    My Firebird 2008 Concepts

    Hi y'all i've designed a concept version for a 2008 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400. I'm soon starting on the rear. Also will add a Smokey & the Bandit Trams Am version, and the series 1 firebird. dunno if i can make a good 80 model [dont like it so much ] but we'll see.
    hope you like it, I've used the all-known Chevy Camaro Concept as the base.
    I remodelled it to my favourite bird: the 70's - 73's series 2. Don't have one at the moment but will buy it when i get a good one [hard to find in Holland].
    Added the Ram Air front to the hood [since it is a formula 400]. I know the Trans Am side panels shouldn't be on a 400, but i just love the in[or out?]take I think gold looks the best on it

    take a look, the rear will follow as soon as possible


    got it in different colors too:

    Re: My Firebird 2008 Concept

    used your comments and updated some minor things like door handle, grille, pontiac sign in grille, left mirror. looks better now indeed!
    edit: once again edited the shop a bit, added chrome framing on the windows now, repositioned the pontiac V-logo, and improved the left headlight outline

    [see original 1st post for update]

    btw added the Smokey & The Bandit Firebird, too

    That's pretty cool, though you should give the rear spoiler a little more defintion.

    The nose on the 2nd one for sure! Both are good, but the nose on the 1st one is still to Camaroish, the 2nd one is easily FB. Though, one thing - the lights look directly out of the 70's as well - how about squared-off jewel-like headlamps instead of those crappy yellow halo's?

    really like the gold early 70's kind. Love the bandit one, but its a little grainy.

    The front end on the second one looks so retro that it looks dated, espescially the headlamps. The top one is great though.

    Fantastic!

    Definitely the square headlights.
    What GMNA should be:

    Chevy: everyman vehicles with some fringe models
    Buick: pampered-not-pompous personal luxury
    Caddy: pompous flashy mall-bling luxury. "I'm rich and you know it."
    GMC: T-rucks, aka: General Motors Commercial.
