Small window fix antennas are available.

When I have the CB in the car, I use a magnetic antenna base and 1/4 wave (12 cm) wire antenna. I mounted my CB to a piece of that flute board stuff. That then slides up between the transmission tunnel carpet and the centre console so that the CB sits vertical on the pax side. Powered from the ciggy lighter. Works extremely well, full range and easy to remove.
