A short movie about streamlining.
To hear the term “Torpedo Car” is worth watching the video. Sponsored by Chevrolet Motor Division. From Archive.org. Length: 06:47.

I remember when the new GM Wind Tunnel was first being utilized. When suggestions were made to Bill Mitchell about changes that could be made to the cars to improve aerodynamics, he responded, “Too bad aero had to go that way.” He made it clear that the cars were designed in the studios, not the wind tunnel.
