Hey A.J.,
I had some time today and I thought I would try and help you out on your Bonneville. You , like others, have a strong passion to draw cars and doing profiles is one of the best ways. It give you character and design description instantly. I hope you don't mind but I thought this could help some. My design isn't terribly clever or anything but look at the stance and proportions.

Yeah, I hiked the hood to give it that muscular, in-your-face look. I kind of went a little unrealistic with this one.

Yours is very good. Thanks for the input.

Tored... love the design but boy you gave that the car a big fat ass... look how thick it is compared to the front end. This car wouldn't work in 3 dimensions I don't think. It'd be a huge wedge!

The wedge shape accentuates that but just think, you've got to fit in a gas tank a spare (usually), and trunk room. It's big, but for a reason and yes, it would work in 3-D. :)

Kinda looks like a Dodge Neon. But that's ok, it looks a whole lot better than a Neon, really. ...

Look at all the cars on the road today, at lot of them have fat a**es but yeah, what TorRed said. I mean have you looked at the Grand Prix, G6 or Colbalt's big caboose? They all work, and they work for a reason. You've got to fit the stuff down in there. This is why you don't see too awful much under the cars nowadays. When the designs of the windows became slanted, the rear had to grow a bit, and a lot of designers have done a great job making the bumpers look good. If the rear didnt grow a little, the car would have to drop off and look weird tward the back, and the trunk wouldn't be high enough to store something the least bit tall... Just something I learned observing cars.
