    S550 Mustang racks?

    Does anyone have a bike rack on their S550 Mustang? What are you using?

    I'm keen to see pictures of how well a two bike carrier fits, with bikes on it, if possible.

    Right on. I ordered the receiver for this monster two days ago:

    That sure is a funny looking S550 Mustang.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    I'm just glad he's using a car like that to do what he wants There are all sorts of people that freak out when you put a receiver on these cars.

    That is my Mustang on the second row there, the white one. Click it and it takes you to my post on the forum.
    They work well. Had to mount mine backwards since there was too much flex in the roof for my liking. Rear window was a much more stable base on the car vs the roof, at least on mine.
