kach22i -- Lots of racoon tails.

I hope they have a carport or garage for days when the weather isn't that nice. Those furs won't clean themselves (anymore).

FYI, it's from a movie—MM:FR.

I think quoting the movie should off limits for the purposes of this thread. We haven't even seen any of the 'hedghog' cars yet. Talk about your interference drag.

That's why I like the taxidermal truck.

If a manufacturing co builds it , its right. Attitude. Can heart us but not as much as ; if thet don't build it , it dusent work attitude
Hear we see a manufacturing company influenced by some school kids.

The space occupied by the air foil is a turbulent separation zone. Fill in the spac with a solid allows the air to travel the same path with out separating onto the low pressure
Not all school buses are i town@15-40mph my bus ran 55mph for 20 miles of its 30mile rout. I lived on the way to bfe. The school districts that will benafit the most have a small fleet with high mileage routs at speed 3-5 miles betwine stops such as Silver Lake, or

Hear we see...
If I understand what your saying, it's about that plastic bubble the high school kids promoted. Your first example is a better one, the second one is double-ended and flattened instead of profiled.

I wasn't able to find the correct search terms, but I seem to recall a discussion that concluded that a half-round radius above the windshield (where the FURTHUR sign would go) would have the same effect, without the added frontal area.

The untapped potential of putting an aero-shell on this is practically killing me.

This might fit—it curves laterally on the top and lengthwise on the bottom. Side windows mimic a porpoise's eye.



Edit: Oops, not un-aero enough.

Thread bump.

That would make a great trailer tow vehicle; it would be like driving a tractor. For comparison, here's an altered wheelbase drag racer from 1962.
