I've been thinking that the drip rail down the front of the doors on a VW bus is well within the frontal area. A serrated Gurney flap there would be exposed on the leeward side and could have a similar effect if it were sized appropriately maybe 1/2" to 1 1/2" serrations? Worth a Photoshop?
It would have to 'travel', fore and aft, around on the body, as the apparent wind spectra could be constantly changing orientation.
