    velite sedan

    as we all know the velite is going into production...but not as a coupe (yet).the 2008 buick velite will be a "spicy" if im not mistaken midsize sedan!!!!i was interested in imagining what that might look like...but i don't have photoshop (i'll have to learn)of course i can always draw it.but thats no fun.(that and i have no scanner) so i was wondering if you guys could do me a favor...lets have a "brainstorm".
    you guys could whip up a little magic with your chopping (or drawing skills) for a velite sedan.im really interested in knowing what you think the sedan might look like.if you could do this for me i would realllly appreciate it.this is not a design contest i repeat this is not a design contest.

    oh and to make things a little more interesting theres one rule:
    you can't use the velite's headlights or grille together.its either one or the other.have fun.and thanx

    -your pal charmless

    Sorry I had to move this, this section is for Official GMI contests, though you are welcome to post any contests you want to start, or even suggestions in the "Readers Concepts" Section. Sorry for the confusion pal.

    Well, I dare say it will look something like this:




    This is not a chop, it's the Opel Insignia. The sister car to the Velite.

    That reminds me alot of the Cadillac Imaj... which I liked... both of these cars look good... just change the rear end of the Opel into a sedan and there you go...

    Re: velite sedan

    its certainly not realistic to expect a car this awesome from Buick, but it would help them out incredibly.

    Man Bakerna, that's really impressive! Didn't like the sound of this thread, but you pulled that off nicely. Don't you wish it was enough for a concept to be a good idea... and not have to worry about the size of the market and profitability and garbage like that?!?

    I think an Insignia type vehicle would be good for buick. It fits as both the cargo carrying grandma-mobile that buick has always been but it's also kind of revolutionary with the doors and design of the rear end.

    And from the pic at the top it will be shared with the Opel.

    I don't suppose the phrase "Velite Sedan" conjured up images of Atomicshark's Century chop? (I'm too lazy to go look it up. It's beautiful.)
