    Buick Century

    Upon Further thought, Buick has decided to drop the Lacrosse nameplate in favor of the Century. Along with the new name comes a new look much more befitting to a new, more luxurious Buick. Seriously though, I hate the Lacrosse name, I think that Century was a fine name, and to be honest, it goes along with Enclave a whole lot better!

    If it is, I hadn't heard of it! I agree with you though, I still prefer the Century name.

    I just think that Regal seems like it is trying too hard... Pretentious almost. Plus the Century nameplate is much older than Regal, why not bank on heritage?

    I believe you might have incidentally nailed the front end.

    I never liked the idea of a four door Regal... Anyhow, not the best drawing ever on GMI... but it's one of my favorite "concepts". Copy it, produce it, and it would be a hit for GM.

    Umm, thanks... I know that I am not the best artist on GMI, but I sure hope that everybody doesn't expect engineering quality drawings from these competitions... I don't think that this was so bad seeing as it is 100% freehand...

    I didn't mean that in a negative way, but now I see it sure could be taken that way. What I was trying to say is there are one or two really world class artists on here that haven't done anything as nice and "production-ready" IMO. I looked at your drawing, immediately liked it, and commented. Afterwards I went back and admired all the detail. Honestly, it's great. But more importantly it could and maybe even SHOULD be produced AS IS. Believe me, that's the ultimate compliment I'm capable of giving and I meant it to sound that way--I just worded it all wrong.

    Agree that Lacrosse is a terrible name. Its the kind of name for a car someone who plays gold would own. Century sounds much better.

    Looks really good, the front end is excellent. Though two things I don't like are the position of the door handles and the weird curve that happens on the hood just above the front wheel.

    But great work!

    I love it. The only detail I'm not digging is the line down the hood that connects to the emblem. Other than that, great job and nice drawing.
