    Nice. But the Impala shouldn't be so edgy in the front. I like the retro touches, but are those Camaro gills behind the door?

    I like it, But needs a bit more thought in the front end.

    Actually the front end was the idea that got me started, then i took a few lines from the 1965 model for the side and the spoiler was inspired by the 1961 model. I wasn't thinking about the Camaro while i was drawing it, so if any part looks similar it wasn't a part of the idea. The car is edgy because of the front end and the rest of the car had to match the design. I'm glad you like it

    I like that very edgy look, complete with "fangs" and the new Chevy grille design language...but is it a Chevy? It approaches the CTS in its ballsiness. I will enjoy seeing where you go with this.
