Pics of 1930's German streamlined cars.

The site is in German, but has a lot of good pics of 1930's German streamlined cars with aero ideas we could use on our current vehicles.

Great, thanks!

I really want to know what's up with these dorsal fins...





Nature uses them for roll stability... But I'm not quite certain that shape is beneficial in cross wind :/ Perhaps it divides the flow to keep any shedding vortices from mingling near the boundary layer? Just a guess.
