Here is a video from Australia and all it shows is car after car leaving a car meet.

It is very interesting to see the subtle variations and differences between the cars as well as to notice the differences between what we think of as more the norm over here.

I found the clamshells (which extended back to the rear fenders) and the exhaust covers of particular interest, but it's a video you'll watch a number of times and every time take away something different.

Also look at some of the things they've done to help with buffeting.

Edit: I see once again the youtube tool doesn't work

It works, but the forum software isn't particularly smart; it only recognizes youtube urls in the format of http ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxxx. If there's an "https" or any extraneous stuff after "watch?" then it won't embed the video.

What I noticed most was the lack of rear braces on many of the roll bars.....

The yellow Seven with the clamshells that extended back to the rear fender, looks like a S-4 Seven fenders adapted to an S-3 type car. The extended fenders, actually look pretty good. Dave W

Several cars had what looked like one-piece fiberglass tail sections, one type was a flat deck, the other had faired headrests. One curved windshield, one Duvall split windshield. The split windshield looked very nice. Also one car with a *very* short cockpit opening. Lots of tonneau covers and spare tires.
