    Well... it's got potential. Smooth out the sides a bit and change the rims so they don't look liek somethign that came from a late model Saturn.. an dyou'll be ok.

    It's kinda funny because I don't see this as futuristic in any way. Although I think trying to achieve something beyond conventional current design styles is a good goal, there are so many cars on the market that are so futuristic. This seems tame to me. What is it that you see that implies something of the future? I'd like to know because one persons perception over another certainly dictates demographic roadblocks; even in in simple design genres.

    Re: Grand Tourismo Omilegotto

    my only real concern is the cabin: the upper windowline seems a bit high for the cabin (like, lower it to show more roof metal and less interior), and i think it would look a lot more GTO with the rear-seat window-line going diagonally up. sorry if that's confusing, here's an example:

    no offense taken...in fact... that makes a lot of sense. I really did not consider the year GTO you referenced and I've always liked that year as well. I believe I will work on several variations and post for critique. THANKS TO ALL... I mean you didn't dump on it so...I'm grinn'n!

    Are you sure this isn't the Grand Tourismo Omelette?

    (FYI, GTO stood for Gran Turismo Omologato)

    It's a good thing I'll probably be dead by then. Just kidding, though it does require some work, such as smoothing out the sides and changing the front.

    Thanks for setting me straight! I couldn't find any of my old documentation and this is what came out of my head...I knew someone would know the correct spelling (If all else fails,,,throw out something totally wrong and one will get the answer!)
