    >>>>> Chevette

    here is one concept:
    (I am working on another project so once thats complete I do more for this contest)

    I have replaced the sucide door version with this 2dr:

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

    FBody, you never cease to amaze me w/your chopping skills!
    I usually like your chops & this one is no different.

    Looks like the basis for your Chevette was the Astra, but you changed it greatly, right?
    This Chevette of yours looks like it could go head to head w/the Mazda3.
    It looks roughly about the same size.

    Now I am just waiting to see what ya do for a Chevelle.
    Good job man!

    WOOHOOO!! My 500th post! Now I am Supercharged! Lookout world!

    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Nice looking car! Only the suicide doors are kind of obsolete since the front ones are so long.

    Great concept. Still a few years off in the GM world but that thing looks like it could hit the next autoshow if GM would buy into it

    wow, what a beauty. This chop is amazing, and the quality is wonderful! I too am curious as to what vehicle was used for the base.

    I believe the base was Kabura from Mazda .. the tail is the giveway.

    but it is a great chop...

    if the rear doors are suicide, the cutline might need adjusting, as i cannot see a suicide hinge workign with such shape.

    Also I would work with the nose a little more - I still get a lot of Kabura vibe from that area.

    Finally - I am not a big fan of slotted/vented hoods on anything else than supercars - so I would go with a simpler design there.

    But an awesome job.

    thanks you guys.

    I started with one of these:
    as you can see it is tall, has a short cab and long front, plus other stuff.

    IGOR: I took some of your advise. hey don't forget, mazda copied the chevy SS-concept front

    Ahh, the Mazda Kabura concept was the template. Cool!
    I like the Kabura too. I think Mazda should built it.
    The car mags have speculated that it could be the next/new MX-3.

    i love it, everyone else's seem too similar, and way too close to the size/looks of the camaro, but this is wicked different, and would fit right into chevy's lineup
