I was bored and figured I'd post some random pics. The above is what you would call a bulge.

Random couple of G6 pics.

I must admit I was a little nervous entering this thread :P

Love that old gas pump, but it seems like it's in the middle of a field :blink:

Haha, not quite a field, but a yard. It's next to an old garage. But there used to be one in the middle of the woods across the road from my house. No lie. :P

The photos are very telling about the area where he lives. It shows history, and life from an era long since past. He managed to bring an interesting perspective to the images. Some of them remind me of some of the movies we all have seen.

Very good sir.

Good photos. Funny you post pics of the bulging Solstice headlight, as I was transfixed by that same design element on one in the showroom while I was getting my truck serviced a couple of weeks ago. I like how it's squared-off at the top outer corner, then round everywhere else. Edited by ocnblu

Great shots! The gas pump if very Americana style. You should explore this more as a career, at least freelance and make some extra money.

I loev the photo of the gas pump... cool patina.

[ CONTAINS LEAD ]

The Solstice's headlights do not bother me, that's a function of

almost any-semi-flush mounted headlight... it will have a bulge

to accomodate the reflector & bulb. However these are all just

gross, non-sensical and completely unaerodynamic.

I'm wondering if it's a function of having the side marker visible

from all angles... in which case we here in the USA need to just

take on the European standards and incorporate a side marker

into the front fender between the door and wheelwell... those

are not nearly as lame and puke-inducingly ugly.

The bulge is there so they dont have to have a separate light on the side, it saves money vs. a side marker and complies with regulations worldwide. Less money+less complexity=we're stuck with it, for better or for worse.

Yeah... that's what the bean counters will tell us.

Good thing the Camaro's designers did not give

that car such a gross & ungainly design flaw.

You seem to be very accepting of modern cars'

shortcomings, I'm the exact opposite... I do NOT

like to settle for ugly, mediocre or disproportinate

designs. if we all had a "oh, F-it... good enough"

attitude I think everyone would drive one of two

cars: Camry & "Camry with rear door delete".

Better not look too closely at the Camaro concept's interior IMO.

LOL

I like the model the best, cool lookin pic.

Transfixed, is not the word I would use for myself. I find the Solstice's headlight bulge just as bad as any other headlight bulge. I much preferred the concept's flush headlights.

Thanks for the comments, guys. Randomness is my specialty. :P

Look closer, even the Conceopt has a bulge... it's more subtle but it's there!

There's a difference between having a bulge and having the headlight shape follow the body lines. If there weren't, everything from an XLR to an Aveo would be classified as having a bulge.

Well stated.

Everything with modern composite bulbs...

my '59 Buick does not have oversized glass pimples no matter what the definition.

& a new Camry:

Here's a 2008 Impala SS: (no better, quite possibly worse)

:hijacked:

That one picture is just entirely too large to be posted. Not everyone has high-speed internet. Simple rule: It's larger than you're monitor, don't post it.

You have a one track mind. Bringing you're Buick into this and posting a massive load of pictures = Thread hijacked. As well, this thread was about more than just headlight bulges, in case you couldn't tell.
