    it does look decent pretty decent. but it's not overly inspiring i guess you could say. but it is awfully hard to improve on the solstice. it's a good photoshop...but hopefully if GM would do such a thing they'd change up all the sheetmetal a little more rather than just put a different grill and wheels on it, a buick roadster is still a very good idea though in my book.

    Buick does need a roadster but the Solstice should not be the basis of such a car. A Buick is larger, more features, no stick shift.
    Your concept is actually very nice, however the wheels you chose are not meant for a two seat convertible.

    I actually thought the wheels were on a production Buick

    Personally, I'd geek for a Solstice-based Buick 2-seater, as a jaunty, chromy British-style sportster in the tradition of the AC Ace or MGA with a touch of Z3. I never was big on the original Bengal's grille, but something similar to the Terraza's, but a little toothier, might work really well. Instead of of the Solstice's headlights, maybe use something similar to the new Nomad concept's. And portholes, this one's gotta have portholes.

    Other than the awkward A-pillar, this version has a very appropriate Jaguar XK120 look to it. Not bad at all.
