    Ummm. . . I don't like it. . . The front end looks like it's melting. I like the idea of a big, stocky, sedan with power that could compete with the 300c, and I like it coming from the Pontiac division, but I think you're a tad off with the styling here, Rex.

    I figured the Big grille is working for Chrysler, it may work for Pontiac as well.

    The grill actually almost looks circa 1930 or something. I do agree that it's a little too much even for Pontiac styling. Just pull it up to bottom corners of the headlamp set backs. Or, if you want to keep it that big try a chrome or brushed aluminum honey comb.

    It could be named the Pontiac Snaggletooth.

    Maybe the grill would look better with a 4 port grill instead of the 2 port so just a horizontal divider between the top and bottom sections.

    How about chrome grille inserts, like some of the Grand Prix's get? This might help overcome the look of two gaping holes, and chome always adds an upscale look.

    Exactly what I was thinking in my previous post, Ming. I think it adds some class as well as smooths out the form.

    I actually kind of like it. It's true about the oldskool lok to the front end, if you imagine the centre divider is gone if looks exactly like the huge grilles they had in the '30s. Awesome job rex

    hey rex, overall the car looks great but i think you need to do something about the grille it just looks a little out of place. keep up the good work!

    Still doesn't make the cut. Just because it is working for someone else, doesn't mean it is going to work for you. I'd think Pontiac better stick with what they have now.
