Car Services and snowboard bags
 
Does anyone know if a snowboard travel bag (165cm) will fit in the trunk of a Lincoln Town Car? I'm going to take a car service to the airport and needed to know if a Town Car will work or if I should get a minivan instead

Thanks!

If you put the seat down and stick it through the trunk, otherwise not even close.

I don't have experience with this but there's no way in hell it'll fit in the trunk. Ask for a minivan.

unfortunately, town car back seats don't fold down

According to the dimensions here, the trunk seems to have about 64" available (162.5cm). It may work if you tilt it slightly, but if it's off by a tiny amount, it will be a bummer :)

I'm guessing there may be a passenger or two in the back seat. It would be a mighty uncomfortable ride that way :)

It will probably fit in the trunk horizontally provided your board isn't too long. I can fit two snowboard bags into a NYC yellow taxi (the Crown Victoria sedan) without a problem provided I "squish" the ends of the bag where its just empty space (my board is 154cm). The Lincoln towncars are pretty spacious too.

Nope. Won't fit.
I've tried it a couple of times.
The driver put my bag in the back seat (I was travelling alone to the airport).
Gotta get a minivan if you have people in the back seat.

Duct tape and bungee cords. Done.
