Monte Carlo Chop

Intrepidation    839

As many of you know, I hate this car. I find it to be one of the ugliest, most poorly proportioned vehicles sold in the US in recent history (besides the Aztek of course). Still, you'd be amazed what happens when you trim the fat, fix the proportions, and give it plenty of tweaks. It's all about the details. So here you guys go, enjoy! Comments and suggests are always welcome!

Hey cool. I really like that top picture, thanks for posting. Not bad. The second pic looks a bit out of proportion, ehh.

Dodgefan: have you considered shortening the car's rear overhang a bit?

It is actually shorter than stock, since I moved the rear wheels forward. Perhaps shortening the overhang more would look good. I'll try it later.

I like the first one better. The chop's wheels are too close to the front. Talk about bad proportions. The front has like no overhang and on top of that the back has a giant overhang. Just my opinion.

Proportions kind of like this?

I think to change the Monte to rear wheel drive proportions, you'd need to completely redesign it to get the best results.

However, you did well with what you had!

DF: You certainly improved the look, but a ton more could be done. The MC was one of the nastiest looking things out of GM since the Aztek - any changes can only help.

I noticed a shorter wheelbase, but the butt still looks too big. Big butts may look good on some girls, but not in cars :nono:

EDIT - didn't tell you on my 1st reply but I liked the effort in turning the Monte into something more interesting
