The height of the car does not change but its length shrinks in Mr. ScepJc’s frame by gamma, it namely becomes 3/2.3 meters. As a result the aspect raJo changes from 3 to 1.3. 3. In Mr. ScepJc’s frame the width of the car is 1/2.3 meters=.43 meters. The car that had a three to one aspect raJo now has 6.9 aspect raJo. Looks as made out of rubber. The same for the raJo of height to width that was1:1 and now 2.3 4. The car looks squashed since it moves at 12m/hour past Mr.ScepJc and in his frame he sees the same height but a length2.3 longer. 5. Since they move with the same speed there is no transformaJon.
