  I too have operated contests from a car. Have done ARRL SSB and CW that way
long ago.
  PLUS!!!!! What about all the state QSO parties that ask mobile stations 
to go
out and make contacts...I can think of quite a few folks, that basically only
operate from their car in contests and drive many miles through many states 
to do so.
Some of these folks are "strictly" CW ops as well.
  Oh yeah, the County Hunter Contests (SSB and CW) feature these operations
as well. Don't forget that FD has a mobile category.
  So I don't think the mobile antenna question is out of line at all.
BTW  IMHO, the ONLY antenna to use mobile is the Bugcatcher!
