    well its VERY cool. but it looks a just a little old. maybe get rid of some of the chrome on it and it will look more modern.

    Re: Gto

    I like it. Sure the front headlights could be a bit smaller but the looks smokin..

    Its definitely a different look and for that I'm thankful!

    Doubt they will ever build it as GM will probably go closer to the 1970 look more so than the earlier GTO you used as a basis for design.

    Thanks for the effort.

    If the general had made the GTO retro I think they would have copied the 68'-69' style. My my favorite style however is the 66'-67' which is whats pictured.

    no, i think he just manipulated the rear and it looks like the stang's, the side and cabin are all goat.

    the only thing i would suggest is that you make the headlights the same height as the grilles, and put them 'in' the grilles like on the new 9-5.

    I think he used a current GTO and modified the rear, making it look similar to a Mustang, as well. Then he added the front of the '67 GTO. It is interesting. I agree with losing some chrome and working on the headlights a bit to make it look more modern.

    That is pretty dam wild looking!

    I love the last one you did in black.

    I hope the next GTO adopts a similar stance and front end.
