How about this easy way  (at least, you don't have to alter any saving code):

        Make vehicles objects.  Give them a specific object flag.
        Disallow picking up (same as notake).  However, transfer it to
their inventory when they they take possesion of it - using mount or the
        Do not include it in inventory listings.
        Assume entrance/mount/etc of the item upon load.

        You may want to make obj/mob files for loading up particular stats
for the actual values conferred from each vehicle.  Or maybe not. I guess
it depends on how configureable you want to make it.
