    It's OK, although I'd never buy one.

    Maybe a little less length in the doors/area between the wheels?

    Maybe just a little less length?

    Nice, but the handle is absolutely redundant. I disagree about the length, the biggest problem is the "girth" - it looks awfully stocky, almost like an armored car.

    well, it's pretty much an australian muscle car, the stang's pretty bulky, and the camaro most likely won't be too thin either.

    Re: Next-Gen Holden Monaro

    IMO the trouble is the relationship between the rear wheel cutout and the c-pillar -- a pretty important one in getting a tight, active looking car. I'd either move the wheel cut-out back a bit, effectively lengthening the wheelbase. Or, I'd move the c-pillar forward on the body a bit, probably reducing the rear-quarter window in the process. Either should tighten up the proportions a bit. If I didn't suck on chops, I'd try it myself, but I'm more of a critic than an artist!

    so are you suggestiong a smaller cabin with a bigger rear deck? or the same car with a longer wheelbase but same overall length?

    I like it a lot, it looks like an Australian Camaro or something. I wouldn't see it as a good GTO though.

    yeah, the cabin is from the camaro concept, but the GTO wouldn't be a blatant rebadge like the current/previous model. the new GTO's gonna be more retro-inspired, have its own identity, not the monaro's.
