OK, I have desided to take on a huge Photoshop project. I am going to chop every vehicle GM has in the follow Brands:

Cadillac
Chevrolet
Pontiac
GMC
Buick
HUMMER

That is a lot to take on, so I would like your suggestions on it...

Please post how you would like to see me chop a vehicle

Want a redesigned CSV?? Tell me how you would like to see it.....

Saturn: Use Opels, Opels, and some more Opels!
Chevrolet: Add some style...they need it...don't really have any specific suggestions, but they just need some modern styling.
Pontiac: Add some Solstice styling cues, soften lines. For the CSV...lower it, give it some hood scoops, more agressive wheel patterns, etc.
Buick: Rainer/CSV morphed together. Add some more style to the LaCrosse. I dont really know what you could do with the PA and LESABRE
Cadillac: I HAVE NO CLUE!! :( How about a STS based DTS with softer lines and Sixteen cues

Some ideas for chops, things I'd like to see:

Buick - a Holden Statesman for Buick
Chevrolet - A redone Suburban / Silverado interior
Saturn - agree with Tahoe, lots of Opel designs almost as-is, except the grille
Cadillac - A Cadillac Trailblazer! Kidding :p
Pontiac - A decontented Cadillac SRX or STS with softer Pontiac cues - to replace Bonneville. A version of Canada's Chevrolet Optra to replace Sunfire as base vehicle (this may have been done before)
GMC - A GMC cargo van version of the CSVs for fleet sales - Buick Terraza-like grille with GMC letters, less chrome, more black plastic ;).

Nsap, chill out. You only asked for suggestions a couple hours ago. Many people are watching the Super Bowl. Give us some time to think about it.

pontiacs based on holden hsv styling..

saturn with opel/vauxhall base


the new malibu with a little more masculinity; the new design is clean but a little wussy from the side.

buicks with a little seat/audi (yes i know, we're breaking corp. boundaries) clean lines

man, I gotta list for you...

A US made GTO out of a CTS. The vertial head lights hark back to a retro GTO. everyone wants one made, and Id like to see one. Make it nice like I know you can
Make the G6 a big sharper and slim her down a bit.
A 2dr GP would be nice too.
And make a Sunfire replacement.
Fastback Solstice. Have the roof of the car be very streamlined and merge with the back very softly.

Sharper lookin Cobalt. Something abotu the front isnt sitting right with me.
Change up the Malibu's front tend and perhaps add some more flare to the rear
Aveo- give it an Import make over, totaly Tunner Vision project! Scoops, wings, GFX, stickers galore. This could be Chevy's Scion. Tasteful please. Something that would get ever 17 year old ricers neck to snap at a SEMA show.
A C6 Z06 of your own creation. Dont add old C5 stuff to a C6, get creatave man!! L88 like hoods, rims, colors, what have you
I keep asking for a Camaro concept, but you dont have to work on that a lot. If you do, look twards Ferrari and other eurpean sports cars under 350k. Ferrari's 360, 575, 612, Aston Martins DB7, MB McLearn SLR, Maseratti, and Corvette flare.

A large Buick RWD/AWD sedan based off there current styling but look for cues of older Buicks. Port holes, polished metal accents and what not. Make it look like buying a lexus would be because they were giving them away.

A sportier Ion Sedan, but without the bugatti grill. Again, this is an import fighter, make the Ion something that will make you think twice about a Civic, Accord, Corolla, Mazda 3 and 6.
A Curve that can take away the RX8's thunder of handing and "Zoom Zoom" BS.
Change the mini van's face up a bit. Maybe taper off the rear of the van instead of giving it a SUV look. Something more streamlined.

GMC- Give all there trucks andro/steriods and juice them up. They should be bigger, stronger, and more rugged then Chevy's line up. The Denali's, make them nice looking with expensive flare. Not more then you want, but more then your used too...

Hummer... nothing?

Caddy.... a ULS based off teh Sixteen. Something really nice. Not as in your face as the Sixteen, but something that would make the krauts cry at night.
A redesigned(the way you want) Escalade. People cry and whine about badge engineering, well make this look different on the outside. Its still has to be big looking and you have to be able to fit 26inch spinners for the rappers.

Also, anything else you want, feel free to do..
Now, get to 'choppin!! :type:
