    Dodge Volt

    Its an idea I had during the Merger talks, but I finally got around to doing it on Gimp: a Dodge Volt.

    The headlights and grille are from the Dodge Journey, and the rest is from the Volt. A classic GM rebadge!
    Please Help me with a good name too!

    The passenger side headlight seems out of place, but other than that nice work. I think if you made the headlights smaller it would have worked better.

    It looks like the Volt's lower grill is a mirror image of the Journey's. Funny how that worked out. Did you alter the Dodge grill to look like that?

    Nice. How about "Charger" for the name? Hehe. It fits very well in my opinion.

    Nope! That is weird though.

    bumble , that was a good one!

    vette dude, you are improving very quickly. try using your 'control f' to isolate the headlights , shrink the edges a little, re-angle the edges to fit the fender, and you've got it. you might have to patch in a little of the volt fender to replace the blank area you are altering, just reopen a version of the original image and cut paste that little section ( 'control f' again)

    Re: Dodge Volt

    The Dodge "edge" look is/was horrible & part of the reason Dodge has had trouble selling their cars. It was an idea that wasn't executed properly. Ford's "edge" design was alot better looking.

    As to the chop job, it looks ok. But is still ugly.

    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!!

    Thank you, and Thanks for the tips, I will take note of that and try to do even better on what possibly be my next chop: an AURA wagon! That is a maybe though (that would be my first major chop. I have not made a car into a wagon or anything big like that yet!)

    One thing, take the R/T badge off. I don't think that its possible to a R/T Volt if you want to get good mileage.
