    So my idea is to model a mid-seventies personal luxury car as it is in 2009, after several decades of abuse and occasional hit-and-run accident.
    No progress yet, but I'm working on it. ;)

    P.S.: Here's a link for those who have never heard about this car.

    Thank you guys :) Updates will follow in a day or two.

    @schaefft: it's a free model downloaded from here (the title is wrong of course, it's not a Buick).

    nice to see this one, so few in prime condition now so your model will be like most survivors of this car.

    Thanks!
    Here's more. Still a lot of proportional inaccuracies, but I'm digging for more.
    Also, the wheels will be replaced with stock rusty steel alloys.

    Looks like the trunk needs a sharper crease. Also I'm not quite sure about the roof; the way the strip is flowing.

    Looking good though, I really like it 8)
