Good, i like the effect you have put on this...<br>But im not sure about the back wheel; looks good but slightly off perspective...<br>Maybe a bit more emphasis on the VW grill.<p>Very good entry, and very good rendering...

*PHEW* I'm dead tired of this. I decided to go with a total drastic redesign, because I'm pretty sure you all know how much I hate retro designs. This is no retro design but it has all the Karmann Ghia design cues, espcially the side rise. Rear engined, the rear window dips lower than the pillars making a flying-buttress design and allows air in; same goes for the side windows. I realize I've made it look more supercar than it's supposed to but whatever, I designed this when I was angry at something so it sorta just came through :P<p>Okay, here we go.

Thats good, nice see it resembeling the old car...<br>although, i guess it would be better to do a final design, ie. with more detail and so, but this is just fine... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
