    GM+Nissan=Oldsmobile

    GM merges with Nissan and together they create a new line of Oldsmobiles.

    this is the first model, the Cutlass Supreme.

    The headlights are too square, they look really chopped. The grille and bumper are too square too.

    Meh...I don't really think a Nissan would be a good start to make essentially a new Olds.

    But other than that, fix the squareness and it will look a lot better.

    Not bad, but I'd use the current Olds logo, not the old one. Otherwise not bad.

    Good start and neat idea! I do agree with the others though, I think it would be in the vehicles best interest to use the current logo and updated headlights. Great idea though!

    No, no, no, the new Olds logo was part of the problem. The old one is beautiful. (I don't much care for the Bravada front end either, though.)

    As its been said before those headlights have to go. They look like bandaids slapped on the car. The nose just plain reminds me of a pontiac more than anything. And lastly the old badge is, well, old. I dont think they would use it for new car. Although the company is called OLDsmobile

    It is a pretty good chop. The headlights remind me of the old Cutlass Supreme. I think you have the right idea with the headlights, but you can make them look better.

    I also like the old Olds logo. A classic touch.
