    Hahaha! There's something about that I like. The nose would have to be a tad shorter for it to not look kinda goofy... but it's a neat idea!

    Didnt GM have something similar to that, maybe slightly smaller in '78 or '79 - I think it was used for the Olds Cutlass Salon and the Olds 442 as well as for Buick.

    How do you expect the V8 to fit then?

    *nods*

    Yeah, something like that. I remember seeing pics of one of those versions recently somewhere....


    Hmmm....it also reminds me of a larger version of the Citation, tho, I'm not exactly sure why.

    It looks goofy. And I love these cars. It looks disjointed. If they would have sloped the roof more it might have looked more natural. Though hatchbacks dont seem to sell well here. Gustmans still has a 2005 Malibu Maxx sitting in their showroom.
