Wireless Card for laptop - external antenna?


Anyone know of a known compatible 802.11g/b card either pcmcia or ideally USB 2.0 that has an external antenna nubbin (hi-tech term) on it?
I've read volumes on oronico gold and silver cards and how they can be attached to an external antenna, but on the actual website:
http://www.proxim.com/products/wifi/client/goldpccard/ it doesn't mention it as far as I can tell...

I want to get a portable wireless card to interface with my Dell Inspiron 1100 (which has pcmica obviously, as well as USB 2.0) and be able to attach a very powerful antenna on my car and connect it to the wireless card. Ideally, there's a card or device that already has a decent antenna attached that can be easily unscrewed and replaced with a more powerful one.

These are some inspiration sites I've found relating to the antenna idea that I'd like to explore:
