It's currently on the front page @ http://news.com , but I expect it'll be replaced with something else soon.

It's a slide show, focusing almost entirely on aeromods. There are descriptive captions with each image.

Naturally, basjoos' Aerocivic leads the parade, followed by ...
  • another image of the Aerocivic!
  • an image of a 1947 Tatra T87 to compare to basjoos' car
  • the kardboard partial Kammback prototype on my car
  • AndrewJ's distinctive front air dam :P
  • a side shot of Andrew's car (the one with the cat!)
  • Phil Knox' (aerohead) Toyota T-100 - rightfully identified as a pioneering modder
  • Brett's (bondo) beautifully made aero bed cap on his Ford F-150 pickup
  • bestmapman's Photoshop exercise showing his ideal Prius
  • a trio of older vehicles, examples of streamlined "styling", if not actually efficient shapes
  • a Hummer H2, as an example of what NOT to do, aerodynamically
  • and to top it off, a picture of the stunning Aptera 3-wheeler, destined to become a future icon of aerodynamic achievement
