I get made  fun of when I talk about doing that.  Soon I will have a floppy cb antenna on my rear bumper though.

Any roof rack system designed for old school rain gutters should work. I have a Thule on mine. If you install bike rails though mount them backwards or you risk putting the rail through the back window of your hatch if you open it too far!

I had a rain gutter roof rack and basket on my Kammback a few years back, then changed to the more streamlined look  ;)
