I should've been more specific -- the double bass, not the bass guitar. Ain't goin' in no trunk!
The way I got it into the Accord was to fold the rear seat down, remove the front passenger seat headrest, put the instrument in through the right rear door neck-first pointing over the driver's seat, then rotate it (trying not to whack the rear-view mirror, which I wound up doing anyhow about 25% of the time) so that the headstock was over the passenger seat and the tailpin was a few inches into the trunk. It didn't quite fit with the rear seat up.
When I borrowed a slightly larger bass, I had to open the driver's door first, diagonally opposite the door I put the bass in through. So yeah, it's going to be a matter of door dimensions as well as internal dimensions, but even with all those numbers I'll need to either test-fit the bass myself or hear from someone who has done so.
, I'll wind up with a cheap, uber-reliable, fuel-efficient station-wagon, five-door, or hatchback, at which point I'll be able to carry the bass
a passenger. But I'm not holding my breath.
(The bass does fit into a Mazda 323 hatchback along with a driver and a passenger plus a [standard] poodle. Though there wasn't very much room left for the poodle.)
