Chevy's new Cruze, in artandcolour's pillarless coupe bodystyle. I was going to go back and touch-up all three of these chops, dating back about 18 months, but I just never seem to find the time. Plus, I'd rather just do new chops when I have the time to play. So enjoy these today, lol!
I think the fugly Dodge Avenger would look best as a smaller Magnum sport wagon. I think it almost looks like a natural, so much so that I have to wonder if they made a sport wagon first, but for marketing reasons only produced the sedan.
Lexus CS250—How about a small hybrid from Toyota/Lexus that doesn't look like it's a game piece for New Monopoly? This was obviously a Corolla to start with, but I lowered and widened it, gave it much more classic details, and didn't try to put 25lbs of design into a 5lb grille shell. Sometimes a grille is only a grille.
From the SHOULD NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY file:
A Dodge Avenger sedan chop that didn't exactly cure the original's ills, lol. I tried to make the Avenger's existing odd rear door window shape work more with the overall roofline by adding a wraparound rear window. Then I tried to make the rear taillights work with the new rear window by making them full-width, an old Dodge Charger trick from the '60s. I lowered the car on it's suspension, added quad exhaust and even added a couple of smoked glass 'windows' in the tailgate to make reversing easier. With the proliferation of rearview cameras now, this probably wouldn't be necessary.
