    Very well done chop, though don't care for the Bel-Air concept crossed with what looks like a 2-door Enclave.

    Wow, nicely done! Not crazy about the grille/headlamps, but the overall lines look great...nice touch with the red-line tires..that must be the "retro" part of your design!

    enclave cabin? looks well-done, but i'm not a fan of the overall design. i think a new nomad should look like the HHR concept from SEMA (the white 2-door one).

    That's pretty sweet Rex. Why not make it a hard-top. wasn't the 55 Nomad a hard-top? Maybe not, I can't picture it. Anyway nice idea.

    Re: Nomad Returns

    Yours skills are impeccable so now we can discuss the design of the vehicle and not get bogged down by visual distractions. I am all for a shooting brake concept but those front end graphics are sooo tired. Chevy just can't seem to come up with something progressive so I wished you would've wowed us with something that sizzles. The swag lines seems to work here, it's more heritage than retro. The kick-up over the rear wheel is a very very nice touch. Gives the wagon some character. Though the one thing I don't understand is why the 'C' pillar? I'm sure your thinking of a powered window there but I think it breaks up the clean expanse too much and looks gimmicky. A powered pop-out window, similar to a mini-vans would look a bit better.
    Again, I LOVE the idea of a Shooting Brake and your skills are outstanding.
    Oh, I just noticed the red lines....nice "Hot Wheels" touch.

    Re: Nomad Returns

    I personally have never ever ever liked the BelAir concept. I always thought it to be a half-assed last minute effort from GM to have a concept similar to the Thunderbird at the same time. No real thought went into it(as evidenced by them using the 5-cylinder engine).

    Here's a quick redo (changed the side glass, profile, etc... and also enlarged the grille).

    The first one is better! The bigger grille works, but the Ipanema C-pillar just defines the character of the car, it HAS to be there. How about deriving a 5-door version of it?

    Why do you keep saying "Ipanema"? What does that mean?

    Re: Nomad Returns

    I keep saying Ipanema because I just love this word. I love Brazilian Portuguese in general

    Ipanema is the name of the other (not Copacabana) beach in Rio. It was also used for a Brazilian Chevrolet model, which was a wagon version of Opel Kadett E. Originally it came in a 3-door version and this is how I call this body style (with a C-pillar).



    I don't find this vehicle beautiful, and it looks really crappy in this photo, I only like the name and this body style.
