    A quicky Chevelle

    As there are not that many Chevelles in the comp here is a quicky I did today. I just used small jpegs to play with, not large bitmap files, so that's why it's a bit blurred with spotty pixels in places. Just a quicky chop to show the idea.

    The two cars, one medium one large, should compliment each other in the Chevy range - not compete. The Chevelle's role is to be the practical everyday man's Hero Car.

    Nice, it looks pretty good. I'd really like to see someone do a chop based off of Mr. Burns drawing.

    Hi camaro_freak,

    Yes I stretched it and raised the roofline to make it a 4 seat GT, making it a much bigger car seen beside a Camaro - see below.

    I also raised the hight of the guard bulges to balance the proportions with the higher roofline.

    Basically I see the Chevelle as being for the guy who likes the Camaro but has a small family or the need to travel with two couples on board in comfort etc. And so needs the room inside, but retains most of the performance. The two cars should compliment each other - not compete.

    BTW, I was going for the 69 Chevelle mixed with the 70 Chevelle which both had the quad round lights set in a forward leaning grille (69) with a chrome strip across it (69 and 70). And they both have the hip over the rear wheel with the upswept lower edge to the rear side glass, although mine is half 69 half 70 rear side glass.

    That Chevelle Looks Awesome!

    Great Job!

    I would love to see what the rear end looks like though.
    Have you made the rear end yet?
