Enjoyable little ride out, thanks for posting it.
And the trick is a "dead cat" (not a real one - you can get them at Joanns Fabric store, for about $2.50, they are called Poms) over the mic and a suction cup half way down the back of the trunk to clip the mic on to. The camera rig is made out of harbor freight suction cups and PVC pipe.

I chose the GoPro 3+ Black since it was the best for that year and had an outlet for an external microphone. If you buy a new one it is over $500 and all you get is the camera. E-bay you get the camera and allot of the accessories too, since many of the listings are a package deal. The accessories are outrageous if you buy GoPro.

Originally I was using my Nikon coolpix S8100. It worked but now well, I couldn't figure a way to suppress the wind noise.
