Ok, one really stupid question coming up ....

Getting my R34 soon and one thing I forgot to check was if my fishing rods will fit (I guess they won't fit inside). Can you get roofracks to fit R34's ? If not anyone got any other suggestions ? Keeping the mondeo just for the odd fishing trip seems a bit OTT somehow (and expensive).

Come on Grebo you are avin a larf surely ?
You would be drummed out before you started if you put a roof rack on it :D
How about those clip on gutter racks that hold rods, used to have a set years ago for my fly rods, least they come off easy and are harsd to spot :rolleyes:

They will fit inside. I can get a 12ft one (you know the kind with 3 made up & 3 not made up) & JRC bed chair in mine easily. Just put the front passenger seat right down & lay them in diagonaly. Wouldn`t have thought the R34 would be that much different.
Another fisher person. Cool. Im off tomorrow.

Ok, cheers eddie, I'll give it a go. Might be a tight fit cos I've got a couple of 2 piecers, my rod bag is over 5 foot long, it only just fits inside the mondeo and that's a hatchback.

Your a bit of a dark horse Mr grebo,
Didnt tell me you were in the green welly brigade, if i'd have known I would have put a few maggots and Luncheon meat in the boot of your new car to make you feel right at home!
Too late now, we give special discounts to Fishermen.

I dunno, we spent all day making it really spiff, and your going to put boilies, campbed, 8ft rod bags and a smelly landing net in the car.
If your quick , I'll fit a tow bar so you can get a trailer from Halfords for the morning!

Anyway how do Carp rods stay on a roof rack at 155 MPH ??

See you around 11am

Cheers

Maybe not, toying with the idea of keeping old faithfull for fishing and shopping trips, and maybe to use when the roads turn to slime and ice.
