Firebird Convertible

Sudden spike in my mind when being bored at work:

Call it a blend between the 1st, 3rd and 4th gen Firebirds.

HUD is standard, as it's the tach. It's a modern recreation of the hood mounted tachs existing on early Firebirds.

It'll be based on a widened Camaro platform (Pontiac WideTrack)

oooo nice i dunno about that lump in the hood tho... is that a cowl induction of some sort?it looks kinda weird... maybe lower it a bit? and also... on the 3/4 view... what is goin on at the bottom of the a pillar? it looks the side window goes down below the hood line... and that the sideview is attached to the window... the interior is real nice and i like how you harked back to the old school hood tachs with the hud tach... thats a nice touch... definitely not alot of design problems... just the standard things that happen when you draw stuff quickly at work and/or school... good job... i like it alot

3rd gens had those ones that were offset to the drivers side and then the early 4th gens had the reverse scoup things that went in instead of protruding out and then the 4.5 gens had the horse nostril style hood scoops

nope... 4th gen had ram air and i could be wrong but i think the other 3 gens all had shakers... and i just realized... how is a cowl induction goin to seperate it from the camaro? the camaro has a cowl induction... didnt you notice the lump in the middle of its hood?

actually the design you have is very well differentiated... you dont really need to change anything designwise to make it look less like a camaro... bcuz it doesnt really look like a camaro as is

Cool.

One gripe however. Lower grille is too "1997 Grand Prix SE sedan"

I like the full-on front view. I'd like to see Pontiac use a nose similar to this again.

Oh, and one more thing I forgot to mention. My drawing skills aren't up there, the grilles are actually a hexagonal mesh, something like what's on the Vibe and G6 right now.
