Of the 300+ ski racks that Thule and Yakima make, there isn't one for my winter ski beast. I have a 99' Police Interceptor that has served as safe, reliable winter transportation for a couple years now. Though skis under 165 cm fit nicely in the trunk, anything longer than that rides shotgun which limits the number of passengers on trips to the hill.
The problem with the Crown Vic is that it has a smooth roof. No gutters, rails, or racks. It also has a decent curve to it. No flat spots at all.
My only option is to permantely mount a rack to the roof, and then a ski rack to that. The car isn't exactly a looker to begin with, so having a rack mounted 24/7 wouldn't be my first choice.
Does anyone know of a ski rack that is detachable? If I have four mounting points permanently on the car, I am fine with that. Thanks for your help!
