    Pontiac Piranha

    This is my first chop. Be kind.



    A three-door replacement for the Vibe and G5, the new 2008 Pontiac Piranha.

    Hey good job! What program did you use? If GM used "badge engineering" this well done I might be able to live with it!

    Keep it up.

    That's really nice. That'd make a nice replacement for the Vibe, maybe offer the coupe and the 4 door hatch.

    A Holden Astra along with a few parts from the GTO Woodward concept and the Sunfire GX/P.

    True. But what would you rather have as a Vibe replacement: a Opel or a Toyota?

    Everyone, thanks for the kind comments.

    A most excellent first chop! That looks top-notch for sure. I actually really like the design and would like to see Pontiac ditch the "kidney bean" grilles in favor of something that looks like your design.
