  • Grille block
  • airdam
  • aero mirrors

This isn't one car, it's a collection of rear spoilers. I know 'round these parts a flat Bonneville spoiler is more en vogue; but this shows 14 [or so] different ways to do the same thing.

Cool. Could you use a semisubmersible snowmobile carrier?

I'd like to see a Meyers Manx with 12" ATV wheels and a double-hoop roll bar with the grab handle/anti-intrusion bars.

One I'd never heard of before, the Bizzarrini 5300 Strada:

Apparently a Corvette drivetrain with an Italian body wrapped around it.

Something a little different: the Intermeccanica Murena

1968, only 11 made, not bad aero for the time period.

I'm not sure if this fits the template, but I'm hopeful.
