New Monte Carlo

I used the NASCAR Car Of Tomarrow template to design this as a road car.

Here is a revision on the front end design... ?

Beware of excessive overhangs.

Speaking in general, work on your proportions (and sense of perspective).

Excluding color, I would probably spend an hour drawing something of similar quality, and then spend hours and hours fine tuning all the proportions until the car looks completely different. For starters, move the front wheel down more on the car so that the ground clearance is the same at the front as it is in the back (unless the car tilts downward on purpose).

Yes ,,, it does tilt downwards ON PURPOSE....this was designed according to the body template established by NASCAR for the 07 season, what they call THE CAR OF TOMMAROW ...???

I figured this way a "stock car" would actually have a resemblence to the ACTUAL production car, as this is a BIG GRIPE with all the auto manufactures.

GM has even threatened to pull OUT of NASCAR alltogether !!!!

No factory support, no sponsors, no cars nothing !

.......NO GM = NO NASCAR ~ !!!!!! - according to Jack Roush !!!!, he said GM could Kill NASCAR if they pull out ? Toyo coming in will not help, as they will be losers for years, and JR was clear to make sure that happens too !...lol.


Here are some comments from DRIVERS on the car of tomarrow testing...

CONCORD, N.C. -- For the second straight day, drivers participating in NASCAR's Car of Tomorrow test at Lowe's Motor Speedway were impressed with how the new car handled and maneuvered on the race track.

Teams from Hendrick Motorsports (Brian Vickers), Richard Childress Racing (Jeff Burton), DEI (Dale Earnhardt, Jr.), Evernham Motorsports (Scott Riggs), Joe Gibbs Racing (Denny Hamlin), Chip Ganassi (Casey Mears), and MB2 Motorsports (Joe Nemechek) participated in Wednesday's test.

"This car drives and handles pretty well," Riggs said. "The rear wing is going to be a big help. It gives you a lot of adjustability. We made some adjustments with the wing today that allowed us to run a lot better than yesterday.

"This was the first time I had driven this car but now we have some good, solid fundamentals to take away from this test and take to the next one later this summer at Michigan."

Despite having the morning session pushed back due to a thunderstorm that passed through the area, the drivers spent more than three hours on the track in the afternoon, running solo and then also running three 10-lap group runs.

Jeff Burton said he wasn't that surprised that the new car handled so well at this test.

"We've put a lot of time and effort into this new car, so we kind of expected it to run well," Burton said. "For the first time running the wing at a big track like this, I'd say it was a successful test."

Nextel Cup Series Director John Darby says that this two-day session at Lowe's should provide NASCAR with some valuable information to prepare for the next scheduled test Aug. 21 at Michigan International Speedway.

"We made some significant gains over the past two days," Darby said. "The wing is an effective adjustable part that can be used to the driver's advantage. We have some things to work on, but for the most part, they are minor things.

"Even though we tested on a hot race track (air temperature in the mid-90s) with hard tires, the drivers were able to achieve a comfort level and give us a lot of positive feedback heading into our next test."

I'm getting more of a "Scion tC had sex with an Audi A6" vibe.

The Monte Carlo does not HAVE to be super retro but this

does not have ANY styling cues from the classic Monte Carlos

of the past. Well, the C-pillar works, looks a bit 1970.
