    I was going to ask which way was front, but I see the back word. Looks like a Pontiac. Keep going.

    I like what I'm seeing and would like to see some Impala design cues...any era..would be good. I really like the sharp edges...very contemporary!

    This is an interesting concept. If you actually drew it to a set of dimensions for a production car, I'm confident that it would look modern, but with a great bit of the feel of the '65 to '68 Impalas.

    Looks like a retro early 60s Impala to me, especially with those tailights.

    Re: well i just got into this

    I like it, but ditch the photoshop wheels. Consider doing a traceover so you get a uniform render.

    The daringly retro touch is in the corners of the car. In the '60s, you'll notice many GM cars had a 'concave' grille as the fenders jutted out past the plane of the grille, and the rear fenders flowed past the plane of the trunk (think '67 Chevelle - Buick Riviera).

    Now pretty much every car has a 'convex' front fascia due to aero concerns. I say if it sells cars, to hell with aerodynamics.

    Interesting. I was going to say Cadillac (Cien, XLR).

    I like it a lot. I agree that the proportions are right for a coupe, so I think if you can get some older-generation design cues on it (3 taillights is a good start), it'll make a great Impala.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your treatment of the apparently concave front.
