    Impala? YES :)

    okay, okay I know that I am going to hear about using something similar to the front end of the Camaro, however I did want to incorporate ideas such as the "new family face of Chevrolet" that I keep hearing about. I must then assume that the Camaro's face with be pretty close to the new "family face."

    I would love for the vehicle to feature RWD, with an optional AWD for those who poo-poo RWD for it's "difficulty" in snow. In my ideal world, it would also feature the choices of a six-speed auto, a six-speed manual, or, for those who want both, the option of a tap shift. Throw in a base V-6, a higher tuned V-6, and at the top: a V-8, and everything would be peachy.

    I didn't even realize it, but it does! I believe it could be the shape of the headilghts, as well as the little portion of the hood that curls down to the grille....

    The profile reminds me of a stretched G6 sedan and the vent on the front fender reminds me of a slightly watered-down Sky or C6 vent which would be a nice touch for the V8 SS model assuming it's riding on a stretched version of Zeta. Overall it's very nice looking but I would try to take the Bel-Air out of the front end.

    looks like a cadillac from apillar forward with a scion tc roof and g6 vert. lines along the car as well as pontiac rims and saturn sky hood vents mounted horizontally versus vertically. LOL....

    better drawing skills than i have though. keep up the good effort!

    the front end is hot, but i think the perspective is off a little in the rear espicially the rear wheel although its not too bad and its not like i can do any better. overall i like the design although i think it slopes back to much, im thinking the rear part of the roof should be more upright.
    i give it a B+

    Perspective is a off. Try just drawing a nice box with a centerline through it, then add all the details. You can then just trace over it for a clean looking final page.

    No rear overhang makes this very futuristic looking.

    I like the front very much.
    But your perportions are definitely off. The trunk seems almost non-existant, and the whole thing just seems absurdly long.

    I echo your thoughts completely. The front is nice but the car seems soooo long. Good work though.
