CB man here.  Can't go wrong with a K40 antenna.  The base and whip
come apart with a twist of the wrist, and you can just install 
the whip when you need it.  All that is left is a 1" high black 
round mount on the trunk lid, hardly noticable.

If all you want is car to car, you can even use the antenna inside the
car, or there is a splitter that will let you use your radio antenna.
But I would recommend the K40 as a good solution that will let you
talk a lot further away than 1-2 car lengths!
