I recently installed a Kenwood TS50S in my Honda Accord and run Hustler resonators on the MO-4 (short) mast, mounted on my trunk lip.  WOW!!  I am getting mobile signals I never dreamed of.  So far on 17 and 15 meters and just starting 20 meters with the same results.  If anyone is thinking of a mobile set up, I can highly recommend this set up.  The only complaint I have with the TS50S is the very small buttons which if you accidently brush against them, will activate.  So while moving you have to be careful.  But this is a minor problem.

I've had similar success when I ran hustler coils, it seemed I could work anything I could hear.  Something you might try for 20M is to use a 15M coil and resonate it with a longer whip (about 4ft).  I ran this setup a lot and it worked very well.  I used the 15M coil and long whips for 17 and 20, so I got 3 bands for the price of one 15M coil.
