    This is very sharp! Quality and style would do a lot to bring Buick back.

    I am sorry, but the rear part is all that's wrong with the (US) LaCrosse taken and multiplied 100x.

    I think the base was a Ford Iosis concept:

    But the final product looks spectacular.

    You are improving, but still far too much LaCrosse/Grand Prix in the greenhouse. I hate cars where rear passengers feel as if they were 3 years old and can't see past the beltline.

    Wow. It's pretty cool when you break it all down. So considering what you used and the final product, your chopping skills are top notch. Just need to smooth the edges.

    Are the headlights from an Accord?

    Those look very nice. I really hope that the next Lacrosse or Regal looks something like those. Kind of like a 4-door version of the Chinese Riviera concept.

    thank you. i appreciate that a lot.i need to work on blending sheetmetal though. the foglamps and lower grille look awful. but the side molding i like a lot.and yes the headlights are from the accord.i wanted cateye lamps but couldnt find the perfect set.the accord was the closest I could get.looking at it now they're actaully a smidge too big.
