    That's not too bad.

    A couple nitpicky things. the B-pillar on the driver's side needs to be moved further back. Look at the driver's window, it's practically a triangle. It's not like that on the passenger side.

    The hood bump thing is not centered. not sure if that's the look you were going for, but I don't think so.

    The wheels /tires seem too big for the wheel wells.

    Aside from that, some nice wrok. I like the headlights, and the truck bed is done well.

    Wow! Looks rockin'! If nothing else that would make a nice GXP front end! I kinda like the idea... though if the SUbaru Baja is any indication, it wouldn't be such a hot seller!

    i think a longer cab, doors would be appropriate here - unless its only for short people who like to drive seated perfectly vertically.

    Okay, Rex...some nitpicky things on your nitpicks. :p

    Look at the driver-side window of the original pic of the Vibe. It is also practically a triangle. That's just the perspective of the far side of the car and since it seems the truck's B-pillar is in generally the same place as the original's I think it looks fine.

    Also, the hood bump IS centered, because there are two of them. Looks like he was going for a twin-cowl hood design.
    The only thing I agree with is the wheels are a tad big, but then again this is just a fun concept. No need to be spot-on with the realism. Great job.
