    My idea of what the next gen. Malibu should look like

    Have you noticed how the successful midsizers (camry and accord) always resemble their predecessors? they take the same basic design and refine it to look more modern. I think this connects buyers with the previous gens. and makes them feel they're getting basically the same product with the same attributes. I think thisll do good for the malibu, and so here's my design:

    I think you hit the nail right on the head.

    It doesn't, it says that under each pic, its just that we don't actually see it.

    And your drawing, I think its a bad idea in the first place. Everyone knows the current Malibu is the king of bland, and i don't think theres that many fans like the Accord and Camry. Another thing about your drawing, there all starting to look the same, this one looks like the rest of them just with the current Mali's front on it

    That's not bad - it's got a nice 'world' look to it. I think it's a really good combination of sport and class, kind of like the Maxima or Galant. Can't see the second pic though.

    well, ive only done two drawings, one of the cobalt, and one of the mali. The front end bumper is what i want to be chevys corporate grill, so thats why i used it on both.

    Looks pretty nice, but I don't see much resemblance with the old one..but I definitely don't mind.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.
