    I wouldn't call it lame at all. I assume it's a roadster? I really like that teardrop shape I bet it helps preserve laminar airflow.
    Oh yeah welcome [back?] to GMI, especially another budding [experienced?] designer.

    I've been thinking lately that Buick needed to do something similar to a Jag XK and thats a pretty sexy version of what I had in mind......good job!!!

    I like how the panels near the rear fender meet and created an almost faceted look. Well done. The only thing that looks off is the passenger side front corner, the hood looks a little bulbous.

    Re: Buick Express

    Nice concept. It looks like it would be a natural variation of the Volt drivetrain to me. Taking away extra weight of the rear passenger area to maximize the performance aspect of it.

    That looks great! You even tried to mirror the cobble-stones in the paint.

    But the name won't work.

    I'm not sold on the nose or the hood just yet, but I love everything else about it. I wish I could find the right words... the shapes... the curves... it's really stunning. Well done.
