Looks too LandRoverish.
And they look like they're wearing a snowplow.
As for making the grille, I usually make a long rectangle, then divide it up.
Design Wise= D+.
Sorry, but everyone here knows you can do better than this. It's dispreportionate, and the wheels are way too small.
(no offense Mr. Burns)
so you guys dont feel terrorized?
The Feeling is Nausea.
As usual, execution is top notch but im not a huge fan of the design.
Ugh, good execution, but I HATE the design. Does NOT say Hummer.
The seven slotted grill is Jeep's Trademark.
I like the two door; I think it would sell. But I think a four door, that size, is problematic.
Why am I seeing an Aztec in the first pic??
i guess its back to the drawing board. thanks for your comments guys!
and hummer's as well.Originally Posted by Peugeot_206
AM general traces its roots back to the General Products division of studebaker. that division was bought by kaiser, makers of the jeep. tehn kaiser was bought by AMC in 1970. when AMC partnered with renault, AM General was spun off.
during that period of AMC ownership, the hmmwv was developed to replace the jeep.
seeing as they were both under the AMC umbrella, the hummer and the jeep acquired a family resemblance.
chrysler then buys AMC primarily for the rights to Jeep, and the hummer brand rights gets sold to GM, and you've got two brands under two separate corporate umbrellas with the same DNA.
in short, a seven slot grille is most certainly a hummer trademark, just as it is a jeep trademark.
