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.

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.
