Thanks Eric, it's modeled after the popular '57 T-Bird. Here's an outline overlay of a T-Bird I used for proportional comparison.Um, that just doesn't look very good, rear of car is just too long compared to passenger compartment.
Move rear wheel opening back about a foot, then remove about a foot of the door visually so that the side spear flair starts on the rear 1/3 of the door sheetmetal while still maintaining the door opening length, and take about 3-4 more inches out of the roof length(too much wraparound glass showing) and you might have something.
Rear deck lid space needs to end up being about 2/3 the length of the hood/front fender length.
If you can do that, let's see what that would look like. Got to get the "long nose, short rear deck" feel going for it to fit the sporty car mold.
That's my opinion.
Thanks for clarifying Eric, I think I see what you meant now. I could have easily used a '57 Pontiac or Olds version of their wagon as well for this edit and may have still produced similar results in the proportions for this idea. Most people use Adobe Photoshop for their edits like these, but I prefer Corel PaintShop Pro Photo (less expensive). The time it takes to do these depends on your own editing skills, computer capabilities to run the programs at speed (vs click&wait), and any time it takes for you in just staring at it figuring out what to do next and how to accomplish it.Changes I was suggesting were....
Eric, if you're referring to my question about seeing anything else unusual...Thanks for the program notes.
Side trim slight mis-align with door trim at front fender, and it appears that script on the rear quarter says something other than Bel Air, but I can't make it out.
Eric, Here's a typical "shorty" version, which seems more like what you were referring to, but yet that's different than what I had intended in the proportions....move quarter forward 8-12" so that side spear "flair" starts on the rear 1/3 of the door..
