Yes, it's a beautiful drawing, and it's what got me thinking about departure angles. Winter has a way of making streets narrower, parking spaces shorter, and roads much more uneven.

If the top and sides are a continuation of the existing curvature, tufts should be minimally agitated. It's the transition from top to side that should be interesting.

As MetroMPG said last April, "First one to post video of tuft testing an Insight boat tail wins!". Well, you've got Mod of the Year, and maybe you can go after the prize for that less-well-publicized contest too.
