The CS Bushman is hard to beat. One of the Swedish Moras would be a good choice, too.

I just got an Ontario Utility Bowie (12"/.150 thick) that's a great item. It's heavier than the regular machetes and has that guard over the grip,so it won't slip off as easily. For the trunk, it's a bargain at $14.00

I did have to grind off the stupid looking tip before it breaks off though. Now it's just a plain vanilla clip point.

Thanks for all of the advice you guys. I think I might go with ptpalpha's set-up. The Gerber Sport Axe seems like a good idea so I won't need a knife do do any chopping tasks. However, I haven't decided for sure which fixed blade knife to use yet. Since it will be in the trunk where moisture is a concern, I think I'd be more comfortable with some sort of a stainless blade rather than a carbon steel one. I'm also going to purchase either a Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel or a Glock Entrenching Tool as well to replace the crappy piece of plastic shovel I have in my trunk now.

Thanks again everyone.
