    Impala

    I know this is awful, and it's probably the worst chop you've ever seen. But I would've felt bad not entering anything. Didn't realise it ended so soon; just put this together real quick. It looks amateurish, but I figured what the hey.

    It's actually quite good, especially given that GM could do that quite fast and cheap and salvage the Impala just a little bit. What you need to do is make the front "opening" a bit narrower (and move the headlights accordingly), so that it would fit with the front of the car.

    Wow, the body-colored tires look quite interesting.

    Re: Impala

    It looks like you've just cut off all the overhang - that's where the engine is.

    Re: Impala

    like the wheel choice and car color but front end is too retro and too short to fit a v8

    You're WAY to hard on yourself. That isn't bad at all..it's actually quite good. GM could redesign the Impala like this very easily..do I smell an MCE? I really like that. You're certainly getting my vote.

    I agree..that would be a nice update.

    Re: Impala

    Now that people pointed it out I see where the problem is - it's not that much too wide as it is simply too far into the front - you effectively cut the engine in half It's a FWD car, we won't change it, so I believe it would have been OK with the overhang AND this front. Suddenly, Impaler's greatest shortcoming would be gone. I guess it could soldier on like that for a few more years actually! What would you propose for the rear?

    Re: Impala

    It's not bad...although I wish it was cleaned up a little bit.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Re: Impala

    Wow, thanks guys...I thought it was bad, but I'm pretty much critical of everything I do. I appreciate all the comments, and I'll work on it a little more if I get a chance.
