That second, it was an 'unaerodynamic' plane!

The confluence of dimensional architecture, lack of downforce and bad luck, the 1999 Le Mans Mercedes CLR-GT1 flew! The closed coupe bodywork (lift), flat bottom, narrower wheelbase, softer rear springs and long rear diffuser overhang, add to that a slight uphill crest on the track and swirling vortices of a racecar in front - aimed the pitch-sensitive car ever slightly upward enough for the large front overhang to suddenly lift the nose up. The rear wing firmly planted the rearwheels that is now the perfect pivot that exposed the full flat body work to completely and dramatically lift it in the air.

And that with passive downforce. Imagine what happens with a 'sucker'!

If it went more that 120ft, then it exceeded the Wright Bros. first flight.

Let's bump this thread!

There's a third pic if you go to the link. You may mock it, but I think that's the best double-bubble canopy I've seen. Prolly some aircraft cockpit canopies.

Harley Earl would've loved it. Except it needs more chrome.

OK, this '58 CJ-5 caught my attention not for being unaerodynamic, but for being in such a mint condition. And it looks awesome on blue with those white rims.


Not sure about the aerodynamic impact of this Brazilian facelift of the Willys All-Steel Station Wagon over the earlier design.

This one is unremarkaby unaerodynamic, but the interior is interesting:
Just A Car Guy: 1913 Pipe... I've never heard of that before, but not a surprise when I learned that it was a company in Brussels, destroyed in WW1


Baroque woodwork and a jump seat.

Jump-seats are interesting, even though most are not so comfortable at all.

Well, it was aerodynamic until it wasn't:
