Saw JethroBodine on White Trash repairs.

Aerodynamic car- 1 point for being aerodynamic and 10 points for being ugly as ****!

They got a really good picture of it.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Hell, find some of the vinyl camouflaging car companies use for new model testing and cover the whole vehicle. Then see how people react!

It's actually a nice shape. Really makes the rest of the car look like a box, The Mk2 Jetta was advertised as pretty aero for the time.

How much does it weigh?
