Visual quiz

Post a rough drawing or side profile pic of a car that is your best estimate of the shape of a car having these upper surface pressures:



Note 1: Start of graph is front of car (ie left) and finish of graph is rear of car (ie right).

Note 2: Centreline measured pressures

This quiz is a bit harder!

Right, which is why I added JK.

Was the first thing I thought of when imagining a car with a hood line that dips down before hitting the windshield.

Just couldn't "see" what was there, and I was in a hurry before my guess might be tainted by other peoples guesses.

I don't know; I'm trying to think of cars with long hoods and a sharp windshield-to-roof transition. It's the pressures at the front that have me stumped.
