    Cadillac Fleetwood - FXR

    Here's a Cadillac concept that encorporates a broad spectrum age group with a trademark name, exemplary luxury, and V12 gas guzzler (yeah!)

    Sorry, but it looks like a bland version of the Chrysler 300.

    Now come on...(smile) how could a Cadillac possibly be bland. This is a BIG car. I mean Bently size. The Chrysler 300 would fit inside...no problem. People who did not know better use to say that Mercedes were the ugliest, boxy, plain looking car they've ever seen. The idea with Cadillac is that to truly be a Cadillac, they need a flagship that sets them completely out of the ballpark from Chrysler, Dodge, Lincoln. I really don't feel there is a flagship...or a model...that could not be in the same placement as a slew of competitors that one might not suspect. The 300 is not a bad car. I just think there was not much thought put into the details. My thoughts are not to create necessarily an olde-man's car....but a design that is enriched by many of the ques from eras gone by that one might never expect to see again.

    Thanks for the critique.

    I like the back view, tail lights look cool too.
    side view does need more detail or something.

    think of someone that you consider to be of average intelligence...
    half the worlds population is stupider than that person.

    You do know that a full-sized Bentley sedan is only 15 inches longer than a Chrysler 300...and 3 inches SHORTER than a Town Car, right? A Bentley is not huge.

    And given those measurement and the proportions of your artwork, where would you fit a V12? The windshield touches the front wheels and with the height and depth of the hood, how big is this engine?

    Just constructive criticism.

    Well, if you've ridden in a Bentley or a Rolls, and you've ridden in a Chrysler 300, you'll have a better idea about the dimensions and volume of space in comparison. We're not just talking about length or inches (neither longer or shorter).

    And, you have to remember....however big the 300 may be....my design is a concept...so I can make it bigger than anything that's out there <grin>

    Purely in fun...let's not take this all so seriously.

    Best to you and thanks for critiquing work.

    msabatini....how about a '67 or 68 Olds Toronado or Buick Riviera retro!!!?
    Those were some awesome cars in their day, and the Toronado was Vince's favorite!!!

    I'm glas you appreciate the classic qualities. I AM working to refine and reduce the profile somewhat. I'll update as soon as I have it done.

    Best to all!
