    Don't forget to post some links so I don't put my foot in it. You would probably need one without the stripes as they stand out as the most photoshopped part of the image.

    Hi guys, I put my back out Saturday so I haven't done much more on these. Been lying on the couch watching TV.

    I'd do some chops of fake car bra's being taken off if I could sit at the comp longer.

    I'd use the plain Monaro only. Say the mate was a GM public relations guy and took this pic late in the day just before it was loaded back on the truck. That they'd closed off a suburban cul-de-sac to do some shots for future sales brochures.

    BTW you'll need to do it soon for it to be believed. I've been approached.

    Well done MonaroSS on becoming a celeb

    The photos morph very nicely in the article.


    CN CONFIDENTIAL: Pie in the sky

    A GTO that would appeal to Americans and Aussies, and why Volvo could appeal to BMW

    Whether it's from the www, the latest motor show or the back doors of a carmaker near you, Carsales Network Confidential features the good oil other sources either won't publish, don't care about or don't know. Heard an automotive rumour or new model tip? Then let us know at editor@carpoint.com.au


    >> Judge for yourself
    One of the stars of online forum GM Inside News has created design studies for a prospective Holden Monaro/Pontiac GTO. The artist, who goes by the moniker 'MonaroSS', has contributed some masterful works to the online debate concerning a Monaro/GTO replacement.

    The four impressions feature a standard Monaro, a HSV GTO, and red and black versions of a Pontiac GTO 'Judge'.

    All three images combine elements from the forthcoming Chevrolet Camaro (around the 'C' pillar and rear quarter panels) and some styling cues from the VE Commodore ('A' pillar and front quarter panels). In the case of the HSV and the Pontiac iterations, the split grille marks a return to earlier era styling, although the HSV in question was as recent as the VZ ClubSport.

    Just so you know MonaroSS Just saw the car show today and at the end of it they appear to have used some of your photoshop pics, while not the ones here, and didn't credit you, not sure if you know about it.

    Hi AusCalais and Odin,

    Just got home. Yes the editor sent me a link to the article early this morning. They had approached me for permission to do a story with my pics as an 'artists illustration'. I said yes but didn't actually know it was more about my pics. I did give them other pics but they didn't mention the Car Show, but then it is owned by the same company. I'll have to see it.

    2. I think the front end is a bit too harsh, I'd prefer a more restrained approach and more "flow".
    Yes I love it too but agree about the C pillar - I tried (using paintbrush, so crude and not post-worthy) pulling it in closer to the front and that brought the downturn of the side windows to within the door glass - just like a HKTG coupe - and I liked it!

    Best coupe attempt yet I have to admit though!

    Re: New VF Monaro & GTO V8 Coupe

    This is a nice chop.

    My suggestions:

    1. On the rear quarter panel - Instead of a sharp angle of the quarter window from the back of the door to the rear, maybe a curved line (almost like the rear of the dodge charger). Or if it looks to wierd....you see that body line that comes over the front fender flare? It needs to be straight down the length of the car, IMO. Might look cool with an angled door window appearance? It should appear to continue straight to the rear top corner of the decklid. It would bring the quarter window down some and straighten out the angles.

    2. That triangular front bumper fog light assembly (found on the HSV, I belive) - move it lower underneath the front bumper line.

    3. The back part of the corner lights - curve the back end so that if follows the contour line of the fender flare.
