I got 11 cavers in my Montego saloon between the Hesp Alyn car-park and the pub at the top of the hill.

Well, if we are playing those games:

LWB Land Rover ("borrowed from Geog Dept.") from Plume of Feathers to UBSS Hut. Can't remember the total number but there were 17 on the roof.

We had six cavers plus kit in a Fiat 126 freewheeling down the hill towards Llandovery from Herbert's Quarry.  Managed about 5 miles without having to engage gears but the suspension was never the same again.

It would never have made it up hill! My wife got hers home once with one cylinder not firing though - & they only have 2!
