Hey I found a lot of cars that look to be self reported or something from an ecomodder forum. The data is pretty unwieldy in internet form so I finagled it into an excel 2007 workbook (xlsx) :) I added some calculations because the numbers reported seemed a little off for CdA and frontal area. The ecomodder link has the formulas that I used, and they are below as is the link. I hope you guys find this useful.

Frontal Area formula = Height * Width * .84
(Height and Width in feet)
Frontal Area formula = (Height/12) * (Width/12) * .84
(Height and Width in inches)
CdA formula = Cd * Frontal Area
