    i am considering putting a bike rack *gasp!* on my mustang.
    parking is HORRIBLE on campus and i end up parking a mile away most days. i usually walk, but it takes up SO much extra time that i don't have to spare.

    i'm not the strongest person in the world, nor am i the most coordinated. it would be incredibly inconvenient for me to try and work a bike in and out of my trunk two times a day....

    this is the best looking one i've found so far.
    it might not be TOO awkward...??

    what do you think of that?? is it was too stupid looking for a mustang?
    i'd only use it to class and back... it looks pretty easy to take off and put on, so i really wouldn't even have it on there except for to class and back...

    would it be a shame to my poor little mustang??:shrug:

    trunk mount hitches will eventually chip and wear at the paint.

    i do a fair bit of biking, and am planning to go the hidden hitch + hitch rack route.. but then i have some other considerations, like opening up hurricane evacuation options and taking multiple bikes on long distance trips.

    for the cost, you could get a really fantastic alarm clock, get to the parking lot 8 minutes early, and have enough left to buy a whole 'nother bicycle. ;)

    I got to do it........

    You are the stereo typical V6 Mustang owner to a T! :rlaugh: Anyone that would consider buyin a GT would NEVER put a bike rack on it.

    So props to you for sticking with the V6.

    Not trying to be rude...its just a perfect scenario.
