How tall can my Christmas tree be and fit on my sedan roof?

We have very high ceilings in our apartment and can get a tall tree, but we would like to avoid renting a truck and I don't think any of our nearby friends have the type of vehicle that would be better. If we must, we will further investigate those options or delivery or whatever, but first I want to rule out using my own car. I've never transported anything on my own roof and I have no rack but I know trees get home this way all the time. I'm happy to go nuts tying it down as long as we're being safe. I know there's a weight limit listed for my car. What's the practical/legal length limit and what is it based on (roof, car length)?
