Pinto revisited

Darin,you were the one to remind me that CAR and DRIVER's low-hanging Pinto front airdam still registered lower drag( ie.better mpg),so I had to give it a yea.Bondo did get in trouble on his F-150 with a "low" front airdam,and only restored mpg after clipping it back higher.Your clearance violates the SAE recommendations for "approach" clearance angle but you know that and I'm sure your driving technique will compensate for it.---------- If you get in trouble,a pair of scissors will remedy it.Anxious to here about numbers.
