Not bad, I can clearly see the influence from the '99 Charger concept.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Only thing that bugs me is the way the top character line coming out of the fender vent has a kink. I think it'd make more sense if it went straight back.

Not bad at all.

On another note, I never understood why so many people loved the concept and thought it was better than what we have now. It's swoopy and all but it's very 90's in design and the nose is kinda droopy and the proportions aren't the greatest. Plus to me it looks a bit awkward from some angles (front 3/4 especially). I do like it, and it had a better interior than what we got but overall I still prefer the LX Charger.

The proportions of this design are quite similar to the current Charger, I just borrowed the "classic" chrysler body style from the concept (early 70's style)...the greenhouse is much larger, the shoulder lines higher & front more straight, theroretically this could be built off a current Charger platform. That was my idea anyway !!..???

THX !!

EDIT : SUPER BEE 2 THE BOO 2 DA BAH ;

To me, a low, swoopy, aerodynamic car looks far sportier than any tall, broad-faced musclecar. I understand the chopped-roof look that the Charger, Challenger and Camaro go for, but having a higher beltline to reduce the greenhouse height just makes the car look chunky and clumsy, in my opinion. "Aero" styling may have been a staple of the '80s and '90s, but I think it's a far more modern look than many current cars have.

I'm starting to get tired of retro styling anyway.

Sorry MDM, I don't think either of those chops looks as good as your original drawing. The notch in the rear window of the first is very strange, and the second one doesn't have as nice a stance.

Pretty cool execution, but the proportions are chunky. Thin up that A-pillar! Some elements of it are descent though.

Yeah translating the drawing into a production car "chop" does make it more "boxy" but thats more a function of the current platform, perhaps if I use a longer lower car as a base pix, then the drawing may have more elements delivered into the chop that way....hmmmm.
