Running boards are back!

I wonder what happens when the air coming out of the lot across the top is moving faster than the air over the car.

............. Mitchell presided over the styling during what turned out to be GMs greatest decade, the 1960s. He retired in 1977. The 1977 Pontiac Phantom concept car was his last project. About it, he proclaimed: "This is the kind of car I'd like to drive".

It's the area behind the front wheels, no attachment.

I figure the low frontal area and roof line kind of make up for it otherwise.
I'll go with non-aerodynamic,if we're considering drag coefficient.

If you let your focus drift a bit,your brain starts to see Porsche 924!
I've never seen a Cd published for the MX-3.

Well, not in the same size class, but similar front wheel venting below.

Is this also a high-drag car?

Cd 0.25,so it just qualifies as 'low drag'.
According to Hucho,we could approach Cd 0.08 with the Scooter with a cleaner and longer body,along with better wheel integration.

Back when that car first came out my co-worker's cousin had one of those.

I don't know if it was the car or his good looks and confidence, but he got laid a lot by some beautiful women.

Not in the car though, way too small for that.
