    Buick Tucán

    Here's a vision of how would like a Buick version of the Sky/Soltice brothers.


    Tell me what do you think.









    Sorry if it has some rough spots, the chop is old and haven't worked on it.

    Decent chop. I wonder what Welburn would say about it? BTW absolutely great name: Buick Tucan! Makes me dream of Fruit Loops.

    It's not a bad chop, and it looks good, but I'd say that the Buick version would need more changing. The "No more rebadges" crowd would cry foul..

    It's not bad, but I'd like to see less Saturn in it, and more Buick.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    I like it for the most part. The grille is very low, but it puts a new spin on a Buick front end. The headlights and fenders should change a bit to differentiate from the Sky, but it's not a bad ide (though I still prefer a larger Velite type Buick convertible).

    The headlights need to be more Buick-like.

    Sign me up NOW! That is just as long as it has a trunk big enough to put my briefcase after work.
