    Pontiac 6000 NASCAR Official Pace Car

    Another one that I have implemented Torred's tutorial. This one came out a bit wierd, but I hope you like it.

    It is much much better, but it brings nothing new to the theme of the contest.

    Wow, Rex, way to be supportive.

    Good job, GrandPrix08, don't walk between parked cars, always eat your veggies, and never listen to Yoter people on taste in car design.

    As a drawing I really think it is quite good, very well proportioned etc, but the car as a design I'm not so sure about (sorry simple IMO) but to me it just doesnt seem like an exciting new design, doesnt look 13 years advanced from 1995.
    Good work though, and your improvements are coming in leaps!

    It seems that every car has the same firebird front end.

    1) I'm not a "yoter" person. Especially from a design point of view.
    2) This is the DESIGN section of the website. His image would have been perfect for the READER'S TALENT section of the site.
    There is nothing about his "design" that shows that as a specific use vehicle, which is the theme he should be working on.

    Huge improvement! But not everything can have a front end that would only look right on a Firebird.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

    It could be designed by Pontiac specifically for a NASCAR race.

    It looks good when you use the tutorial. But yeah the design...It's a no go.
