For some reason, I've been in a Pontiac mood this afternoon. I just finished the Vibe GT chop, above, started last year when Pontiac was still a living/breathing/kicking GM division. Oh well! I "hid" the rear door handles in the window frame, a la Nissan and Alfa-Romeo, enlarged the rear window, lowered the roof, upgraded the wheels and tires (from a Dacia concept vehicle), and generally cleaned up the body lines.
This is my Safari version of the late, lamented, G8 sport sedan. I used the Australian Holden wagon as the base, but lengthened the rear overhang by approximately six inches for more cargo room. Safari was a long-used name for Pontiac's wagon offerings.
The metal-roofed sedan version of the Solstice roadster, the Winter Solstice, lol. I was sort of shocked when I finished this. It wasn't nearly as awkward looking as I thought it would be.
Another version of the Toyota/Pontiac Vibe hatchback. I added a set of fender vents to this version, extending into the front doors, and totally deleted the rear door handles. The doors would be accessed via key fob only, powered open and closed "suicide" style.
A four door "coupe" for GM's Excitement Division, the Ventura, another classic Pontiac name from the past. Again, I added fender vents, but cleanly incorporated them into the hood's side edge. I also added a chrome molding to the sides, "hiding" the door handles in the process, another classic styling touch used through the years. The "arrowhead" Pontiac logo on the side, intersecting the chrome upper body molding, would be a European-type side marker light. Pontiac has a history of backlit logos, hood ornaments and rear lettering, so this Pontiac side marker light would have been appropriate.
Lastly, one of my favorite chops of all time, my New Aztek makes its third appearance in my blog, lol. I mashed up a new Acura ZDX with original Aztek styling cues, such as the grille/hoodscoops, triple side strakes, tripe-spoked wheels and fender bulges complete with body cladding. Pontiac often featured flashy/odd styling for its specialty cars, the TranSport and original Aztek come to mind, so I think they might have jumped on the 'Sports Activity Coupe" bandwagon, a la the ZDX and X6.
