since my blazer i had bought for the winter to avoid drive the riv in the snow failed its emisions tests badly. And i dont want to spend the money on that hunk to repair it i need a solution to haul my snowboard to the ski hill. I know alot of people will hate me for segusting this but i was thinking about a roof rack but nothing perminite. I saw these magentic one on line for 100 dollars and was woundering if any 1 tried theses ouy.

i dont think it will fit in my trunk, never tried but prob not, and i care to much about my car to but it on the seat even with it in a bag, i was thinking about 1 of theses but dont know how it would work with the sunroof. http://www.rackattack.com/product-pages/rv-inno-mv276-magnetic-ski-and-snowboard-carrier.asp

I have a roof rack, Thule mounting brackets and bars. I used the front mounts from the Riviera's "official" thule mount, but the rears - I used my own method - I had thule mounts for my '94 Regal, which fit inside the door, I found they would nicely clamp around the mid-section of the roof. Then I put my ski rack/box/whatever on top of the rails.

So, I have the other two Riv mounts, plus my other two regal mounts, I'd sell them if you are really interested. You'll need to get your own bars though.
