Un-Aerodynamic can be cool as all heck.

Don't think it's been posted before.

Similar but not the same as the trailer in my albums.



One washtub would be less expensive than 2 Ford fenders. I like the bike strapped into the spare tire well on the running board.

I used to think these cars looked slippery.

Here it is in the wind tunnel.

It looks about what I would expect.

The only thing I wondered about is the Air Grabber™ consuming the smoke trail. It didn't sound like the engine was running.

There are two reverse scoops on the front fenders. There are faint hints of smoke exiting there while the trail is full on the central scoop.

It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.
