    Firechicken

    I did this chop awhile ago for a contest, it's of a G6, I revisited it today and changed a few things.

    Here's the original chop

    Beautiful. Awesome look of agressive-ness. Passenger taillight doesn't totally match the angle of the driver side one, but Its still a pretty sweet car. Like the color too.

    Nice Job. Not sold on the name, spoiler or taillights, however.

    Pretty nice chop! What gen trans am are you trying to capture? The viens remind me of the early 70's firebird as do the taillights.

    That is a pretty sweet little chop you have going there. As well as being quite aggressive and sporty, it has a feeling of a high-dollar vehicle. Pretty cool.

    Re: Firechicken

    looks good but i wouldn't slap a Trans Am sticker on it....

    looks perfect for a Crossfire killer!

    not crazy about the G6's original rear end so you could only do so much but it does look much improved

    Re: Firechicken

    Firechicken was not meant to be the real name, it was what some people call the Firebird, because the big flaming bird on the hood of the 70's Firebirds looked like a chicken to some people. Maybe it's just around here that we call them Firechickens. I didn't really try to style it after one generation, the tail lights are 60's inspired, spoiler is obviously 4th gen and the side scoops are 70's and 80's inspired. Thanks for all the comments.
    (the spell check here is really funny, it trys to change Camaro to Camry but does nothing about Firechicken)

    Re: Firechicken

    It looks great besides one nitpick: the rear is too short and G6-like for a Trans Am. I'd say stretch it out some...since it's a RWD car, it will need the extra length for the drivetrain. Also, lose the spoiler or tone it down...it detracts from the rest of the design.

    Re: Firechicken

    Wow...I thought everyone called them (or at least knew that they were called) Firechickens...guess not. Lol, I always hated that name anyways. It'd be cooler if they were nicknamed Phoenixes instead... "Phoenix" is a lot less whimsical than "Firechicken"...
