Default In-car Camera Mount

I've always wanted to get a mount for the car. Last time I was home, I grabbed the tripod for our video camera (the tripod hasn't been used in at least 5 years) and took it back to school with me. I need to get some clips like Bill used for his mount, but even these zipties worked surprisingly well, haha.
For my test I decided to drive up Stumptown Rd just southwest of campus. My CC team does repeat tempo/hills on this 1.4 mile stretch which begins at the end of the bridge and climbs 200ft to the Stop Ahead sign at the top. It'* a fun road to drive too
I took the video at about 5:15 pm so it'* starting to get a little dark, plus it was cloudy so that didn't help. I'm not sure what the high pitched hum is coming from on the recording since it'* not the car My mic must suck or something. Anyway, hope you enjoy it! (~19mb/1:45)

Here'* my ghetto setup which I'll improve on later.

Haha, yeah I wasn't overly fast Probably 45-55. I'm paranoid that I'll record my own death or something, or hitting a curb
