    wow...that's actually really good, both quality-wise AND design-wise...
    way to include new and old designs...one of the better GTO concepts i've seen come out in a long time.
    great job! keep up the good work

    I really like the front end. As to the side view, I dislike the handles, they just make the car looked dated, swap them in for somthing more modern say.. vette like, maybe. The again sence you said this is your finished product, maybe you dont like my imput?

    well, if it's something as small as the doorhandles, i could work on it

    Re: GTO Concept!!!

    I love the front.... LOVE it!

    The side is good but needs some work. I can't totally pinpoint it. Maybe the wheel wells and rims need to be upsized to compensate for the fat rear fenders?

    As was said before, the door handles need to be modernized.

    Looks good on all accounts except the greenhouse and taillight. (Not to mention that I prefer the no-headlight look... how about the hidden-headlight trick? Or use those huge "foglights" and double them as headlights?)

    The taillight... turn it into the old GTO's 3 bars across taillight... and the greenhouse needs to be completely redone. That's my oppinion. It might be just because the front is not steeply racked enough for the rest of the car... or because the 3/4 window is to roundish, or what... the the greenhouse just doesn't seem to fit...

    Re: GTO Concept!!!

    That looks awesome man! I hope some designers at GM get a look at this. The only thing I would recomend you change is the headlights, or lack of headlights. I would suggest verticly stacked lights similiar to that of the new Caddys. Once again, great job!
