Well, Sir, on this browser, at this time, viewing the source—the HREF displays a picture of the Buick in question. The SRC (screen resource) displays as a '?' in a blue box.

Code:
<img src="http://images.fieroforum.com/pffimages2/bk1983questor01.jpg" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<a href="http://www.picturethistc.com/p910680434" target="_blank">http://www.picturethistc.com/p910680434</a><br />
<img src="http://www.picturethistc.com/p910680434/e27039302" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /><br />
<img src="http://www.picturethistc.com/p910680434/h3103ce3a#h3103ce3a" border="0" alt="" onload="NcodeImageResizer.createOn(this);" /></div>
In any case, I'm only seeing items 2 through 4 of the four, but I can paste into a new tab and get the expected result there.

Anyone else?

I do remember I had to double-check their calculations for which cams to swap to when it wouldn't start with the cams they had due to the high altitude - good times . Can't find any photos of it as we were running it (it was in white at that point, and may possibly have had a rear wheel fairing), but this *may* be the same car earlier in its life (or at the very least the same design used):



Can't speak for the Cd (not that it would have been *too* bad, though I suspect the 'full size' bike wheels were a mistake - lots of skin drag there), but the A was pretty darn small hardest part putting together a team for the competition was finding a driver who'd fit, and that was at high school...

That's a very high level of finish for a high school project.

TBH I'm not certain it was, originally... it wasn't uncommon for Universities and private teams to help fund their new designs by selling used vehicles to high school teams, who'd then make their own tweaks and mods on a smaller scale. Mind you, I know my school did build at least a couple of cars with similar build quality (and on more complex shapes). Could be either.

Not just any '48 Sedanette; that's Billy Gibbon's Cadzilla. As in I8TOKYO.

He followed that up with the Kopperhead 3-window coupe



And he currently is showing a new '34 Ford coupe.
