    Looks good! I really hate that swoopy-spear over the rear-doors and quarters on the 2017, I see you fixed that.

    Nice sketch, looks to me like something that will age better than the actual design in production.

    I like the LaCrosse, but to my eye it looks better in pictures, which is unfortunate. I hate the stupid name. But the things that will stop me from buying one are the ridiculous price, restricted AWD availability, and crapshoot whether the 3.6 timing chain is still a ticking time bomb.

    But it looks like there will be plenty of cheap used ones in a couple years.

    I like it, especially what you did with the grille and headlights.

    I like the redone sweep spear and the better looking front end.

    Yea that's pretty impressive actually. A few changes to the front and it magically makes the car look much younger.

    Burns, you've got talent. I'd love to see your take on what an MCE Camaro would look like!

    I think the Camaro design is doomed by its platform, the hood is too high, it will always look pudgy.

    That's not true. Look at the ATS Coupe. It's insane how different that car is when it comes to what it feels like on the inside.

    The LaCrosse wasn't impressive to me in person when I first saw them hit dealer lots. To me it really depends on the color of the car and that Pepperdust color of that car Ed posted certainly doesn't help. The car looks best in white or black IMO.

    I would say the ATS coupe looks a bit pudgy as well.

    Looks great! I love those "deep dish" rims, like BMW uses. Why does GM never use rims like that?

    Name a coupe that isn't anymore. Unless they've got that ugly BMW bubble top most coupes end up looking odd in the side view.
