Peugeot 407 Coupe. I think the variety of different chops will be greater than in the Pontiac.

407 because the G8 is like the Commodores ugly brother.

Ooh. I like that! The grille/lamps are perhaps a bit too big for the rest of the car, but the idea is spot on.

Thanks JB :D Interestingly, originally I had the entire grille/headlights arrangement much smaller and only enlarged it because I thought it looked odd. Still, I'll be the first to admit that there is a sense of perspective and proportion that has always eluded me in Ps :P

Malaysia should be GMT +7, same timezone as Thailand, and one hour closer to GMT from Hong Kong, which is +8. Assuming there is no daylight saving or whatever though.

I was away so I wasnt able to enter this comp, sadly I was a bit disapointed with this comp when I saw the entries.

DoMiNo - 5 Your entry was realy good, I love the way it looks, I'll have one in black please.:P

ACcartoons -1 Sorry Ac but it looks very rough around the edges, and the quality is a bit off.

mario_128 -2 I would have given you more points but what ever effect you have added to the image it makes it look scrappy,I'd like to see the car without the effect if possible?

phantomex - 3, I dont think the G8 suits the Cadillac grill.

TheophilusChin -3 A big dacia, now that would be cool if Renault/Dacia decided to make it.

blackstripe -3 Sorry but something isnt right about a G8 drift car.

speedfreak_77 -3 The next Monaro maybe?

Porsche-Power -4 Looks very good!.

S2- 1 The chunky looks of the original car dont suite a car of that size in my opinion.

Iqo' - 2 It doesnt realy look different because it just looks like a variant of the G8 ST.

DoMiNo - 4 | Best Chevy Caprice chop I've seen (and believe me, I've seen loads.)
mario_128 - 2 | Nice recolouring but the Volt grill and lights really don't suit it.
phantomex - 4 | Excellent chop although you could have used some more Cadillac styling touches towards the rear portion of the car.
TheophilusChin - 3 | Bad idea, very good chop.
blackstripe - 5 | I can't fault it. By far the best chop this time.
speedfreak_77 - 4 | An example of how only a few changes can make the car appear much more sporting.
Porsche-Power - 5 | Very, VERY good. i'm amazed at your determination to make every car featured in the photoshop contests into a big SUV.
S2 - 3 | Good chop but it doesn't hit the mark from a design perspective.
Iqo' - 2 | Another 'ute? Still quite good but the rear window is dodgy and the idea is getting old fast.

Yeah it should be but Malaysia and Thailand have different timezones. But it isn't look at this picture http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e7/Timezones2008.png. I knew it because we were there on vacation a few years ago.

My bad I assumed Thailand and Malaysia were in the same timezone since Malaysia was directly below and attached to the same bit of land.


DoMiNo - 5 - Love it!! Wheels work great, too. The size of the front make the rest of the car look small but that isn't necessarily a bad thing (:

ACcartoons - 3 - Like the idea and what you did to the headlamps, but... what happened?

mario_128 - 2 - Perhaps you should have tried the parts from the production Volt - it may have helped with the proportions. Whats with the finish?

phantomex - 4 - I can't help but think that might work, except the headlamps are too rounded compared the Cadillac grill, and the way the grill was implemented here gives the car a rather silly grin.

TheophilusChin - 4 - Aggressive Dacia you got there.

speedfreak_77 - 5 - Really clean, I like it. Love the wheels, but not so much the Audi-esque
lights. The subtle background and angle change does wonders, too.

Porsche-Power - 4 - Really nice chop - I pondered that idea but couldn't get it to work, and you make it work really well. Most of the front tire seems to have gone missing though.

S2 - 3 - Quality is decent but proportions seem very awkward. The aggressive look doesn't work at all here.

Iqo' - 1 - Looks like a bad version of what was going to be the G8 ST, sorry. Taller front fascia worked on the Insignia, but is awkward here. Same problem with the rear window - its a bit rough, and that bar shouldn't be there. Sorry to be so harsh on this one, but this (http://www.thetorquereport.com/2010_g8_sport_truck9.jpg) shows how it should be done.

4 - TheophilusChin Nice clean work and I like the idea. Creative, but I would've liked to have seen more.
3 - blackstripe A bit different which is always nice. I also didn't know you were from Thailand!
4 - speedfreak_77 Looks nice, but nothing really different from the norm.
5 - Porsche-Power Very creative and I really like it. You made it into an SUV and an estate, nice work.
1 - S2 I like the new front end but the rest sits kind of awkwardly in my eyes.
2 - Iqo' Again an improvement but I'd like to see something apart from a pickup with PsC6.

DoMiNo-4-Nice Shop! But why only the front and the wheels changed? The front and the rest of the car aren't really match.
ACcartoons-2-Why the filter. It look not really great but 2 point.
mario_128-2- Again a filter and only and only the front.
phantomex-3-Nice caddy version. And a coupe.
TheophilusChin-4-Nice quality and good idea.
blackstripe-3-Nice tune! Good quality.
speedfreak_77-4-Good shop! Nice coupe! Good quality
S2-3-Reasonable idea and not really much done but good quality
Iqo'-3-There is already a Pickup G8 and the back window isn't good.

DoMiNo
07-24-2009, 09:59 PM
2 - ACcartoons - The concept is there, but the execution leaves something to be desired. I feel like the filter was applied to hide mistakes; you shouldn't need to do that. The effect, instead, is to make the car almost too dark to discern any detail.
2 - mario_128 - Similar feelings about the filter, which is distracting. Which is a shame, because like AC's chop, I feel like this had tremendous potential.
3 - phantomex - Clean chop and good work on the coupe conversion. It's the lights and the hood scoops that really throw things off, IMO. Had you changed those this would have been fantastic.
4 - TheophilusChin - Top quality chop, but could have been a more exciting vehicle :P Still, your realism amazes.
3 - blackstripe - nice tune, with some very cool details, but could have been a bit cleaner (not that I'm one to talk, obviously).
5 - speedfreak_77 - Sex.
5 - Porsche-Power - Very ambitious chop and pretty clean, to boot. Perhaps the most creative.
3 - S2 - has a bit of a toy look, to it; I see what you were going for, but the door looks too short and the surfacing around the rocker area is confusing.
2 - Iqo' - puzzling choice, since (as noted above) there is already a G8 truck; that said, your chops are getting better.
