That Civic was mentioned on here a while back; evidently it was recently sold. I wanted details on the drivetrain but the guy never replied. :/

I'm thinking — get an early Barracuda backlight and a Superbeetle windshield and just fill in between with whatever car fits.

I find the rear of this car very interesting aerodynamically. It is clear that the designer placed a very high value on getting the underside air re energized smoothly with that 3-4 degree broad diffuser. The top profile view of that rear area of the car also shows a lot of though.

He apparently compromised on the rear plan profile, in favor of doing a smooth gradual taper in plan. Not something we usually think about, but it looks clean, at least visually.

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I love those gravity cars.
