Smile Hello - a quick introduction

Hi Josh,

Like you I'm a new forumer. Facsinated by all the ideas.

I am interested in this forum and the participants desire to save fuel. I'm a senior trim engineer in the auto industry and am very concerned at the lack of pace of change - especially fuel economy.

My work requires me to drive 40000 miles a year and am forever designing a sleek economic vehicle to get to work. My latest thought is a modern version of the Renault GTA610 with a smaller engine.

Does anyone recall a Ford concept vehicle with the small engine mounted at the rear? Guessing mid-90's? I can't find any record of it on the web. From memory it had a Cd of 0.21, which betters the Renault's 0.3 by a long ways, yet using the same philosophy.

Keep up your mods and experiments.
