Plausible!
The neck and head could provide a boat-tailing function, minimizing the wake.
If there's ever a geek-version redux of Mel Brooks' 'Blazing Saddles', that would make for an interesting sketch!

When I'm on an offroad trail in my 0.55 Cd Jeep Wrangler making 8 mpg at 6 mph with all four wheels slinging mud, I sure don't wish I were in my 0.26 Cd Mazda3 sedan that shows me 50mpg at 60mph on the pavement.

Sometimes, square-ugly turtles win over sleek-beauty hares by a country mile.

Horses for courses, as the Brits are fond of saying.

A low Cd is hard to justify in the mud.

A high CG isn't. :-)
