I'm stuck on the headlights and grill, but so far here it is:

I doubt I'll finish it because it'll be too time consuming, and it's not innovative enough to put in my portfolio for college. I hope you like!

It was done in photoshop with my sketch as an underlay:

btw I just noticed you guys are featuring work done by Dick Nesbitt, which is awesome! I aspire to be like him one day, and am also looking forward to going to Art Center soon!

The overall rendering & esp. the reflections on the side are great!
only place I'm confused is the front fender/beltline/upper wheelarch area -
even looking at the sketch, I'm not sure how the metal is supposed to flow.

suggestions for the design
maybe have no headlites? no seriously, at least try one without any?
- between LED's, sliding/flipping panels-louvres, and liquid crystal lenses & translucent paint,
I think highline style leaders might start using now-you-see-it/now-you-don't "purifying" simplifications. (that was a mouthful!)
maybe use your 2nd corvair sketch (http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f4/mountdoug/Picture5-4.png) as a starting point? (except for the HLs ;))
looks like it 'wants' to be a higher brand & I think it brings more new directions while this one is more synthesizing existing styles.
esp. like the Corvair's sharp zigzag surface changes on the upper rear quarter &
the side-window 'plane' extending into the sheetmetal &
how it continues to the front to wrap around the grille (nice wedge!).

hope that made sense.

yes, we're very fortunate that Mr. Nesbitt has joined the forum -
in case you missed it, he's also agreed to help judge a design contest (when we get it going).
