Yes, it's gr8, you may be a winner if you finish it. Maybe make it more agressive.

Wow, nice and clean... love the style. <p>The car itself puts the Uplander to shame, to be sure.

It's not really a van, like a minivan, to me despite the sliding doors. Also, it doesn't have 3 rows of seating; the Borrego would only seat 5 if by some miracle from God it went into regular production. (Also, for those who want more people along for the ride, it would have a seating option like the new Mazda 5.) Actually, I see this more of a vehicle that blends attributes from the Maxx and the Uplander, and the wrapper is more sportier and stylish than either. That was the vision from the begining. Also, its a viable vehicle for the Chevy line. It would tackle the Mazda 5, Nissan Quest and Murano, and Mitsubishi Endeavor and do it in style. The "vision" puts this car is a class of its own, way up there in the clouds.<p>
