>No one ever works a contest from their car.

The NCJ reported about an entry in the 1999 ARRL 160 I did from the cab of
my truck (technically not a car).

In 2000 I operated it out of a minivan.

(Now that the shack is built, I operate indoors like most people.)

The 1983 CQWW 2nd Place World XE2SI Multi-Multi took place 100% out of
vehicles.  Some were cars.

There is a whole category for rovers in the VHF contests.  Many of them are
cars.  Few are larger than a camper.

Try it, it's really fun.  Cramped, yes.  You do have to get out and stretch
your legs.
