I don’t think I would do THAT. However I can’t tell you of the things I have carried home on top of my car, hung off the side of my car, and hung beneath by car. I used to keep plenty of 1/4” braided nylon rope in my trunk along with some “S” hooks, an old sleeping bag, and some “C” clamps. The “S” hooks fit into some holes beneath the ends of bumpers to which I tied one end of a piece of rope per bumper end. I then laid the old sleeping bag over the roof for a cushion, placed the plywood on top of the roof, placed the “C” clamps on the corners of the plywood (clamping down from one to four sheets of plywood), and then lashed the rope coming from the bumpers to the “C” clamps. Never had a problem. I have carried long pieces of lumber and long pieces of steel tubing by placing it on the driveway then driving the car over them lengthwise. Rope was used to lift and tie the ends to the bumpers. The load didn’t drag on the ground but you had to watch out for crests and dips in the road – usually at intersections or entering driveways – or the load would drag. Again I never had a problem.

You mean that’s not a prototype soviet-design glider-car? If they just mounted the “wings” higher (on the roof) the video could get REALLY interesting!
