I am not sure the number of people in the defender would readily impact whether or not I waved. Of course I always wave at big dogs. LOL

Car trips were the reason these where and are made.
Or if you can find an old one.
I am sure there are people here that can build one.
FWIW, we drove cross-country and camped out of a Festiva with 2 dudes, a dog, and all of our gear inside the car, and had an absolute blast. Our fun was so contagious that a girl took a liking to my buddy and decided to join us, even with 3 folks and the dog we still had a good time. On the way back, I met a girl who decided to join us too but that's a story for another time....

when i say dog im talking 2 130lbs dogs each with its own suitcase (food, meds, supplies, toys). yeah, we dont travel light.
ps. no roof rack on the car though which makes all the difference. had a blast too but i was crying at that one roadsite store where i couldnt buy all the deli i wanted due to lack of a fridge (or space to put fridge in). aaaaah!!
if i left luggage management to my misses we could do it in a versa with stuff piled up to the sun visor of the front windshield. but you mileage can vary
I've done Milwaukee, WI to Portland, OR and back in a Civic, a Suzuki SX4, and a Scion xB (one way in that vehicle). Small cars definitely pose a challenge when packing. I've also traveled with four rommates from St. Paul, MN to Corpus Christi, TX (and back) in a Nissan Sentra on spring break in college. That was a bit tight.
I'm already a member of couchsurfing!
I'm glad you actually reminded me of it. I totally forgot about them.
