I see a little neon in that.
Took parts from the Viper actually because the next Charger is rumored to be a lot sleeker looking.
Now that you mention that I see it now.
Another Grand Cherokee update idea. Really wanted to emphasize the capability by making the square shoulders more pronounced. Moved the rear bumper up to make it look a little bit more stout and incorporated a couple cues from the Compass.
Do you have the stock photo for this that you could post as well for comparison?
Of course. (netcarshow is where I get nearly all of my pictures)
I like the new Compass taillights on the GC and the curvature of the rear window corners. +1
Could you beef up the rear fender flare the same as the front a bit?
Tried to do that in the belt line although I do realize it looks sort of out of proportion.
I think some people disliked the sloping down roof line in the back causing the back window to be so small. As a cruiser wagon it looks good, but with more side glass, that's why I think one reason the Journey sells better. Ya Ya they call it a cross over. It's a station wagon to me.
I wish the magnum was offered with an optional raised rear roof similar to the Vista cruiser.
New Grand Cherokee based on Yuntu styling.
Couldn't get picture to insert so you'll have to use the link. Will try again tomorrow when I have more time.
Low res - use the link above for higher quality.
Another retro request: I've been reading that the '34 to '36 Airflow models were rejected by new car buyers mostly because they were ugly. The main problem to me is that the headlights are too close together. I wonder how the car would look if the lights were moved to the fenders.
I agree, that would probably look better. I'll work on it.
Some pics in this article:
DeSoto and Chrysler Airflow car (at http://www.allpar.com/cars/airflow.html )
And how one of its European contemporaries looked:

Note the central headlight, which moved with the steering wheel; this was more than 10 years before the Tucker. Also, the dorsal fin in back, predating Harley Earl's tail fins, again by more than 10 years. Another car ahead of its time.
Here it is (finally). Not sure who the picture belongs to, it was on Google.
It's an improvement. Their placement on the hood makes them look scrunched together. On the fenders, they'd have to be adjusted to aim straight ahead, not angled up in the air. This would probably involve making them stick out a bit, like they did on the Pierce Arrow and the Tatra 77A, and I don't think that would look better on the Airflow. Do the lights on the fenders make the car look lower, or was it customized?
I have no idea if it was custom or not. Just found a picture on Google. I don't know much about these older cars.
Compared to pics of other Airflows, it looks a few inches lower. Maybe the tires are smaller than original. I like the effect.
