I've posted some of them and provided a link to Big Mike's forum, is that where you got them as well?

Another similar:
Windtunnel photos of various cars - Miata Turbo Forum - Turbo Kitten is watching you test compression.

And another:
Downforce and Aero of various cars (cool pictures))

..............and yet another......five more after this, in foreign languages.

Are you talking about the large truck image?

That one is obviously right off the bat faked, and does not alarm me.

However I find it disturbing when such things are done too well and as an attempt to fraud the viewer.

One of the pick-up truck side views at the beginning of this thread is that way.

A beautiful and best visualization of the Corvette's cooling flow; front grill entry and ducted to hood outlet to improve total drag and reduce front lift.

The Vette gif should come with a disclaimer that there are no gold chains and coke involved, it's only a smoke breathing dragon.

I was not sure where to post this, but because it shows the resultant power or force of aerodynamics it's going in here.

Looking for ideas and/or pictures of drilled out parts - Page 16 - Pelican Parts Technical BBS

I have somewhere photos of a 911 on the race track with it's aftermarket fiberglass hood being sucked upward. Quite interesting what happens at speed.
