Same way as an 86.

Also got the Slambert 2.0 and used it a few times this summer. It's solid and does the job. It blocks the lower half of the license plate but I haven't been pulled over about it...yet. This isn't an issue with 1st gen because the license plate is up on the trunk lid.

I have the 1st gen drawtite hitch. it's ''bolt-on'' minus a small cut you have to do at the bottom of the rear bumper.

I also try a Seasucker, but the roof being aluminium, i didn't like it and sold it

Although it is only occasional, I put mine in the trunk with the rear seat folded down, and front wheel removed. (It fits)

I do this with one bike and use a Seasucker for the other when my wife and I go. You just have to be careful putting it in and out with the wheel too. I kept messing up my derailleur alignment doing this constantly.

That's a 1st-gen hitch on a 2nd-gen car? If so... good to know.

We're used to "unsightly" hitches on the backs of our cars, both for towing and for bike racks. I'd rather a bike rack not require removing the front wheel, but it's not a deal-breaker.

I truly wish the local bike shop would remove the "not for sale" tag on the Penny Farthing displayed in the front window, owning one would be a blast, but I doubt any bike rack on the planet would accommodate one on the back.

Yes, the 1st gen fit the 2nd gen. As i said, you only need to make a small cut a the bottom of the rear bumper(not really visible)

I presume it is a 1-1/4" receiver? Not a big deal for towing -- if not, that only requires purchasing a new ball; but our bike rack for my wife's current car plugs into 1-1/4" (the rack is so heavy I would not mind replacing it, except for the expense).
