Hmm.. Love the side body sculpting, but I think that would be very well complimented by more of a deck on the rear fenders (a la Camaro) and having the greenhouse narrow in toward the rear (a la Corvette).

Great to see you around and it's a very nice sketch!

Hey Plum, welcome back! You & your work have been sorely missed around here.

I really like your interuptration of the dual-port grille and how it could modernize Pontiac's styling direction. Great job!

Well-done sketch, but I think the styling direction (the front especially) is overall, a little dated.

An idea for a new more aggresive version--I don't think I've posted this here. :smilewide:

Technically, as usual, it's great.

For me, however, the way that split in the grille is executed reminds me of one of the Sunfires; there- it's split aways jumped out at me as not well integrated. One of the last Bonne's did the same thing- the cutline of the hood truncated the Split. I always hated that. The one on the sketch looks like a separate piece too, like it was assembled. I prefer the current Solstice's integrated Split- the body was cast as one and the grilles cut into the form.

I know- sounds petty, but it's an element that always draws my eye.

I would agree if the insert lined up with the facia, but it's inset. I think I prefer it inset like it is, as it adds more detail to draw the eye.

Excellent sketch!
