New small CUV for Buick-revives "Special" nameplate

C H O P — This little Buick was created using a Seat Ibiza estate image. The Seat's swage line is so Buick looking to this American's eyes, it was a natural to turn it into a new Buick Special. I love the woody effect, lol, and have used it here. My idea for 21st century wood trim on cars, would be created with a laser-thin veneer of actual wood, and be incorporated under the clear coats in an almost seamless appearance. I've used brushed aluminum border trim on the top portion of this little Buick. The wood is applied above the swage like Buick did on the glass-roofed '69 Sportwagon, Buick's last version of the Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser.
