It's actually easier than that in Mac OS — Shft-Cmd-3 for full screen, or Shft-Cmd-4 for cropped and it's already on the Desktop.

But you lose the original file name and all provenance.

That looks like a GMC motorhome from the 70's.

2011 Nissan ESFLOW Concept
Concept Flashback - 2011 Nissan Esflow Showed Potential EV Mini-Z


More images here:

The roof angle is a tad steep, but looks aerodynamic to me, maybe more cute than aero, but all is forgiven. Add to it a possible electric drive-train and that should keep Cd reasonable.

Short bodies are just tough to do right.

I notice the pronounced crown in the windshield header, and the way the side windows fall off with your need to know.

I'm reminded of the Auto-Union Streamliner


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Streamlined_Auto_Union.jpg

edit:
Well, I'm far down the rabbit-hole now. Looking for 1930s streamliners, I found Auto-Union Project: DKW's 1933 rear engined streamliner and from there I got to Auto-Union Project: Framo

I'd never heard of Framo. Once they were past the wood-bodied tricycle stage they produced this:


Quote:
The DKW F1 debuts at the 1931 Berlin Auto Show. When released it was the cheapest conventional car on the German market and was many German families first experience of motoring. Despite its simplicity and budget price the car had several radically new features, not least being its front-wheel drive - the first in any production vehicle. It spawned a long lineage of front-wheel drive cars leading all the way to our modern Audi and Volkswagen cars.
This vehicle predates Citroen (1934?) and is the ultimate ancestor of my Dasher diesel. Then, to bring us back on-topic, they produced this, the Framo-Goritz streamliner:




Wow. Just ....wow.

I wonder what the door(s) look like? The rear passenger having to straddle the front seat has its problems.

Framo Stromer
Auto-Union Project: Framo


Quote:
Rasmussen's first project at Framo was the Stromer - a highly aerodynamic streamlined three-wheeled budget vehicle. Built around a simple tube chassis, which was hollow and doubled as the exhaust. The car was front wheel drive, powered by a 200cc air-cooled DKW motorcycle engine, driving through a three speed gearbox with reverse. Although powered by a very small engine, the car was extremely light at only 300 kilograms unloaded, which allowed it to reach 60 KPH.......................

.......... and false radiator screen

I don't think the production seats were in the chassis photo, both seats are a butt pad with a metal tube loop for back support. Maybe there was a lower back pad but we cannot see from this angle. The seat straddling does not look dress friendly, I bet women hated the tandem seating.

Framo-Goritz Streamliner
Auto-Union Project: Framo

Quote:
Several versions of the car were built and presented to the Government for evaluation, much to their annoyance. The automobile association demonstrated the car's impracticality by assigning their tallest SS test driver to drive the car in a 12 hour endurance test. Needless to say the driver's report was less than complimentary. In 1938 the Schell Plan put a stop to all further passenger car development at Framo.
Hatters gotta hate, someone in the automobile association had it out for this car.

EDIT:
Looks like we are reposting cars from 2014, page 98

Interesting Aerodynamic Cars (Mike Vetter's ETV, also Avion)

Hey, it's like seeing it all over again for the first time.

All is good.

Your link is self-referential. Permalink #98 was on 20100920.

...If you view at 40/page it's only up to 65 pages, but vBulletin gives it a shot.

Maybe it's the name, but I like the Framo Volkswagen:



But the DKW Schwebeklasse isn't half bad:


Quote:
DKW's Spandau karosseriewerkes adapted the streamlined body concept for the next mode, the Schwebeklasse, released in 1934. The complex curves and indentations of the Schwebeklasse were a pinnacle of the wooden karosserie's art.
