    shouldnt the bonneville be a sedan? aside from that, it looks good. the side intake (on the bumper) could use some work. like make a thin line on the left side of it that is a lighter color to make it a bit more realistic, it also looks a bit too sharp compared to the actual car.

    actually the bonneville special was not a sedan



    i think it was based off the original vette concept.

    The grill shouldn't go above the line separating the flat front from the hood like it does. The left half is the most noticeable offender. Whats with the wrinkle of the left headlight? Are they supposed to be set in? If so then why isn't the otherside inset? Other than those two things, its a great chop, one that was completely unexpected -a pontiac beating the zo6's 500+hp?- great job camaro chris.
    :EDIT: Upon further inspections, though loving the idea, I see that all that really identifies it as a pontiac is the grill and solstice wheels. SOme more ponitac detailing would be a great addition.

    It reminds me of the Daytona Prototypes. Good job! Not sure I would call it a "Bonneville" --- which conjures up a big boat luxury sport coupe/sedan in my mind. The "Special" part is a bit of obscure history that is pretty neat.

    the wheels, headlights, and grilles should have a blue reflection, if you're confused look at the roof/windshield.

    Reminds me of other supercars. The only thing that is Pontiac about the looks of this car is the grill and the emblem. Well done though.
