Random UnAerodynamic Cars and Trucks Thread
We spend a lot of the time in the forum exploring what it is to be "aerodynamic".

At times it might be helpful to explore and examine the "un-aerodynamic" to remind ourselves what we best avoid in order to be successful in our ecomodding endeavors.

A few recent examples which have amused and bemused me.

This isn't the actual one I saw, but the last place I worked in Indiana painted one of these beasts black for swat

I'll repost the last one I put in the other thread, because although it's better than a stock Unimog, overall it's a basket case.

What's that dust cloud on the horizon? Mad Max cars?

There's a Beetle in there somewhere.

That first vehicle, it also made the Pelican Parts forum recently. I would have posted it, but like the plan view too much. I'm a sucker for rounded front edges I guess.

Regarding UnAerodynamic v's NonAerodynamic terms, the moderators are free to correct my English at any time, I will take no offense.:)

Wow, I actually do really like the Stude, but i am a sucker for a Studebaker of any kind.

kach22i -- That's because I follow along behind you in the Pelican Parts thread. I'd seen the two you posted here, there.

iamnotahippee -- my first car

The 2nd one is called Stupidbaker (money and a sense of humor). I know, I know, way off-topic for the thread. Sosume.

That Studebaker truck looks like a toy.

Last Sunday was the Orphan Car Show in Ypsilanti, Michigan, lots of old Studebaker's there, including a couple of pick-up trucks.

RE: 1963 Studebaker Westinghouse Pickup Truck Concept

"Cab Over Engine" designs fascinate me as much as engine under seat, rear-engine, and mid-engine designs.

I even like that late 1980's engine behind driver's seat Toyota mini van.
