Less aerodynamic dog. But natural tuft testing all over.
All still well with your other dog I hope?

I like these California + India designs, but the sharp leading hood edge to get a 1960's look, plus steep sloping roof and or junk on roof shows a disregard for aerodynamics in favor of "life-style" imagery.

More about the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) partner.

They key to EV range is aerodynamics, and I think Alpha missed that memo, deciding it more important to feature KC off road lights on their Wolf pickup truck.

In some pictures it's quite easy to figure out which side the wind is blowing, just looking at Ozzy's fur.

Ozzy is not mine actually, but Vanessa is better than she was in the day I took that picture of Ozzy.

Quite a common mod in Iceland, yet it used to be done more often to body-on-frame rigs, and often with solid axle swaps in vehicles fitted with independent front suspension.

IIRC there were some loopholes to enable teens to drive such cars converted into trucks in Scandinavian countries.
