    There's more to making a coupe than erasing the door line.

    Re: Pontiac GTO

    rex is right, try making the space between the b-pillar and c-pillar a LOT smaller, as well as the space between the door and the rear wheel. oh, and to make the rear wheel/fender look more 'muscular', try copy/pasting the front wheel/fender onto it. also, i think you should at least TRY to make the bumper different, right now the front looks like a G5-style rebadge .

    Don't like it. Too bland and not aggressive. It also looks too fat.

    You've managed to create a GTO that is more "invisible" (read : boring) than the current one.

    Re: Pontiac GTO

    First off, why use the Statesman? If a GTO was going to be based on any Zeta vehicle, it's the Commodore or any of the HSV models.

    Next, the twin-kidney grille kind of doesn't fit with the rest of the car. Now if you were going a la Vauxhall, then it would make sense.

    Finally, it just looks like a 2-door sedan! Make it more of like a fastback and this could be pulled off.

    Actually I think he put a Torrent front on it. Either way, it's just so wrong in so many ways.
