    Verano: Another Go

    Quick chops of tweaks to the front and rear ends.

    I would put a chrome strip between the taillights like the Regal, but that would take too long. I hope you like.

    Nice work... a few bevels and mouldings can make a surprising difference.

    And of course you realize everyone is now going to insist that you add the chrome strip right?

    While I think it looks good, your tack with the headlights, were it to be produced, would probably be criticized for looking too much like the Cruze.

    It does make it look more menacing, though. And I like the subtle changes to the lower part of the front bumper.

    It'd be interesting to see this with chrome-trimmed mirrors, puddle lamps, and a chrome DLO molding.

    What's even more interesting to me is that this car is coming with the wipers mounted on the outer edges of the windshield...like the old W-bodies and U-bodies. I like it.
    Peace,

    Not bad, but the portholes have to go.
    They don't belong on the hood to begin with & not on a car this small that will not have a V6/V8 as power plants.
    The taillights should be bigger, maybe replace where the chrome bar was more red taillight lens.


    !!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    I liked the bling on the back - rear end looks boring now

    front end tweaks are nice - looks more sinister

    I love the lower bumper lines that connect with the grill. Makes it look amazing and gives it some shape rather than just a flat piece of plastic.

    That particular shade of red does absolutely nothing for this car. The rear spoiler looks ridiculous also.

    I know you didn't pick the color or the rear spoiler as you were working off of what was already present in the original pictures, but neither aspect works in favor of this car.

    I HATE the spoiler. It looks like it came from Pep Boys.

    Looks like the entire car came from a Pep Boys parts catalog to me.

    I feel like I'm looking at those pics in magazines where you have to find 8 different things. Sadly, I could barely find 2.
    Get used to more.

    The front does look better but now it looks exactly like the lacrosse (not a bad thing)
