My student Mohan remembers seeing someones Toyota Corolla with a nice rack on it. If you own that car could you please post some picks to help Mohan build his rack. Thanks

I have been kicking around the idea of making one for my Corolla (in my spare time). If I follow thru, I'll share my idea. If not I am always willing to steal anothers.

Frank, here are a few shots of the rack setup I made for my Suzuki. Maybe something will give you an idea.

Thanks Mark. I'm a steel kind of guy and started a mental (not metal) plan a while back that would easily attach and detach from the frame. I don't have a tow hitch and was trying to avoid the cost of buying/installing one. I did check out some of the comercially available roof racks and found they too are very pricey. I'll eventually fabricate something but have a few irons in the fire at the moment.

It's not stealing, it's called R&D..... rip off and duplicate
