I read somewhere that some ships have a free wheeling fan at the front of their conning tower which deflects the wind sideways, and allows men to stand behind it, with no wind. I have considered a track, similar to those on a tank, which would roll counter to the direction of travel, cover the upper part of the car, and sides, and roll at the speed of the car, so that the air the car passes through doesn't see a moving body, but only a track which moves with the wind at the same speed. I wish I could draw an animation.
