I think I remember this from old black-and-white photos::


Just A Car Guy: Here's an interesting little old car I haven't seen before, the Hoffman X-8... a rear engine prototype made off the grid!

But not this (just the name Fageol):

I remembered it from this thread: https://ecomodder.com/forum/516787-post2076.html

Love it! It looks "liquid" like the whole thing was squeezed out of a tube.

I was just looking at the specifications of the 2019 Toyota Avalon and noticed this in the exterior description:



"Aerodynamic front tangential venting," a fancy way to say "air curtains."

No doubt, but that thing looks like it needs a grille block. Unless it has 1000-1500hp.

This is nice. I like the green over white countershading:
