|Bike Rack for a Datsun Z||laffeaux|

|I'm trying to figure out the best way to mount a bike rack on a old Datsun Z. I really want to avoid a rack that's held on with straps as it would need to be removed every time I opened the hatch.
Has anyone ever owned a Z and figured out how to add a rack? The roof seems to short for a roof rack, and there's not many option for hitches. What have others done?

|I,ve owned several old Z cars but never put a rack on one. A 240 or 260 should be able to fit a bike in the hatchback. I used to carry mine there all the time. A 280 doesn't have the room. I'm not sure about a roof rack because of the short roof and flimsy water channels. I bet it would look pretty cool though. A hitch rack might be your best bet.
What year is the Z?

|It's a '71 240. I can get a bike inside, but I'm thinking about a road trip, and I'd like to take a bike and luggage.|| |
