GUILTY PLEASURE #8

WHAT?: Roof racks on cool cars

WHY THE GUILT?: Ever seen a car driving around the UK in summer with ski holders on their roof rack? That’s just plain daft, unless of course they’ve snapped up a season pass to the local dry ski slope. It’s just posing and that’s about it. As for aerodynamics, roof racks have got to be up there with truck wing mirrors in the drag factor, which means a kick in the teeth for fuel economy. Basically, they can just seem a bit pointless.

WHERE’S THE PLEASURE?: On the other hand though, roof racks do suggest adventure. Whether it’s used to carry track day wheels and tyres, a surfboard, camping gear or a bike, the stuff carried on a roof generally points to good times. When it’s carried on the roof of a cool car then it just looks like you’ll be having a blast on the way to and from those good times too. Plus, you can always take a roof rack off.
