2008 GTO

A couple of tweaks:

1) get rid of the innermost pair of headlights.

2) make the foglights down below a little smaller.

3) the "beak" probably shouldn't protrude into the lower air intake.

4) something's not quite right about that beltline. (I dunno if the source pic is that way or not...it could be why I by and large didn't like the 1999 GTO Concept)

5) looks like you left one of the "strakes" on the driver's side of the front bumper.

All in all, I think you improved a lot on the source car, though.

i agree with z28...get the beak out of the lower intake... also...while the hood tach is a nice retro touch... i dont expect to ever see one again... so get rid of it... it also looks kind of strange... again agreein with z28...lose the innermost headlight... other than that maybe shorten the whole lower fascia portion... it looks too tall compared to the rest of the car... and then its good... nice idea... happy to see someone taking a shot at it... ill probably be drawing one sumtime soon anyway...

You know what?

Honestly?

I love it. Extreme? yes. Radical? yes. Retro? yes. But it's pretty evokative of the originals and yet futuristic at the same time while being a herdtop. :D

Well, I'll just say that if you chopped out the triangle between the grills, I'd FINALLY like this concept.

Hey Cman,...nice to see ya here. Did you do that from the '99 GTO pix from GM?

it is the same coloring, just wondering. I would post my version of a new GTO that I did, but would most likey get raked over the coals for it..LOL. I used the Camaro concept car (top veiw) as a base. It is "out there". I like yours alot, it is tough looking, & reminds me a bit of the older cars too. Nice work.

OH.WHAT THE HECK...here's mine just for fun;

I did in orange too as well as this Gold one !...LOL.It is not as good as yours at all but it is a bigger older style GTO thing. Your good.

detroitmetal...thats actually not too bad.... only have two complaints... i can see you were goin for the 3 prong front end thing... which is cool... but the bottom of the fender looks warped... and also... GTO was never a fastback... that roofline is all wrong for a goat... widening the c pillar is fine but it shouldnt touch the back of the car... otherwise great idea

With some refinement, Mr Detroit Metal, that could be right on target.

04monteintimidator:

Yes indeed I dolove it, the update is an improvement too. :) Looking forward to seeing your concept. Will it be a Detomasso this time?

MRDETROITMETAL:

Great concept... there's a bit of Shelby Cobra Daytona in the tail/rear quarters. Not sure weather that works for a GTO but it's a cool look. :D
