I did this wondering how it would look like a 2005 Opala, that was a brazilian Opel Rekord Coupe from de 60s / 70s. <br> <br>Original<br><IMG SRC="http://img51.exs.cx/img51/483/opalassorig7py.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>"2005 Opala SS"<br><IMG SRC="http://img133.exs.cx/img133/1927/opalass1dn.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>

I think you should add a little bevel to the SS and the taillights. Otherwise I love it

Thats cool, I like it!<p>I would use some different rear lights (maybe the Nissan concept, that I dont know the name of) but besides that, its clean and I like it!

Rear reminds me a lot of Mustang except lights are oval.<br>AFT clean and realistic

I like it, although IMO i would pull some arches out to the rear. I really like the silver strip at the rear nice sprty touch, brings the rear into the sides. I like the rear lights although they seem to be missing something I can think what. Well done mate, its clean and well brushed <p>regards Hollc004

nice clean chop, i like the first lights better than the ones u just put on, but i hope u don't mind i'm just gonna fix the rear lights for you to what i think would look a little better.

Actually, that badge was suposed to be the fuel cap. I like what you did, but then it wouldn´t ressemble too much like the original

You did a really good job.. it's just that i don't like the back lights... they just look funny, but it's not your fault.. i really think it's the shat

I likes it. The retto back and rear maek this a good car to compete with the 2005 Mustang. I'm interested to see how a convertible would fair.

Cool. Would be good as a concept. I really likes it. The first version, I think, is the best.
