additional cross-sections

Here are a few additional rear-view cross-sections for early research vehicles which happen to 'fit' Morelli's criteria for body cross-sections favorable to the fluid tail,if truncated.
This is the Lange Car,which influenced Ferdinand Porsche's first sports cars,starting,1939
