VW transporter 2.5 tdi chipped, quick and small (ish) gets me to the beach before the wind dies anyway! and it does 30-40 mpg depends how you drive it and where............

I use Mercedes G-class. It fits all my gear + my friends windsurfing gear. And I don´t even have to use roof racks.

And my other car is Austin Mini (the Mr.Bean car). It also fits all my things, but it demands asphalt roads :D

On a nice day, I use my old Isuzu Trooper. A weekend with the sawzal and a used roll bar from criagslist and an old car becomes fun again.
