Default Contest 16 - The new 50s

So, what does this title mean? It means that you have got 2 weeks (ending November 23) to create a modern 1950s era car. This means alot of chrome, big fins, fat whitewall tires and probably some tow-tone paintjob. Go wild!

How about a new Thunderbird that pays homage to the '55 without looking like a cross between a Camry and a 50s Corvette (last Tbird)?

It's been almost one week already. Is anyone making an entry to this?

ACcartoons: SOrry, to me it doesn't seem very realistic

Early 50s cars were barely updated versions of the cash starved 40's. But by the late 50s cars had developed tremendous confidence about their design.

Neither did the late 50's cars look starved which is another issue I have with your first try.

C'mon raise it, you can do it!

The Belair reminds me that they used to do ghastly color combinations for two-tones. Coral, turquoise, sea foam green. Yikes. The Chrydillac, I think, better captures the wretched excess of the time when American manufacturers went to "fin land". I was kind of hoping Casey would have thrown in.

Default DeSoto from previous contest

I didn't enter this, because I entered it in that previous contest for reviving a discontinued brand... but thought you might enjoy it in this context...
