    The Pontiac Aztek has been off the menu for a decade and a half and yet it's still being used as a prime example of awkward styling. As you can imagine, many styling masters have tried to alter its appearance, in a bid to also make those outside the community of Aztek lovers approve of the crossover's bold styling. Well, the rendering sitting before us might just make for a successful attempt.

    Looks somewhat close to what the the original designers intended.

    How the Pontiac Aztek became the Pontiac Aztek

    It looks pretty good done up like that, history might've been kinder to the Aztek had GM added wheel flares and nice rims as an option - I bet it wouldn't have cost GM much money.

    On the right car it still looks great! I always loved a black Trans Am with gold rims/trim and the screaming chicken.

    Wonder how the C8 Vette would look with one? I'm sure over the next few years someone will do it!

    There is nothing stopping GM from selling a TransAm under Buick or Chevrolet brands

    Grossly overdone pimpmobile. Should not have a Trans Am logo, it should have an Aztek logo.

    Another what if... I think it may well have helped the poor thing. I think it's certainly better than what they had going with it.

    At least the Screamin' Chicken is on a Pontiac....There has been a article floating around as of late with the Chicken on a Black an Gold BMW i8 and unlike this digibash the i8 is a real thing.
