LOL! Superman #1 would be safe. Now an issue of Mechanix Illustrated where Tom McCahill tested, oh, say, the Austin Healey 100 or the '55 Chrysler 300...

It's a Japanese Magazine publication. I can't find an ISBN number. Like I said, it's available here :

Automotive Aerodynamics/Special Volume 142 & 1/2

Here is their e-mail :

Thanks for posting the images.
This magazine is just the sort of aero information that I enjoy - lots of pictures and less of the math that you usually have with aero manuals.
