OK so with the top one I was thinking more along a Mercedes CLK or 500 coupe competitor, taking into consideration ther comments here, we have the bottom picture, which tho the notch like roof top may be a bit too retro eldo, ...the rest is as suggested, have your own try at it if you like to...I used an STS as the base car.

Nice work so far. A few pointers:

1. Square-off the greenhouse.

The rounded rear-window doesn't work on the new CR-V and it doesn't work here, especially with the edginess of the rest of the design.

2. Lower the car.

The 4x4 look takes away from the design.

3. Give it Cadillac rims.

The aftermarket-look doesn't work for Cadillac. Something more elegant would set the look off nicely.

4. Rework the lower front-fascia.

The bottom edge of the upper-grille isn't jiving with the lower front air-dam.

The front end isn't too bad (refer to what Bimmer mentioned).. but the rest of the car doesn't say anything "Cadillac".. Sharp edges should all around and the rear window pillar of the green house should resemble a backwards thick L slightly angeled (if that makes any sence)

Here's a few pics so show what I'm talking about:

What exactly are you trying to accomplish here, MDM? That second version is revolting, the first, only incongruous.

Good effort, something with a large rear window in a

hardtop greenhoues like the first one but with a more

squared off C-pillar would be perfect.

WELL THEN...Help me out !!!

I am looking for a NEW Eldo....personally I like the first one. The second one turns me off tho, but I did it on comments here, perhaps I got it wrong...LOL.

Maybe the STS is the wrong car to build an Eldo from,....post up your chops on this if ya want to, I am just searching for a new Eldo look.

um... the comments here told you to make a thicker... more square c pillar... an you made a notchback... why i dont know... but if you lower the ride height as was also suggested but you didnt do... and then make a fastback with a squared c pillar... youll get what youre looking for
