    I know, I know, but it was a fun chop to do regardless. Also, according to the contest rules there couldn't be any coupes or convertibles. Since the only thing that looks good with four doors is two cars, I had to do a wagon.

    Hahahaha, so it looks like a boxy white SUV with 31-inch tall tires and 15-inch wheels? OK, I guess I see the resemblance.

    Not necessarily, especially when I'm the one doing the photoshopping and the naming. Besides, that Audi you posted is what most people would call a hatchback, am I wrong?

    Any suggestions? I didn't want it to look too much like a CTS wagon.

    It's a good chop but I hate the concept and hope Cadillac doesn't even do it.

    Go easy on me. Lucky for you I have very little influence with GM's future vehicle plans.

    ^^ I don't know, can you fit a pair of shotguns or a set of golf clubs in the back?
