Car face/nose.......................

Hucho's book has the complete development of the "ideal" nose by Volkswagon,including windtunnel photos.Chrysler Aerospace beat them to the punch in 1967,when they developed the front for the NASCAR Dodge Daytona which swept the field.MG beat Chrysler in the 50s with their EX "pumpkin seed".Bucky Fuller beat MG in the 1930s.The list goes back 500-million years.Go to an Asian market and buy a frozen mackeral.That fish will tell you all you'll ever need to know about streamlining.
