My understanding is that a 1/2 wave doesn't have quite the gain of a 5/8. However, it doesn't need a groundplane.

My concern with the roof is breaking it off pulling into the garage late at night. I've hit my mag-mount CB hard enough to tip it over.

Knowing what I know right now, I'm seriously considering a 1/2 wavelength antenna on the front bumper.

I need to do some more antenna homework...
