seifrob — Then there're pizza delivery drivers.

The trailer tail is missing it's bottom 1/3 to clear loading docks. It has no proper difusser.

The proposal for the Type II could be implemented as a box cavity with folding panels; flat top and bottom that fold first with curved side panels that fold over them.

I know its compromise between aero and utility, but I thought it is still worth looking at. It is factory made and DOT approved so it should bring much less attention from these please-men.
Anything but Vg's would be so huge structure it will not get unnoticed. Here you would be pulled over by first cop sooner than you say "safety hazard". But its not the U.S.

Pizza boys - I forgot :-) But, you know, there aren't many in my age anyway. I suppose they don't live long enough ;-)

The Corolla is an interesting conversion. It looks like the front and rear clips were expertly merged together. Too bad there is a small crowd standing in front of it.

This one seats five on two wheels:

It's pretty difficult to ruin a 3 series compact, but they done it alright.

I love the hoodboot Corolla. Way to go for a pusher trailer design

Only possible with either FWD or rear engine cars.
The Corolla would pale next to a hoodboot Porsche 911 or Ferrari Testarossa

My new favorite bobber truck



I think it's the cable shifter mounted upside down in the roof between the gull-wing doors...
