    I agree that the LaCrosse sedan isn't particularly "sporty". But I think there's a slick coupe hiding inside that sedate sedan, as my chop shows.

    I think a LaCrosse based GN is in keeping with the spirit of the GN. Don't forget, the original GN was based on a rather ordinary Regal! I think my chop might have a legitimate shot at production, since it shares many of the bits of the LaCrosse.

    Thanks for your feedback (and compliment) I appreciate it!

    It is, at the very least, a better LaCrosse coupe than the last chop someone tried.

    Revised, chopped greenhouse a bit more, longer hood, new grill, more "fastback" roofline...

    Now looking more Jag or Aston like than ever, which is not a bad thing!

    I like the first and second one alot. Very British Luxury looking. The third starts to look like a Bentley GT, which is always a good thing.

    I think the first two would make a "nice" Buick coupe, minus the hood scoop, but aren't nearly aggressive enough for a GN. I'm pretty satisfied with the final one though.
