    I don't. Cowcatchger/snow plow front end just isn't doing it for me. And the carlooks too long and too low. I also like a formal trunk.

    Bugatti-esque. Looks sharp.. as something other than a GN. Drop a Caddy grill on there and prop the headlights skyward and you've got ULC.

    "Too long and too low"!?!?!? A car can never be too long or too low. Rex, push the boundries and rip through the envelope! Now I can understand, and respect, that you don't like such and such but explore different shapes and new directions. Be aggressive in your approach to design don't worry about what something used to look like.
    Just my rant...I'm off the soapbox someone else can use it now.

    i can totally see the Caddy 16 in there. the front is a little too wedged to fit the rest of the body, but kick-ass either way.

    boy, there really isnt much sheet metal above that front wheel, is there?

    also, it looks like the hidden rear wheel is a tad bit too far forward.

    if i cover up the front end, i like the rest ofd the car. but the front is a little too flat and unexpressive. you do seem to like hatchbacks, or decklidlessness. one of the two.

    Grille looks more Pontiac Vibe (last-gen) than Buick. Otherwise, it's sharp.

    Nice...I don't think it would make a good Grand National, but it's awesome.
    Imagine a stretched limo version of that?
