    Awesome for the nameplate.

    Can it be ready in time to pace the NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway!

    That is sweet. I love the Silverado SS fascia on it . Suits it just right. Looks like the 87 Monte Carlo. Is that what you based the chop on?

    eeewwwwwwww....there goes the sleek styling right out the window, that design would look better as an El Camino. Sorry but it just doesn't look right up front.

    guess it's a personal thing, but i LOVE that front end! mean and aggressive... it'd scare other cars off the road. as for sleek... a car with that much 'tude doesn't need to be sleek. it'd take this over a GTO!

    be careful saying ALL, i love the look of the new magnum/300. if chevy doesn't come thru with a RWD fullsize sedan by the time im ready for a trade, the 300 is something i'll be looking at.

    as for this monte carlo Ss, its ok.. the more i look at it, the more it grows on me. but it shouldn't look exactly like the truck front end.

    yeah i think we've seen it before. as for the design itself...an exact copy of the truck front end won't work on this car. i think if you used the lights and girlle from the crossbar up that it would look pretty good...it would look more car like, but this just doesn't work all that well.

    WHen I said all I meant everyone who said that the magnum was ugly, I too quite like it's styling.

    I did a chop just like that, it's a magnum coupe...only this one has a chevy grille...I used exactly the same base picture actually...

    have you posted it in another topic? lets see it

    personally i think the magnum and 300C are different 'in your face' than this SS... the DCX pair are just big and brash for the hell of it... this SS looks much more purposeful and thought out, in my oh-so-humble opinion

    Chevy should not do a car that looks like a truck. The Silverado will look different by the time a new Monte Carlo comes out so why base a new car on an old truck design. It makes no sense even if you like the look it would be a big mistake.
