<b>Objective</b><p>Design an aggressively styled minivan designed to offer truly enjoyable, spirited driving experience. Intent is to appeal to active lifestyle (like everything else) and young families -- people who don't want a minivan but know it is the right tool for the job. These are people who typically commute alone or with a child on board, and who couldn't care less about seating for eight.<p>Other Specifications and Details: Any brand name real or your own.<p><A HREF="http://www.carspyshots.net/zerothread?id=13879" TARGET="_blank">Rules please read before submitting</A><p>Please post your designs here. You have one week until Sunday the 27th of Febuary.<p><br><i>Modified by Ascariss at 3:10 PM 2/13/2005</i><BR><BR>

Hey, I'll enter this for the fun of it. I'm already messing around with a few ideas.<p>Here's some teaser info:<br>-It'll be a Chevy<br>-The design will take cues from SUVs, concepts, and sport sedans.<br>-It'll use the face seen on the current Uplander and upcoming Tahoe.<br>-Some design inspiration will come from the Equinox; plus, the designs of comparable vehicles like Mazda 5, Honda Oddesy, etc.<p>I've really not decied if I am going to draw conventional doors or sliding doors. What do you think?

Wow guys... this contest is a heated one. <p>testarossa7: I've said it before... I love your style. It's just about professional quality. That said, the design itself is a little early-mid 90's for me. Reminds me a bit of the first-gen Oldsmobile Silhouette, or something.<p><br>Whipster: one of the most creative designs in the contest... looks awesome (and very Opel!), and the interior is over-the-top but very cool! One of your best I think!<p><br>Guy: You're really getting the hang of things. Terrific sketch, and wild rims, but it's a little "boy racer" for me, and it seems more of a hatchback than a van... though that may well have been your intent. <p><br>anorexorcist: I loved the design from the moment you previewed it in the other forum; it's very clean, very sophisticated... but somehow it seems like it looked better before the detail, like maybe it lost something? It's probably just me... still an excellent design and fits in very well with the current Chevy range. <p>Keep it up guys! I'm not sure if I'll be able to enter this one; toooooo much schoolwork. <p>
