If you could predict that, I suppose we wouldn't be having this conversation

I have a long history of not driving on days when I would crash, with just a few exceptions.

You picked one point out of nine to respond to. What did you think of, e. g., the front wheelwell openings? I hadn't noticed the top has no side openings.

If it was upside down with the top off, the doors as still very small, maybe best to trailer it everywhere.

Im undecided on the openings, I would need to see road spray or wind tunnel data. To me right now, without that data, looks super draggy with really turbulent flow into that rear wheel scoop kinda rendering it useless unless it is so turbulent that the entry air goes static. This is really an Aerohead question.

Really reminds me of a 70's Opel with skin cancer

Previous life experiences cause me to look differently at random normal items

I suppose that if the A-pillars haven't collapsed and you haven't been paralyzed with a neck injury and can't get through the side windows, you wait on first-responders to cut you out.

A guess is, that the manufacturer / customer will have expectations about 'the look', body proportions,track performance. Power-to-weight ratio, acceleration, braking, polar moment of inertia, center of gravity, cornering G-forces, lap times,speed down the straights, etc.. A pickup truck drag coefficient will have to suffice, as even the most expensive supercars don't stray much beyond the Cd of a RAM 1500 with grille shutters, air suspension, and tonneau cover. High speed stability remains an extreme impediment to low drag. Folly!

Is there a way to ignore the conversations and still get notifications when there is actual news here?

The moderator's A.I. interface, with Random Conversation-O-Meter ( RCOM ) broke down, and without it, it's impossible to prevent us from just vomiting up the first thing that comes to our 'so-big', Ren & Stimpy brains.

Another post with no actual news, but it made me sorry I responded at #3482.

Not aerodynamic [overall] and not news, but it's an early example of a non-collapsing TrailerTail.
