all the parts for the cabin are from different cars:
black thing on whindshield-corvette
rollbar thing- porsche 911 targa
guy driving and drivers seat- mazda MX5
passenger seat- custom made (all 'custom-made' are my me, just so we're clear)
passenger side door/armrest thing- custom made


other mods:
rear 'widebody'
brighter logos on side
airbrushed-off side markers, and water-shooting things on hood, and antenna on roof
coupe conversion(obviously)
-that should be about it



comments/suggestions welcome

Pretty clean, but why not just call it an Eldorado?

In the past a 2dr Seville WAS an Eldorado. The GTO was never a 2dr Grand Prix. As a matter of fact when those tow cars coexisted in the past they were BOTH 2dr only. The chop is cool but I'd rather have a fixed roof Eldorado, leave the Targa thing to Porsche & Vette.

Awesome chop, but the door's a little short. Why not just call it Eldorado?

It wouldn't be an "STS coupe," but an STC (or a 2-door STS, since there are 2-door sedans, and it's upright enough). In any case, Eldorado was always Caddy's most special 2-door, and that there is what it obviously is in the minds of Caddy fans.

And of a 2-door GP wouldn't be called a GTO, because the twain don't meet in Pontiac's hierarchy...GP was always a bigger car, no matter how many doors it had.

I love targa tops myself by the way. There definitely should be more in this world.

Why not ETC (Eldorado Touring Coupe) while were at it? Caddy used to have it anyways.

Targas can be applied to front engine vehicles as well. Thus most Corvettes are Targas. Targas of the past include the Supra Targa (Mks III and IV) and the NSX-T.

Cool, but isn't the term "targa" usually used in reference to mid/rear engined cars?

Nope, that's simply a type of roof (The front engine Supra had one). Targa roofs don't have the bar in the middle like the old T-tops GM was known for.
