I'm pretty certain that freebeard or someone has covered the volksboot,but 'over-reporting' may not be a sin with this sort of thing.

I'd heard of it, but that low rear 3/4 view set my mind to wandering.

When it opens up it's like a pop-up book. Four posts spring up with a pape origami canopy. Probably white, with brass detail.

update

This project has languished now for years (seems to be my standard operating procedure!).
I'm creating a segmented tail for the truck,which,when combined with a fake single wheel and fairing,will be measured at the DARKO wind tunnel,to simulate a fully-gap-filled,(nearly)-full-boat-tailed,1-wheel trailer.
Rather than try to figure something out from on-road testing,this will be a way to isolate and capture aero data in a laboratory setting, where all other variables can be ruled out.
I've been especially curious about the potential for BamZipPow's Dark Shadow,1-wheeler,and this will be a way to 'look' at it with a proxy.
Testing is set for September 15,2017.

For Phil Knox this is the Stella Vie, the aerodynamic test mule for a long distance solar power five passenger car I told you about on the phone.

FWIW I started a thread on here for that: Stella Vie - A 5 seater luxury solar racer!
