Not un-aerodynamic enough, try this:

It's got a collapsible steering column (well, drag link). For Safety!
I may be the odd man out here, but that is seriously cool. Steampunk stuff is neat. I'd ride it.

Maybe with a transmission setup similar to the Isetta, it could be made driveable. But that steering setup with chains would need to get a replacement for the sake of reliability.

Its as stock as I was able to restore it, since most of the parts have not been made in a hundred years. So I had to use what I could get that were as close to the original as possible. Those are mountain bike tires on hand cart wheels.
Alrighty then. A wheel and tire upgrade has become popular over the last 1.13 centuries.

There a number of big-wheeled Model A Fords. Here's another:

Maybe it would be compared to Donald Duck's car instead, since its tyres have bigger sidewalls while donks are fitted with low-profile tyres that look more like a slice of duct tape wrapped around the edge of an oversized pizza pan.

This is my friends '39 Pontiac Chieftain. While its been smoothed and customized. Its still not a truly an "aero" car. So I figured I'd throw some pic's on here.
