    I think the trunk is a little too long and blunt, but otherwise it's very good. Maybe try to integrate the rear wheels with the door a little bit? Or instead, maybe just shorten the trunk a little bit.

    Wow, that looks Phaeton-sized! I like it, the trunk does seem a little long for some reason, but it is a good looking chop.
