The Time Tunnel - An Historical Survey of Automotive Aerodynamics 700035

A complete survey covering the almost 50 years of automotive aerodynamic research that began in the early 1920's details the development and use of wind tunnel facilities for cars in Germany, Great Britain, Italy, and the United States.
