I've liked some of your more recent work... but not this so much. Hmm... constructive feedback...

- the silver stripe on the side looks flat, like it's just a big decal. Needs to be a body line, or it's gotta go, IMO.

- has kind of a generic, blobby look to it overall, needs more character lines

I can see you incorporated many retro touches, good

effort. Seems a litte awkward though with that sweep

spear since the car is so blocky and does not really

resemble a '57 Ford in any other way.

The rest of the car is kind of '60-'66 -ish so why not

go with that theme and give it a more '60s-look side

trim/chrome treatment & save the sweep-spear for a

'57-retro Crown Vic.

Looks like a bathtub.

And fender skirts are nothing more than a tacky thing of the past. They're not coming back.

Not feeling it...looks kinda like a blue brick...too boxy and many elements of the fascia are just floating there...no integration to the rest of the car.

I think it's 109k. It definitely cool, but certainly is in a different league than the Volt will be. The Volt will be for average people to be able to afford, and that's what makes it so amazing.

I don't know what that has to do with my post, but as I was saying, fender skirts are dead. They're tacky, and unless Chrysler resurrects them (I wouldn't put it past them after they resurrected an entire design 30+ years after it debuted), I doubt they'll make a comeback.

IDK, fender skirts DO have an aerodynamic purpose,...so perhaps they do have a comeback chance.

DF, yeah, the Volt is amazing no doubt as a "family car" & if they do get a govt credit deal bringing the price down to 20 -25 k, they will sell a s**tload of those cars worldwide.
