    New Suburban styled Impala

    This one was a request I whipped up for Exploder......

    Kind of makes for a tough looking RWD Impala I think.

    The very end of the trunk is a little too pronounced... otherwise, I actually really like it! Looks very tough!

    Could you make up a 2 door version? I'd love to see an Impala SS again.

    ha wow. thats awesome looking I think if you made the hood not so "thick" softened the end of the car by the trunk, and possibly put a new lower front fascia on it...think new Buick Lacrosse or w/e its being called...that would look very nice

    While it is interesting, it isn't my favorite. Feels very Chrysler LX; the new magnum face comes to mind. I also agree with Paul, the trunk is a little too pronounced. Perhaps an angle that isn't so steep?

    Again though, very interesting thought.

    You're right. The grille makes it look like a Chevrolet.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    I actually really like it. Makes it look more masculine, which is something the current Impala could use.

    Only constructive criticism is the trunk which I think should slope down just a tad more.

    Thanks. It looks great - tough and distinctive.

    The grill could be slightly shorter, no longer than the headlights vertically.

    That is cool. Not bad at all.

    I agree w/Johnny, Make a 2dr model, please?
    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!!

    Thanks for all the comments guys.

    Unfortunately we suffered a power outage and surge that blew my computer. My IT guys away and I may choose to go shop for a new computer anyway, rather than fix the old one. So I have no access to my chop software for a few days. When I do get it back on-line I will try some of the suggestions.

    I hope your Hard Drive is ok.

    Also, I suggest investing in a surge protector!
