I work with folks that worked on the Saturn Bonneville stuff. I'll ask if that was a wind tunnel developed setup. If so, I may be able to find some data.

Just a minor correction--the Jetta LSR did not have a decklid extension when I saw it at the LeMay Museum in 2014, or in the photos from Bonneville.





Threadjack over. Carry on!

Thanks Vman! I didn't think senility would come on this fast! It's good to have extra sets of eyes out there.
