I've had 2 trannies, slicks, jack, tools, luggage in the back seat/trunk, on a trip to Ohio. I did remove the rear seat though.

I've got a pic around here somewhere of sonoma'* car packed for the track in my driveway. Jacks and slicks in the back with the seat removed. Gas cans too, or were they in the trunk?

Yeah, I had a fully dressed and full of fluid 71 Buick 350 sitting in the trunk of my 93 SSEi, along with a 71 TH350 in the back seat with some incidentals that I drove 60 miles with in the trunk. It was a site to see (stopped to visit tracy, SingsCountry1967 on the way home.)

Not too much weight. We were able to fit three tires into the back of a grand prix (97=03) and five or six inside the back seat.. but we just ended up two in the trunk two in the back.

Lol even without the trannies that car was packed when you were at Byron.
