    Hmm, interesting. From the side the front looks identical to a Charger (not necessarily a bad thing though). Any chance of working out a 3/4 front view?

    Good job with paint... the rear overhang is too large and the front end looks a bit too much like the last gen mustang. Nice job otherwise.

    I love the rear overhang, though! It just makes it an Impala to me. That trunk that just stretches on almost forever. And the profile does look a lot like the Charger, until you get the back 1/4.

    Awesome job but the front definitely looks too much like the charger. Maybe try making it slope forward less. Some 3/4 and front views would be awesome also.

    Definitely diggin your chop. One minor suggestion to make it look more RWD, lengthen the dash-axle ratio.

    I like the rear overhang. The rear portion of the roof and back door design reminds me 50 / 50 of the new Camaro and also of a 67-70-ish Caprice. Def see new Camaro in the taillights. IMO a sedan needs to have a trunk lid. I'm personally not a fan of the no decklid approach of say the Buick LaCrosse.
