Question about car ski carriers/racks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Didn't think this was a question worthy of the "Gear Forums", so I'll just throw it out here. (please redirect me as needed) Is there a company anywhere that still makes the old style car top (butterfly) ski carriers? You know, the ones from the prehistoric 80's that were great, inexpensive, universal fit ski racks that just used adjustable straps that were secured to the rain gutter or door seam of a car with no $500 mounting system required. My old one went missing in our last move and i can't seem to find a new one (or used for that matter) anywhere. I have a 20 year old car that works just fine for getting me to the local hill and back. A Thule/Yakima or similar type rack would cost more than the car is worth at this point. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

I've regularly seen gutter mount and other vintage ski racks on Craigslist. Give it a try if you haven't already.
