    Pretty nice. Maybe a bit bland, but nice.

    I think the Rim size/wheel size throw it off.........

    It reminds me of a mix between the Grand Am and Grand Prix styling.

    The Elipses aren't off, they're too small......

    It gives the impression that the car is riding on 14"..........

    Re: Pontiac Grandprix

    no offense, it is a nicely executed drawing, however it seems a little too "economy-car" like. The ride seems a bit high, the car is a little too bland, and the wheels are a bit too small. I think that Pontiac needs to head in the sport direction, rather than the safe (toyota bland) direction.

    Mr. Burns, I really like your renderings but at times they look a bit too tall overall or thick in the body (imho of course). Sometimes I copy them and shrink the height just to see what that does. This time going from 493 to 400 made a big diff - tho then I blew up the wheels so the opening was almost the size of the outer arch.
    Hopes this sounds constructive cuz that's how I mean it.

    Ahh, I really like this but it's not really styled enough to be called a Grand Prix IMO.
