    I opted for a slightly different car than the esteemed Yugo:

    Now to stay on topic, this little hotrod fits my Adams Euphonium better than a Yamaha Neo because the Marcus Bonna case is trimmer and goes into the small trunk opening better.

  4. This little hot rod (actually just a sports car) has had 2 x Euphonium, 1 x 3/4 CC Tuba, my roll-on suitcase, and my CPAP case on a 900 mile ride to the USABTEC in DC and return through NYC to greater Boston area. It is my "Euphoniumobile". Not as fast as John Morgan's, but still fun.

    That is a great, actually an outstanding looking ride, Doug, no doubt, and carries way more than the Mustang (by the way, no back seat in my Laguna Seca version, numbered from 1-750, but just a cover for where the seat would be and a big metal car stiffening brace in the back). And the trunk fits just about my wonderful Adams euphonium, five golden rings and a partridge that fell out of our pear tree. I suppose I could put some musical stuff in the back "area", but sort of no way to bolt any of it down. And then there is the issue of trying to actually get anything of size "in" the back area, there is a severe lack of space to accomplish this maneuver. I could probably put a blowup doll (un-blownup) back there, the kind people use to trick highway cameras into thinking there are more people in your car than just you, for purposes of driving in the HOV lanes. Then add a blowup euphonium, and once in the back area, blow them both up and have the doll playing the euphonium. I am trying to picture this, I think I like it.

    Ah well, it IS a race car, so I don't think one would expect it to be big on room, storage, typical modern car niceties and such, although it does have a few nice features inside the cabin, such as a CD player which I can use to play all of my euphonium CD's. And it does have this other feature called the ability to go faster than any sane person should ever try.

    My Mustang is so fast that if the aforementioned doll played a note on the blowup euphonium as I was driving (racing) down the road, the only one who would hear it is the person in the car behind me. And all cars are behind me when I am in the Mustang.
