Oh, I like that Toyota pick-up truck.

Before Photobucket screwed us all I posted something/sketches similar. Similar if they tapered it in plan that is.

Pale Moon won't accept the Photobucket-fix extension so I can't look through some old threads, but wasn't there one where someone cut up a fiberglass canopy to make a partial aerocap? Before moving on to a full aerocap?

kach22i — I like the Slow Moving Vehicle signs, but (per US regulation) they should have the tips cut off

Aerohead this car has the aero features running down the C piller I was speeking of .

Hear is a 1977 280Z with blowen snow redneck wind tunnel @~0 yaw.
sorce:Fuel Economy, Hypermiling, EcoModding News and Forum - EcoModder.com - teknomage2012's Album: 1977 280Z 2+2 Turbo Intercooled Diesel


Close up of the" C piller Turning Vains "

Notice the Duck Butt (1sided kam back) mother Gaia installed at the back. Also pay attention to how she fixed the antenna mount , and solved the puzzle on the most effective patch for recessed glass/rain gutters.. some of the things I notice

Better view of the Duck Butt . It appears that gravity took its turn in the creative process when/as the wind died down. Causing the abnormally tight curve like a duck tucking tail. With out the up wash coming around the bumper(lower recirculation bubble) with enough force to support the tail feathers they fell.

Duck Butt

If Gaia had only softened the side-to-top edges,it would be vortex free!
Hey,did you get a USFRA 'Participant' T-shirt after your assault on the salt with Jona?

That's a very instructive set of pictures.

I'm looking for a similarity to T-150 C-pillar 'turning vanes' in vain. Maybe it's because of the open suicide half-door. When I think of flying butter-arses, it's the modern Ford GT40, the VW Golf GTI650-W12 or, for pickups, the Yamaha Cross Hub


http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2017/10/yamaha-designed-pickup-truck-for.html

Back to the pictures: 'Cowl induction' hood, the rooftop vortexes start at the windshield (!), the flattening of the flow aft of the gully between the rear fender flare and fence formed by the side trim, The snowballs on the wheels, the effect of the rear view mirrors. On and on.... Icicles on the tail-lights?

I've been reading about aircrete. It is Portland cement mixed with a 200:1 mixture of water and Dawn dishwashing soap, and a bubble size around 10 microns. One could bury a car in a mound of the stuff (a stiff mixture, with a touch of white glue) parked behind a tubojet like the ones they use to blow out oilwell fires.

A sacriifcial body to make a male mold? But the stuff floats on water, maybe hollow it out with an air tool and paint it?
