This seems very likely as a quick look at the old advertisings for 
Spitfires on the VTR Website shows not one car with a luggage rack.

I have the low profile one on my car and will probably find out how well
it works this weekend as I don't think even a small suitcase will fit in
the trunk and I'm headed for Kingston, Ontario.

Just out of curiosity, is anyone else heading north through New York
for this event??  I will be driving up during the day Saturday.  Up
I81 to watertown, over to Cape Vincent, ferry to Wolfe Island.  I am
staying at a hotel on the island and will ferry over to Kingston Sunday
morning.  Back to the island for Sunday night and then home during the
day Monday.
