That Kenworth reminds of the streamliner steam locomotives from the 30's

Somewhat interesting is the Morgan Midsummer


www.caranddriver.com/photos/g60790183/morgan-midsummer-revealed-gallery/

The classic Morgan Plus 6 gets ecomodded: Partial grille block, front diverter, side skirts, long tail with box cavity truncation, windshields no bigger than you rear view mirrors, & etc.

Interesting wooden external duct/door pulls. Taller tires on lighter wheels.

Background story on the Morgan/Pinin Farina colalbaration:

Casey the Car Guy built a whole car to get Aerocivic level fuel mileage:
