    Pontiac Ventura

    hmm...a lazy sunday afternoon looking through an old car craft made me want to mess around with a Pontiac Ventura theme...it came out kinda ugly but oh well...it kept me occupied for a little bit.
    perhaps a big fat RWD coupe to compete with the Nissan Z?

    It looks kind of cool, but it looks like it's about to blow up.

    Re: Pontiac Ventura

    A VERY good design and sketch, but "Ventura" just feels like a minivan to me, I know what the difference between the Venture and the Ventura is, but it's still there inside me...

    There is a small hint of Dodge and a big deal of MG X-Power in it, but I guess it's unintentional. Just call it Fiero and I'm fine with it!

    Re: Pontiac Ventura

    You should make the center hood a bump instead of a line to be more like the original. It's pretty good.

    Extend the cabin and nose a bit and you'll have it! (just... change up the grille... it's to Dodge these days...)

    my thoughts excatly. NONONO, fiero is a small, MID-ENGINED aerodynamic car, and alledgedly a FIRE HAZARD . this is in no way, shape, or form, what ANY fiero should EVER look like. if pontiac made a FE fiero, i'd go to my local dealer and break it's windshield with a baseball bat.

    -oh, about your drawing...the only concern i have is the unnecesarily high beltline. don't make the cabin any bigger, it's perfect, i'd just recommend bringing everything below the roofline/hoodline/trunkline up a scale 5 inches. i think that would make it look less like a compact and more like a Z-fighter.
