Some nice Photoshop pics of aeromods from a Ford Taurus forum

Found these because they linked to us here at EcoModder...

I love the Photoshop exercises that people do of aero mods. Especially when the artist is pretty good at it!





If you want to check their thread containing these imgs:

They started out wondering why AndrewJ's Civic doesn't overheat, with its single small adjustable opening in the front.

Since the FN10 platform that Lincoln Mark VIII uses is similar to the MN12 that my car uses it would probably look similar except crappier

FN10 is pretty much just a stretched MN12. Im pretty sure suspension parts interchange and such.

And thats a nice clean bird you have.

I gave my 95 LSC with 80k to my father when he retired. Pretty well modded, ran 13.5 all day long and got 28mpg on the highway. He destroyed the trans and air suspension in one trip to Florida, something that the previous 12 years in NYC couldn't do.

He still earned it.
