But, most Chevelle concepts are kind of the same old, same old; picking out and taking cues from the now legendary '70 SS396/454 models. Well, I did the same here by picking out cues from the '69 model, which is to me a little more elegant and muscular than the '70s version. So I tried to make the '69 model more modern.<p>Also, I've decided that this car will lay down the foundation for my future concepts for Chevy. They'll all have dual headlights, like many early Chevys, and the crossbar. It's time a little more heritage gets thrown in GM's mainstream brand.

Looks great...though I think it could look even better with a Pontiac front end.

I like it, design-wise. It's got a nice muscle car look to it, pretty mean. <p>But the car as a whole looks kind of low and long... like it's been streeeetched out. The wheelbase is too long, the roof's a little low, and the left side of the windshield extends too far, IMO. <p>But it's such a nice, clean sketch, and your ideas are always really fresh! I wish they'd build something like this!

I agree with domino.<br>The back somehow reminds me of the Ferrari Testarossa. It looks fairly long.<br>But I LIKE that drawin.<br>PROPS DUDE!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0">

Kakairo: Heh, if you want to know a funny fact, Ponitac did just that with the Chevelle in '69. They slapped on the ol' dual ports and some rear side skirts and called it the Beaumont. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/1orglaugh.gif" BORDER="0">
