Thumbs up Spotted: fully streamlined/aeromodded ~2005 Honda Civic sedan (Austin, TX)

Jakins just posted this excellent find...



Looks like a ~2005 Civic with the Full Meal Deal aeromod package:

  • smoothed front bumper with reduced cooling inlet area
  • upper grille block (removable?)
  • deeper than stock air dam
  • front/rear smooth wheel covers
  • wipers covered
  • exterior mirror delete
  • rocker/side skirts
  • rear wheel skirts
  • rear wheel boat-tailing
  • Kammback
Very Mad Max, too!

Kammback, also more effective than those silly sun shade foils.

This picture confuses me. A fully aeromodded Civic is parked facing the curb?

You know you're a hypermiler when...

Parking -- he probably just concluded a .5 kilometer engine-off coast into the parking spot. He'll push it backwards out of the parking spot before he starts the engine.
