That doesn't surprise me at all. I'd say maybe 1% of car owners have thought about the aerodynamics of their car.

Heresy! Get the tar, I'll bring the feathers!

I probably spend more time thinking about how aerodynamics is not a consideration if traveling about on the moon, and a very minor one on Mars.
