    I feel like Ford will have issues with that name. Looks good though.

    Same. Would probably bore you, Burnsy, but I'd like to see your take on a cargo van to replace either the City Express or the full-size Express.

    Looks great!

    My only comment is this wouldn't make it to production. For example, though little more than circles, they represent large, wheel well filling low profile tires and the rims look sporty/deep dish like BMW uses. How will it look with smaller tires, bigger gaps in the wheel well and cheap rims?

    You make it sound like that "looking ugly" is a corporate mandate.

    The scissors and "sharp pencils" (no pun intended) are in GM's hands, if they can't stop themselves from bashing themselves in their face, who can?

    Not bad. Looks like a lifted Cruze Hatch.

    It looks pretty good even if it does resemble the Cruze Hatch.

    No, more like reality. Most artist concept sketches we see (for any make) are sleek looking with wheel well filling tires, but actual production reality is smaller tires with less glamorous rims or even hub caps. I think Mr. Burns does beautiful work and I want to see more! My comment is more of a general statement as we ohh and ahh and say GM will never build this. GM could build this exact car (or any other make), but with normal tires/rims it won't look quite as sexy.
