This is the crew car at KHOT in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Yes, the carpet is stained in the back in questionable places. Went to a good BBQ place there near the airport.

EDIT: The BBQ place is "Smoking in Style."

This was the ride my crew partner and I got at KLFK in Lufkin, Texas. Got stuck five days down there. The Hampton Inn is nice, nothing to do at the small airport but eat at the little restaurant; when it's actually open.

The truck was really sticky and gross on the inside, but most small town crew cars are like that. Still wearing county tags on the door and plates. The left rear window is loose, and every time you hit a bump it rattles like it is about fall out. So don't plan on keeping anything valuable in the truck. Overall it wasn't too bad for a crew truck.

If I'm not mistaken, I think the Toyota Tercel was a crew car for one of FBO's at KGKY in Arlington, Texas. I never used it, nor know much about it but when I was at GKY; it seemed as if someone new was driving each time. So, I assume it is a crew car. Looked like the OP's picture of the Pontiac 6000.

The crew car for Executive Aviation in KTBR in Baton Rouge, Louisiana is a white or creme colored Ford Escape, high miles and as always, pretty gross on the inside. I don't think I have a picture of the full car, but that's what I have.

They have Otis Spunkmeyer cookies. Pretty small FBO; and they had a retired FedEx C208CG rotting away on the ramp. The 727 looked in bad shape. I don't think it is airworthy. Not much around the airport as most of it looked to be abandoned back when Katrina hit. We got out of there pretty quickly, but I'm sure there's cool things to do there.

Nice pic's, Brandon. I forgot about this thread for a couple of years and stumble back on it to see you added several pic's I hadn't seen. Unfortunately for my crew car adventures, I have picked up a job where I end up at higher end FBO's that have crew cars that aren't all "sticky" on the inside. That makes for boring pictures!

If your at the Dawson Community Airport in Montana, drive the mid 80's Dodge Caravan to the MaddHatter Restaurant and Casino. Avoid the slots but try the burgers! Some of the best burgers around! Also, check out the retired Neptune Fire Fighter Aircraft at the airport.

Take the Nissan Altima from Atlantic FBO in OKC to Perry's Dinner. The car is boring, but breakfast is the bomb! Steak and Eggs is the way to go!!!

Late to the party, but they gave that thing to crews? My uncle had one, it screamed. I think it was engineered specifically to outrun police package crown vics.

Yes sir, or sometimes the F150 on the other side of the Pontiac. They were both in really good shape also! No rats or stickiness....LOL!!

Flightline First in KNEW has a nice Jeep for a crew car. Lakeside Harbor is the place to drive it to for some great NOLA cuisine if the Messina's Runway Cafe next door to the FBO is closed (Mondays).
