<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/1zhelp.gif" BORDER="0"> Please vote for the Pontiac. I already did a chop of the Daihatsu Materia (sister model of the Scion)....

Pontiac...the Scion has too many reflections imo.

02-13-2007, 02:47 PM
Think it's pretty clear that the Pontiac won that one! :P<p>Good luck everyone.

Hm, the link doesn't take you to the high-res version of the picture. It can be found here: <A HREF="http://www.netcarshow.com/pontiac/2008-g8_gt_show_car/1600x1200/wallpaper_01.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.netcarshow.com/pont...1.htm</A>

someone should stretch this and give it a silver mesh grille and dub it the pontiac G10 (calais).

02-14-2007, 02:18 PM
galv, your chops are awesome. You have stunning ideasm and your work is top notch.

02-15-2007, 01:46 AM
Very clean.<p>One question: what happened at the top of the doors?<p>\P

02-15-2007, 02:17 PM

i started a GTO... did about 60% then scrapped it.

Hi everyone, i'm back into photoshopping and i want to enter this...<p>I think it's more of an impression chop.<p>2008 Opel/Vauxhall Vectra<p><br><IMG SRC="http://img180.imageshack.us/img180/4148/enthusiast2006finalentrgz3.jpg" BORDER="0">

02-18-2007, 12:04 AM
it looks like a mazda with that grill

02-18-2007, 12:14 AM
Now i look at it... i think your right StevenZoz. I don't think this was the ideal car to make into an opel. It would probably look a lot better as a mazda. Oh well, it's too late now to change my entry to a mazda. Although for some reason, to me vectra's look a bit like mazda's anyway. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

Long time no entry. In fairness, I had done this beforehand, but I may as well try my luck.<p> <IMG SRC="http://img186.imageshack.us/img186/765/pontiacg8wagongb0.jpg" BORDER="0">

enthusiast2006, why do you think, that Opel Vectra D will be base on Zeta-platform, as Pontiac G8 ?<br>G6 - Vectra (Epsilon 2)<br>G8 - Omega (Zeta)<br>

Im suprised at how well the acadia headlights fit the G8! nice work.

An entirely predictable entry and name, I know, but I guess someone had to do it. I was really busy this week so this is not the most intensive chop but it's still my second after a long dry spell so any comments + criticisms would be appreciated!<p> <IMG SRC="http://img92.imageshack.us/img92/60/pontiaccolorcopyme8.jpg" BORDER="0">

I like it, but i would have called it the 2009 Vibe Or G8 Maxx

Interiors are definitely the one thing I need to work at because I have no idea how to do them :/ I really like, for example, how you've made the interior of your entry look pillarless, even through the windshield. How do you match it like that? <p>I really wanted to make this car look upscale compared to the sporty G8 so I purposely used a darker color to really punch out the details and highlights. I think the one detail that really sets this one apart personally are the de-blacked-out headlamps :P

02-24-2007, 10:20 PM
I'd join in but my monstrosity is not finished and is long ways off befor being done.

02-25-2007, 07:57 AM
In that case I'll call this done and collect the entries.

I haven't visited CSS in a while for personal reasons and my blog updates. Well, what a fantastic competition this time.<p>4- galv- Not much changes have been made, but you have made the G8 look elegant, yet sporty, yet gorgeous, without losing one bit of the G8's sport DNA. I'd get that anyday. I'm impressed.<br>3- Pintum- I never thought of a GMC sedan, especially based on the G8. But, you combined the two very different companies into one harmonious design and it's great.<br>2- knihc2008- Good ol' knihc2008 with yet another striking design. Extremely clean and not a flaw anywhere in sight. Colour is not my taste, but that's something you can't really do. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>1- Twiznoy- A 4-door Chevelle? Impala sounds more appropriate for this. Apart from the name, it's magnificent right to the Camaro wheels. Nice choice of colours too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

4-TheophilusChin - Nice 'euro-style' hatch. A lot of chopping in this shop.<br>3-Magellan<br>2-Galv<br>1-Mucus<p>\P

02-27-2007, 01:35 AM
3 - mucus. Nice, clean design. A probable G8 coupe as well.<br>3 - magellan. Another probably G8 coupe. I love the larger front grilles.<br>2 - Melian: A nice tuning version. Cleanly done.<br>2 - sfor56: crazy front that surprisingly works. Good job.<br><BR><BR>
