how do you put your plane in your car securely?

I am looking for a way to put my plane in my car safely, I have a compact sedan , I need to fold the back seat then put fuselage and wings inside, I am thinking about something made of foam to secure them(my car doesn't have any hook in the trunk), how do you guys do it?

I built a cradle out of 3/4" PVC Pipe and covered the parts that touch the airplane with pipe insulation foam. I didn't glue it together so that I could take it apart if need be (or fix my sprinklers with it). I'll try to post a pic tonight but it's a pretty simple doodaad.

Since all my planes have landing gear I make wheel chocks with hook Velcro on the bottoms. The wheels fit into the cups about to the hubs and I have never had one break loose from the chocks! Just saw them out in several wheel sizes with my band saw and use plywood sides.
