    Oh wow, you've gotten incredibly good man. I love the rear haunches on that design... adds some needed toughness to the goofy yet loveable Ka.

    I agree.... great sketch

    I could see it definitely as a KA or a micro Ford type vehicle!

    The ONLY thing I'd change is maybe experiment a litlte more with the c pillar and the bump up from the fender. I think that could be improved slightly.

    excellent job

    I like this one a lot. It gives off a baby Mondeo sort of vibe. Is it like a 3-door (hatch)?

    Nice proportions. Even with the wheels downsized to more practical dimensions, the general stance of the vehicle is very aggressive, in stark contrast to most cutesy-looking economy cars on the road these days. If America could adapt examples like these as the basis for its compact cars, instead of trying to emulate the Japanese and Europeans, I see some real potential.

    My thoughts exactly. This sketch is sweet!! It would take Ford a few months to get the name figured out though....
