    Hi everybody. I was making my Pontiac Roadster when I realize: Damn, is ugly, I need help. So here is it... if you can do something for it and show it to me later, I'll appreciate it :mf_boff: .
    Sorry China, we'll buy your disposable electronics and lead coated toys, but when we Americans want a cheap car with horrible quality, we get a Chrysler.

    The grill isn't the half of it. You need to start with a GM product and build from there. A Dodge should not give birth to a Pontiac. It's unethical. At least get rid of the Viper emblem on the front end, and the plate on the front fender. Keep practicing.

    That was the first thing I thought, but I didn't find an agressive roadster in GM, so, at least I chose an american muscle car.

    Anyway thanks for taking a look

    Yes, I'll change it later. I'm looking for a new grill. As I said, I'm working on it.

    Sorry, but I don't like it at all.
    If you are to start with a competitor's model, you must change enough of it that it is no longer recognizable. The biggest problem with your concept, is that is screams "I'm a VIPER".

    If you want to make a Roadster, start with the Solstice, which is already pretty cool by itself.

    But here's one I modded anyway:

    Wow, that thing is really sweet, I mean it sure is an orriginal product for Pontiac! Do you think they'll hire Carol Shelby to design it? Ooooooh ooooh you know what would be really good? A V10 would really rock in this baby! Then give it some sort of a snake name. Then just for kicks, we can call it a dodge with new wheels and a mesh grill. But yeah, other then that the thing is totally pontiac.

    Thank you for your comments, that's what I was asking for Opinions and advices.
