    Question Help! Trunk rack for a car

    Does anyone know what kind of trunk-mount rack would fit on a 1998 Saturn SL2 w/ a rear-spoiler? I know Thule models won't fit the SL2 at all. I'm looking for something to get my bike whereever I go.

    Check out the Saris Bones. It should go over the spoiler.

    I had one of those old Hollywood racks...

    ...and if memory serves me correctly, it should clear a not-too-extreme spoiler. Should also be one of the least expensive ones out there. Worked very well--didn't interfere with opening/closing trunk lid, didn't leave marks, carried the bike(s) securely.

    Yakima makes one; I forget the name.

    I bought a Yakima for my spoiler-equipped Protege5 that's supposed to fit most spoilered cars, and it looks like it would--there's lots of room. Can't remember the model, but I got it at REI and it's something like Loco Joe. About $75, I think.
