Let me know what you think! They need some work..but hopefully I have distinguished a direction somewhat....also, if the 442's angle is annoying, let me know and Ill change it...because I personally dont know how I feel about it. Thanks. Hoey.
I kind of feel a bit of need to explain how I feel Olds would fit in, along with the direction of my designs. Okay, so I see Oldsmobile be designed with a bit more upscale and luxury look then Chevy and more sportiness then Buick...so somewhere in between those two..if that makes sense? The Vista-X is based of the evolution of station wagon to crossover. And what was one of the ultimate station wagons? The Olds Vista Cruiser, but today, with cross overs being a popular market..I say call it the Vista X (or Vista Cross) and it will be a Lambda. In the 70's, the 442 was Olds' bad boy, 4 on the floor, 4barrel carb, dual exhaust ran all the way up toa 455 big block..it was american muscle to the utmost. Today, it will stand for 4 seater, LS4 and stay true to the dual exhaust. This car will possibly share the platform with the new Camaro. A base model will be the Cutlass (trying to think of a new name) and it will come with the 3.8 S/C motor...because even the Cutlass was a pretty sweet machine back in the day. Possibly, if we see the Monte Carlo on a new platform that has RWD, the 442 and Cutlass could share that instead of the Camaro. Also..remember the late 70s-mid 80's...the Monte Carlo SS..the Buick Grand National ..and the Oldsmobile 442...lets bring 'em back guys!
Heres my influence for the 442...going for the extent of retroness that the new camaro has..
