    Need Inspiration...

    Someone give me something to draw...I realy don't want to draw another Oldsmobile or Saturn right now...

    Right now, I'm leaning toward a next-gen (yes, next-gen) Chevrolet Malibu.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    How about a new 2dr Chevelle?
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    I second a GMT-355 replacement. You've done a good job with sedans...time to see what you can do with a truck.

    Design something completely different where every surface of the car has a purpose or even a dual purpose. Sort of like a new Batmobile, but make it your own. Maybe it's a bread truck that converts to a bass boat... Maybe it's a combination Border Patrol vehicle/tornado tracking machine with a big telescope or a stun grenade launcher.. or maybe it's Dale Earnhardt Jr's prototype racecar that he uses to secretly abduct prostitutes with... maybe it's just a Malibu with side mirrors that can be used as a camping stove. Just go at it from a completely different angle.

    How about the next generation HHR?

    That should give plenty challenge to you.

    What about something non-GM? God knows we could use a unique Mercury, or an inspiring Honda.

    I think you should go with the Malibu...

    I'm working on one too for a next-gen, it'd be cool to see how hey come out from two different perspectives.

    Why wouldn't you try to redesign the G6 showing how a good all-over facelift by GM could look like? Almost like Malibu, but more fun

    Re: Need Inspiration...

    WOW! I didn't think i' get THIS much feedback...

    I've made a decision, and will probably draw most of the suggestions made over the course of the next few months.

    As for what's being drawn first, that's classified...

    Re: Need Inspiration...

    Personally i would like to see a new design for Mercury, because today they seem to look empty, soulless. Other luxury brands, for example Lincoln has it's new design direction, beginning with the MKS (or even MKZ), Cadillac has it's unique front end and taillights and even Chrysler has it's unique front grill, so i think Mercury needs to have something too. Any ideas?
