Here's a YouTube video that discusses a paper about aerodynamic drag on
fastbacks, notchbacks, and squarebacks. The body shapes are more
modern than on our cars, but it's still interesting that they used our names.
Here's the link to the video:


And here's the link to the complete paper. I haven't waded thru this yet, but I
intend to.

This reminded me of the little aerodynamics page a created years ago for our cars.  It can be found here…


I will have to watch the youtube video tomorrow and take a closer look at the paper to see if it is consistent with what I found and hypothesized.
