Hey! I resemble that remark and miss my old ride. :-)

You actually might want to invest in a hitch and a hitch carrier. I know, redneck, but you can actually get hidden hitches (the Reese Shadowmount is a good example of one.) Some are recessed far under, and some are two-part so you can take the visible part off when you're not using it.

I have a hitch and hitch bike rack on my car. With the bike rack off the hitch is very hard to see.

I will try to post a picture of it tonight when I get home from work.

I have a Sportworks Mod bike rack that I love. works great.

a hitch on a camaro might be set pretty low, you wouldn't want your rack hitting the ground would ya?

My rack came with a Riser that lifts the rack about 6-8" above where the Hitch receiver is.
