...I'd like to add/update information for our two vehicles (2011 Cruze LTZ and 2009 Pontiac Vibe), but can't do so in the wiki.

2011 Chevy Cruze LTZ: Cd = 0.31, A = 24.0 ft^2 (58.1" x 70.7"), 3,250 lbs.
2009 Pontiac Vibe:....Cd = 0.33, A = 22.4 ft^2 (61.0" x 69.5"), 2,900 lbs.

Since I can't edit the wiki page, I'll put the data here. I just bought an Opel GT that I plan to ecomod thoroughly.

Make Model Year CD Frontal Area CDA
Opel GT 1968-1973 0.398 18.5 sq ft 7.16

I don't have the height/width figures, the other information is from OpelGT.com - The Classic Opel Community, an excellent forum for Opel GT owners

one of the reasons why the GT has a fairly high drag coeficient is the how the lower body is set up... the wheels are almost fully exposed tot he airflow.

interesting the opel GT aero wich never saw production had some sort of airdam that might have been there to counter the aditional drag from the open roof.

perhaps an interesting idea for someone wanting to "aeromod" a gt without ruining the classic lines

I suspected the wheels were a major drag source. I love the lines of the GT, but maybe some kind of mini deflectors ahead of the rear wheels and an air dam up front would be good for reducing drag without too much negative visual impact...
