    The Cadillac emblem on the back of the XTS chop needs to be moved up like it is on the other. Otherwise, it's awesome.

    Personally, I love it also! You have pulled off a tricky design and turned it into something thoroughly modern. Nice work

    Now add 2 more doors and it becomes Cadillac's answer to the Mercedes Benz CLS! Good work!

    I love the bustleback look, but you should overlay art and science more.

    You are a brave man! I like it mostly, but would prefer the top line angle all the down to the bumper as in the original. I suspect you were mirroring the Chrysler bustleback approach. But for my tastes, the SeVille was the best, in part because it derived from a 30s-40s luxury car I still can't remember the name of. But I think it was a Rolls Royce.

    I also forget the name of the guy who designed the bustleback Seville. I think it was his last great hurrah...not Harley Earl, I think....

    I always saw a Rolls Royce Phantom when I looked at a Seville. I once saw Queen Elizabeth riding in one and I guess it stuck with me because one of the reasons I loved the bustle back Seville was I thought it looked fit for royalty. Not that I'm any sort of monarchist. Blech!

    What you are lacking in this attempt is real cadillac lights out back

    Damn, it actually works! I'm not sure about the seemingly unnecessary pillar though. I guess it is necessary for a design and balance standpoint, but would the window forward of that post roll down?

    I've posted this subject in GMI Commentaries as I think more people than members who visit Reader's Talent may be interested in it. And the many visitors/lurkers who come to GMI can't see Reader's Talent.
