    We 'senior silly old farts (SSOF)' in Australia need a scale of reference for your drawing please.

    My initial reaction to your drawing is the wheels in relation to the car are about 26" in diameter - am I being too critical??

    I like your "lines" - it looks a lovely flowing car but the wheel diameter appears too great

    please enlighten me?

    Appart from the wheels which is just a thing designers do i suppose , i think there is too much angular stuff going on up front

    either the grill needs to be narrower or more squared off in line withe the outer edge of the headlights

    And screw the torana make this a commodore size

    I think it's damn near perfect! Angular is awesome.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

    No No!! If he he knocks the diameter out of the wheels, I reckon he has drawn/captured a Holden that has 'Holden' lines that we Aussies can accept.

    I saw the Opel Insignia in Ireland and I reckon that was one schmick car line.

    I think it looks much better. I also like the revised character line along the side.

    Yes, much improved with only minor tweaks.
