Design software

I'm wanting to put ideas I have for a car project on paper. There are software rpograms people use to design houses that give three dimensional views and such. Is there any "user friendly" programs out there that would do the same thing with car designs?

I don't know how user friendly it is, but I have messed around with a free software program you can download free from the net, called rhino 3d. I still don't know what a lot of the features do. Its fully functioning, and doesn't expire, but you only get 25 saves unless you buy it. Once you have designed your car, it will render it in 3d, and you can pan in and out, left and right, and zoom in and out to find the rendering you want. To save your rendering, just cut and paste the rendering in another program to save it. Here is a partial gto I was starting to work on, but never got around to cleaning it up and adding details and finishing. I still ain't real good at it, but you do get a help manual to explain what various things do.
