    I voted A. I can't see how the doors of B would slide back with those big bulgy fenders. A is much better. Looks good.

    Neither does a WHOLE lot for me, but A is definitely better.

    Problems with the rear fenders aside, I like B better. Ease up on the fenders, add a third round doomaflotchy for the classic third Chevy taillight, and I think you have a winner.

    I like the SUV-esque rear window on B better than the short half-window on A. I also like how B stands a bit more upright. Without the unworkable fender flares, B looks like a modern van, ready to sit up and work; a box that does what it's supposed to do and looks good doing it. A looks like a box trying to look sporty and looks like it'd be harder to see out of.

    Of course, I think that Chevy should start having amber turn signals in the back and one somewhere around the back of the front quarter panels, too. Can you include that in the style?

    What GMNA should be:

    Chevy: everyman vehicles with some fringe models
    Buick: pampered-not-pompous personal luxury
    Caddy: pompous flashy mall-bling luxury. "I'm rich and you know it."
    GMC: T-rucks, aka: General Motors Commercial.

    knowing that the back doors are sucide do you still think the fenders need toning down?
    (maybe an actually production version would be toned down some what)
    amber turn signals, thats interesting you should say that,
    here in NZ every car has them (euro-style lighting) but alot of car makers are making the indicators red like the brake lights (to look more american!) but when they are turned on they flash amber.

    A is a cleaner and more consistent design, even if it looks less practical (HUGE D-pillar) and less Chevy.

    They are both great, but I seem to like "A" just a little bit better.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Re: >>> Vote For Which Is CHEVY-VAN is Best

    I like things of A & B. I say blend them together!
    Obviously, the flared rear tire wells on B need to go. I think I like the side view of B is better than A. Though w/A, the lines of it look like it would be better in a Buick Minivan. So I say B for its boxy look. The wheels look like they should be switched between the 2 designs. Lastly, the tail lights should be replaced altogether. They look horrible. Too much like the HHR's.
    Since this is a Chevy Minivan contest, B looks more Chevy than A.
    A, again, looks like a Buick.
