With convertible prices and chrome bumper cars increasing in price....

Basically, they sell a 68 -69 rear clip with 4” flares and hardtop convertible conversion for 2400. Actually a good price when you calculate the cost of buying a hardtop, convertible windows, flares, etc. looks like this leaves the coupe t-tops and windows.

Tried to upload a photo but was too big. Actually, pulling off the rear clip to build a cage would make this a great conversion.

Default Thought this might be a good place for this...

Advantage goes to reducing frontal area:

Note: the rider's Cd is also reduced from about 0.75 to less than 0.2, vehicle stays the same.

Pretty good demonstration of drag reduction.

Also shows why coast down testing allows you to evaluate aero drag changes.
