Gibbonboy will become famous soon enough

The C Crane FM antenna gets phenomenal reception, if you're not in a "fringe" area, it can be too much, you'll get multiple stations on frequency. Also, it has an "F" connector, most automotive radios have a "Motorola" connector, so you'd need an adapter.

Receive amplifiers are perfectly legal as long as they conform to FCC Part 15, which will be 99.9% of purchased electronics. Anything that transmits is more strictly regulated, you won't need to worry about that in your case.

Find the best outdoor-rated antenna you can afford, put it as high as you can, keep it in the clear away from large metal objects (and powerlines!), you'll be golden.
