That's awesome looking rendering of your concept Malibu SS

But how about this chevy red outlined sytle bowtie in front. Like these key chains I found at the chevy mall web site.

I would get a SS Maxx with 3.9 and 6spd manual with thoes rims, and dual chrome exhaust! I like the chrome bar across the front though. Everything else looks good, but thoes fogs look a little too after-thought.

CyberianHusky, maybe you can tell jfnz24 also make a gold outlined chevy bowtie. I think the Red and Gold bowties are going to look best.

Oh and one more thing, what about an interior shot?

How about a Equinox type of interior with Corvette (C6) gauges and aluminium and/or carbon fibre trim where the vents/radio/Vac controls are.

:krider:

Never thought about doing an interior shot. SOunds like a good challenge.

And here's that outline badge in blue. I think it looks better than the red.

I think the full gold bowtie is for the regular vehicles (I think it was for the trucks only before) and the red outline for its racing and performance-oriented vehicles.

Sorry, been away on business the last two days. I can hold off on submitting the proposal if you're going to do an interior shot. Up to you, though. Let me know.

As for colors, I personally like the red.

Go ahead and submit. I might try an interior, but it's a pretty difficult thing to do. I've never done one other than doing some trim colorizing.

Pictures and materials were sent to GM this morning. (Fingers crossed). I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Still sweet looking. Hope to hear something about such a model in the future.

It's surprising sometimes what a few minor tweaks can do for a car. The regular Malibu is kinda blah, kinda average-looking, seemed to say "May I help you?". Blackout the chrome and put some big wheels (I'd go with 17"-ers personally instead of those monsters...those are supposed to be what, 19? 20?), lower it a tad, and now the car says "...what the hell do YOU want?!"

Very nice.

Those rims are 18" or 19". In production they would most likely be 16 or 17. Given the way GM likes to leave a little room over the wheels I would suspect any lowering would be done strictly with ground effects. But maybe with a stiff suspension they could get bold and lower it a touch.
