    Pretty good...you should put some more body color in the front intake (it's too black). If you want it too look more sporty, put the side intakes, if you want it to look more lux don't put them. Also the side of the car (the door) look like it was from a corvette...maybe a bad thing.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    the intake you mean? i actually used my convertible chop (readers talent) as teh starting pic, and i liked the way it looked so i kept it. or are you talking about the way i 'erased' the huge 'widebody' in teh rear?

    you mentioned resemblance to the corvette on the side, do you see vette in the sidescoop or the flat side panel (i covered up the bulge that goes around the wheel well somewhat).

    I think it needs more work. Too much Camaro in it. Change the color at least, to make us thing something else. It needs a little originality to it. Looks like the XLR face untouched. Do something to make it unique and your own.

    I think it looks pretty neat. Although, as others have said, relatively derivative of the Camaro and XLR. I liked the back greenhouse, which reminded me of the 1987 Monte Carlo SS Aerocoupe/Grand Prix 2+2. Oh, and of course, the 1978 Caprice Classic Coupe. The crease in the glass works well with Art & Science.

    Like the V Series Grille. Some of the lines are a little wobbly.

    looks good, but the top half of the front end appears to curve around; whereas, the bottom half does not

    just my thoughts.
