Car Styling Magazine issue 142 1/2
 
Hello -

My wife got me this for XMas, first published in July 2001 :

It uses a mixture of cartoony images mixed with real data from real cars :

Here's an example that shows the benefit of wheel covers :

And here's one that shows the benefit of (partial?!?) wheel skirts (*with* wheel covers?!?!?) :

Yeah, normally I only buy them for presents for my nephew because he wants to design cars (I carefully stare at them until wrapping them).

My wife got it here :

Automotive Aerodynamics/Special Volume 142 & 1/2

I am going to get another copy for my nephew's birthday. He loves the monster performance cars and the JDMs, so CRXs and aerodynamics are where we meet on most car stuff. I keep asking him to find the name of the guy that designed the "Edge" inspired last-gen Mercury Cougar. He just rolls his eyes and shakes his head.

We demand more! Also, it's bilingual? That's interesting.

Yes, every word in Car Styling is translated into sets of Japanese-English paragraphs. In the pictures I have attached, I cropped out the Japanese paragraph to save space.

Do you have (access to) a flatbed scanner?

Yes, but I don't want to crack the binding. Sorry. I know you can scan without cracking the binding, but it's still hard to scan the inside pictures. Maybe if someone else ruins it, or it gets dog-eared, I'll do it. We'll see.

Bring it over to my house. 10 minutes after you put it in my hands, I guarentee the binding will be broken and pages will be falling out. Then take it home, scan it for everybody, keep a personal file, and everybody will be happy. :thumbup: :D :D :D :eek:
