    Malibu Coupe

    I started this for the weekly photo mod contest (#77 the Aveo) but didn't have time to finish it, so here it is a little late. I thought it would make a good Malibu coupe, it would be RWD and powerd by a small V8 like the old Malibus.

    As an Aveo coupe, it looks pretty good. Not a Malibu though.

    It'a s too big to be an Aveo coupe, it's Malibu sized.

    I'm not trying to say it dosn't have lots of Aveo in it, I didn't set out to make a Malibu I just thought it was more fitting of name becasue of the size.

    How about the Maliveo or the Avelibu or the Available! An American Revolution.

    Thats pretty nice but you should make the doors a bit longer and have the window on the side extend more towards the C pillar.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Wow! Excellent job. It looks great as a coupe and I love the color.

    The Aveo "look" translates very nicely into larger cars.

    Too bad the Malibu does not have that front end.

    I didn't realize how much I liked the frontend of the Aveo!! That face looks good on a car that has wheels that are proportional.

    Thats the point I was trying to make by posting the chop, when I first saw the Aveo pics I thought it had some good styling features but it just wasn't proportioned right. I think if the Malibu and Impala shared some of the ideas from the Aveo they'd be much better looking. Why does the Aveo get the muscular fender flares and aggressive looking front end and the Impala just looks plain and wimpy?

    That is a good question that Chevy will hopefully address in the next update of the Malibu and Impala.
