I searched Google Images for 'bubble-top coupe' expecting to find the 1964 1/2 Mustang and the gull-wing Mercedes 300SL, but it's all 1959-62 GM hardtops. The only Mustang is a notchback.

The phrase "bubble top car" produces a much more interesting array.

This brings back fond memories of my old '61 bubbletop Impala. Same colors, white and red. I wish I still had that car but time marches on.......Chumly

Googled for images of bluff bodies in close proximity to ground plane.

ScienceDirect.com - International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer - Heat transport from a bluff body near a moving wall at Re=100

Quote:
ig. 4. Instantaneous contours of (a) vorticity (ω) and (b) isotherms at Re = 100 for various gap ratios, G/D, for the flow past a square cylinder near a plane moving wall. The isotherms are presented at the same instant of time for which the vorticity contours are drawn.
