Re: bike rack on a shorty?

It would make opening the hood more difficult, and i really like to check my oil and other fluids when i'm on a long road trip.....but i don't see why you can't put a bike rack on the front. You could even use a clever hinge idea to swing the bike out of the way so you can still open the hood quickly and easily.

here is a photo of a transit bus with a bike rack on the front:
