up. I really can't comment
on the convertible though as I've never had a C6 that wasn't a coupe,
2 sets were not an issue in a C5 though. There is no problem traveling
in the C6 with a 53" double rifle case but even that has to be on edge
to carry another 50" case with the smaller rifles. As for the golf
bags you will be restricted to a 11" diameter for the one over 43". By
the way, that much weight back there is noticeable and even packing
the rest of the heavier stuff up front you could still feel the affect
at speed. Of course that shouldn't bother anyone as they troddle off
to the local golf course for a day of shooting birdies.
I haven't tried the golf bags in our '03 'vert, but there is really a
lot of room back there. We typically pack enough for a 2 week vacation
back there and try to run with the top down unless it rains or the
temperature gets unbearable! I see the C6 lost a bit of space in the
Are you really married ?
IF I took a toothbrush one pair of shoes, and a set of cloths for 2
days (and some quarters for a daily trip to the Laundrymat) I could
never fit 2 weeks of my wives cloths etc in my 98 Vert..heck last time
we did a weekend I had to ship a bunch OUR (yea I'm guilty too) of
purchases home via UPS because of lack of room...
