    Been toying with this on and off...

    fresh out of the photoshop



    NEW


    That's just me checking the flexibility of the basic design, the hatch was my focus.

    A little too edgy for Buick IMO. It really reminds me of an Impreza.

    Re: Buick

    Another great looking effort, as all your submitted work has been. I do agree with chaseabryant's previous comment about it possibly being inappropriate for Buick. Maybe if the front end styling was a little more Buick-esque, then it might work.

    Good job overall though. Keep up the good work.

    A little too "athletic" for Buick. But then again, I'm not sure what Buick stands for anymore.

    Re: Buick

    That front grille just annoys me now, I'll cook something up for you lot. I have another bun in the oven for this contest but I'm still working out how it can fit the theme, and trying to find the time to finish it.

    Cheers for the comments, they're always welcome!

    UPDATED! Hopefully a little more of a Buick taste to this one. It also got some new wheels.

    Re: Buick

    The design still needs a bit of work.
    The grill needs to be a bit bigger & maybe the headlights too.
    The sweepspear needs to look more fluid.
    The wheels are tilted inward & need to be straightened.
    The roof & side window need to be redone as well.

    Maybe MonaroSS or yourself can correct what needs to be fixed.

    Other than what I've noticed needing fixing, it looks good.


    !!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Re: Buick

    Cheers for the comments guys


    LeSabre it's not over yet, but the front camber was actually deliberate to give it more racey look, probably a bit too 'tuner' for Buick but I was just mucking around with it. The sweepspear was meant to be aggressive and the idea is to bring the the last part of it (near the back light) forward so the line is longer giving the appearance that the back quarter is just that bit longer. I think the big grille phase of car design has toned down alot as it's been somewhat overdone (*cough* 300 C) and I wanted a really clean minimalist front, but not boring.
    The windowline does need a tidy up, but it is meant to dip slightly at the start of the back door.

    Nevertheless I know what you're getting at and I'll get onto a bit of a tidy up.... but at the very least I'm convinced it's a step forward from the first draft.

    It's probably a little rough for MonaroSS to bother with, but hey, anyone is very welcome to chop and change it..... patent pending
