    Chev Dakar

    Dakar spec SUV ready for numbers and lights.



    It's unfinished so there are plenty of messy bits...

    Agreed, that would make an awesome Blazer.

    Sweet. Looks like it would be the perfect blazer. Kinda looks like the answer to the Ford Explorer America concept!

    ^^ Ah, good spotting, I forgot to change that when I flipped it around. I'm not all that proud of this one, it's not very imaginative and it's quite sloppy, the People-Mover worked out more like I had in mind.

    Not a big fan of the twin nostril hood, and I'm also wondering what the grille and bumper area would look like on a finished drawing. Other than that, the short overhangs and overall shape look very good. Excellent work!

    Yeh a road version wouldn't get them, they are just a bit of Dakar nostalgia and a touch of Lamborghini LM002, maybe a special edition would though.
