Hello from Florida

Hello everyone,
I'm looking forward to making some new friends here. I found this site while goofing off Googling automotive aerodynamics websites with my son. I'm a transplanted New Yorker currently living in Florida. I used to do a lot of drag racing and some "open track" events on race courses with my Mustangs. I enjoy the automotive hobby and this website will just expand my interest. Currently I have a 1996 Bonneville SE with a 3.8L V6 that I intend on doing some of the aero mods I have discovered from this website. For a full sized car of this vintage it returns some good EPA mileage numbers . I will post those in the correct forums when I take some measurements to go with the pictures I took. I do look atthe entire site and have learned some interesting theory and some facts that I have already put into practice.

Note: I had to use the 1997 (same engine & trans) info due to the EPA only listing the Supercharged engine in their 1996 chart. 1995 used a different naturally aspirated engine. I am averaging around 24-25mpg combined using the how many miles I travelved vs how many gallons I fill up with. I know its the most acurate number but until I can get a scan gauge it will have to do.

EPA website info.
