0.201 cd Camaro

Car Aerodynamics - Hot Rod Magazine

A very vague Hot Rod magazine article. How did they get this Camaro down to a 0.201 drag coefficient? It doesn't seem to jive with what I see in this forum.

"The biggie: windshield rake: According to Eaker, "Here's a myth I can bust. Once the windshield is past 45 degrees of rake-and many stock cars average like 60 degrees-you will not see an improvement from laying it down at an even steeper angle." We proved this on the Camaro, building a hugely sloped "windshield" out of foam core. It did nothing."

A 45* windshield is old car territory. I want to use an old car for mpg aero.
