Interesting, it could have been a hearst as well...

It looks kind of like a European style hearse, the type with the exposed rear area. Pretty neat car, though. So basically it drove along side a car that was being tested, and a cable would hang between the two, data being transmitted to the above car? How odd. But I guess computers weren't what they are now.
