    2008 Buick Regal & Cadillac Night Hawk *UPDATE 2*

    Wheels have been added!

    I've changed the coupe from the Monte Carlo to a Buick Regal coupe, and made some changes to it. I realize it doesn't look exactly like a Buick, but I think it works better as a Buick that a Monte... until I figure out exactly where this car would go... As far as the Night Hawk, it stays the Euro Caddy, but it's been changed up to include more A&S Caddy lines to it...

    There are two designs on this one, single paper. The coupe is the Monte, the sedan is the Night Hawk.

    A couple things to point out.

    First, to the Buick crowd... sorry if it isn't Buick-like in design. It was a design that wasn't originally a Monte, but more of an Infinity G35 coupe & class competitor. I think the car does look shape, though not ground breaking. It does have that "GT" style to it, almost a sleeper... almost. It may not stay as a Buick for long, though... still looking into names and brand for it...

    Now to the Night Hawk. This would be a Europe-only sedan, a smaller-than-CTS sedan. Why did I call it the Cadillac? I think the style says Cadillac more than anything else... This, too, was not meant to be a Cadillac, but rather just another one of my drawings...

    Hope you like the two designs!

    Hmm....I both.

    But, I'm not sure the coupe says "Monte Carlo" to me.... I'm guessing it is RWD and features the Monte Carlo emblem....right?

    Correct... and I had a feeling that it wouldn't say "Monte" to you or other die-hard Monte fans... working on changing some designs... got any cues you'd suggest I add to make it more Monte like?

    The curved fenders....for starters, anyway.

    I probably should find some time to scan in my drawings....sometime.

    Hmm... within a couple days I'll do it and post it... I don't really have any drawings of a car that'd work as a Monte... in fact, most of my drawings I do have nothing to do w/ RL cars... they aren't "heritage" designs or anything...

    Hmmm....well, for what it's worth, the coupe in this drawing would work as a Monte...with a few changes (namely the body side lines).....

    Lookin' forward to seeing your MC rendering....
