This GS looked really good with a bike rack on top!

The thread says it was a Yakima Bike Rack.

I think they look great with roof mounted bike racks. More sport then Luxury or VIP in my opinion so the rest of the car must be sport too. M32's car was a perfect example.

all the JDM posers are doing it and don't even ride...

I'd say its much better than buying a truck for sure. Kiss whatever gas mileage you get goodbye though. I'm sure you plan on taking it off when you're not biking. I wonder how hard it is to get off and on?

Ha, strange thread, but I do. I suggest purchasing one that you can take off. I have a trunk rack that fits under my spoiler and attaches perfectly. It's funny seeing a dropped GS roll up to the trails but I get head turns everywhere, it's just more head turns there. I used to disassemble my bike and fit it inside, but with this rack I put it on when I need it and take it off when I'm done.

You know, you remind me I've got a Yakima SST roof rack I used on my old Camry and when I got my GS in 1999 I went and purchased the right clips for it to go on my GS.

If you're not in a hurry (pretty busy for next few weeks) and if you'll pay for the actual postage (and box if I have to buy one) I'll give it to you. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to find most of the parts and you might have to figure out which ones go on the GS and which were for the Camry. I don't think I ever put it on the GS other than one test fit, so they may still be in plastic.
