    Firebird Concept

    Hey guys. Thought I'd see what you think about this. The model is not final, and I'm still messing with render settings. *Edited to reflect changes*

    Interesting variation using the pre-1975 look in the front end. I'd be happy to see Pontiac go back to more interesting applied hood lines that come to a point and create a split for the grille while ditching the tired old Grand Am initiated twin-kidney grille shapes for something edgier and more Pontiac traditional.

    Thanks for the comments, glad you all like it so far... Took me a while to figure out what design elements to go with!

    AWESOME!! I love the design and execution. My only gripe would be the headlights..they seem a little boring.

    Very nice! Two thumbs way up! If GM could put something like this on the Zeta platform than I could die happy. Do I detect a bit of corvette in there?
