*there is actually a slight retro touch on this car... well two of them... but they flow so well with the modern design that only 67-68 firebird fans will notice them at all anyway...

That's cute. Is it a Kappa hardtop? I like the retro grille and hood scoops.

Very TVRish. That was the complaint when Top Gear first looked at the Solstice.

But I think it's a good thing. In my ideal Pontiac lineup I merged the Solstice with the Firebird, calling the Solstice Coupe the Solstice Firebird.

Heh... it's nice. A little blobby and random as far as design, but it looks alright. A little refinement here and there could go a long way as far as improving it.

The Alfa 8C is a sexy b!tch and your overall design in fantastic.

I think the side of the car, beign plainer than even a Solstice is

just too bland but the theme, hardtop greenhouse & modern

excecution of heretige cues is fantastic.

YEP, I also think this is one of your better designs ...simple and effective, has a solstice groove in it, yet stepped up to a Firebird feel.

THIS IS THE DIRECTION A NEW FIREBIRD SHOULD GO IN.... not a Camaro clone PLEASE !!!...Pontiac needs to fight off the imports (acura integra, mitsu eclipse, tyo celica )...and this type of car would do it !!!

Good work man, for real excellent ideation on this !

...and XP715 ...thats the BEST sig i have seen yet....kickin ...rollin deep on 26 "

LMAO ! :ohyeah:
