Not much lateral stability once you come off that roof rack. Looks like trouble to me.

Awesome


There is a guy I see at the track often with some sort of kit car type thing that he loads in the back of an old short school bus.. He unloads it with a couple 2x4 ramps the thing is so light

I saw a pic of that on Tumblr and thought it was interesting. I will look for it and post it here.

Yes, but you couldn't get underneath access as easily - granted with that car everything can probably be gotten to from above.
