    I voted yes, but now I think it's a "no". GM does not NEED this coupe. GM could make money out of such coupe, provided it had a brand capable of competing in this market. Hopefully Cadillac will move on up, a Buick coupe would be nice too (though it would probably rather serve as a "cehaper alternative"), and your own Toronado and Trofeos might be the aces up GM's sleeve.

    As concerns the chop, I admire your flawless technique, but this time it is not to my taste at all. I hate those vertical lights, and now you shaped them like i the R-Klasse, the whole hood is in an odd shape and the car looks disproportionate (the butt is presumably super long). Olds wheels worked great on Olds, but not on a Buick. And the color isn't that spectacular either.

    If Buick was to bring back the Riviera, it would have to be something like your previous lovely Gran Sport concept. And where is the dawn production G6?

    That looks really good! I can see that with the new Northstar or Ultra V8 with about 375hp on the top of the line CXS trim. Put it on Zeta and consider AWD as an option on CXS & CXL. Base engine for the CX will be the 3.5L with 225hp and the mid-level CXL can have the 3.6L with Direct Injection 295hp.

    CX - 3.5L VVT V6 225 hp RWD
    CXL- 3.6L VVT DI V6 295 hp RWD/AWD
    CXS- Northstar/Ultra HF V8 375hp RWD/AWD

    thanks for your honest thoughts on this car man,
    I guess its not everyones taste, but what I want to do is keep on working on it until it gets more like what I have in mind.
    I want to make a 4door version with hide-away head lights and another one which will look more 1950's...if I get the time.
    the G6... its finished but I don't really want to show it cos I feel it could be better, so i might start over with that concept

    Yes! I LOVE it, very, very nice. Your chopping skills are excellent. I'd like to see what a sedan would look like with the Enclave front end. Just an idea.

    I just noticed the side view mirrors; did you do the chrome on the lower portion of them? It is a really cool idea, and it looks great!
