How the **** would you get a 55gal compressor in a Miata? I've got a 60 gal compressor I doubt that it would even fit, and if it did I can't imagine driving with it in the car since it is so top heavy.

i hauled a boss frog double hoop (unmounted, duh!), a set of 15x8 wheels with a set of azenis for those wheels on my red miata once. a tire fell off at one point - that was kind of scarry.

maybe i shouldnt have clutch-kicked into a turn at 30mph with all that **** in a car?

Passenger seat with top down, standing up and tied to roll bar...it sucked! But I had no choice...i had to drive on the highway about 15miles...people kept staring at me

Yep, lots of cars do this, simply remove the passenger seat. Funny to load it in though, gotta watch out.

I think the most I ever had in the car was 4 mounted 14"s and 4 loose 14's at the same time. Not much to be honest.

Took a fish tank stand once and had it in between me and my friend, and a 10 gallon fish tank and accessories in the trunk. I had my friend see last month if I could fit in my trunk, I definitely can.
