Chevrolet Celebrity Ad Customized

Who didn’t love “spot the differences” pictures as a kid?

A friend of mine recently bought a Pontiac Bonneville SSE and one of the line-drawings in the manual left us guessing which car it actually depicted. It definitely wasn’t a Bonneville, that’s for sure. But, as always, our collective car brains eventually figured out what it was: an A-body Chevrolet Celebrity. While searching our brains google I found this old ad for the aforementioned vehicle and send it to my friends. We had a good laugh, mostly because of the mentioning of advanced technology. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway… being the photoshop artist I am, there was no way I could leave the picture alone. Keeping with my motto that every vehicle has at least some sort of potential to look less boring I went to work. Ten minutes later it was finished: lowered, wheels enlarged and changed from convex to concave surface, sideskirts modified and a front airdam added. Looks less forgetable now, doesn’t it?

Time and again it is basically just a matter of subtle changes like lowering the car and adding a nice(er) set of wheels to make it look better…

Maserati Shamal Stance|Works

Found this picture of a nice Maserati Shamal today and decided to have some fun and create a quick photoshop chop, Stance|Works style. Not much done here: lowered, USDM sidemarkers, tinted window frame and the same front lip and concave multi-piece OEM+ wheels I used on the Maserati Biturbo Spyder. Like it or not – it does put a smile on my face. ๐Ÿ™‚

Edit: somebody asked me how the front of this Maserati Shamal would look like. Turns out to be a rather mean and evil looking Maserati Shamal.

Maserati Biturbo Spyder

Looking at it from far away or just seeing a tiny little preview picture many people might think “BMW E30” initially. Though very similar in overall size, shape and packaging – this is neither designed nor made in Bavaria, but on the other side of the Alps where the weather usually is a lot nicer during winter. For the first time ever I applied my photoshop skills to a Maserati. Why? Because it looks like a cross-country 4WD edition with the original ride height which messes up the proportions of the car entirely. Check out the original picture here. So what has been done to achieve this look? Not much, actually – keeping to my design ethos of keeping it realistic so it could be done with a real car and possibly even get TรœV-approval in Germany. Substantial lowering (possibly air-ride?), re-shaped front and rear bumpers to match the lines of the original sideskirt, USDM sidemarkers, black stripes to break up the area between the wheel arches. I also converted the original wheels into more concave multi-piece items.

Now – who spotted the chopped windshield frame / A-pillars? ๐Ÿ˜‰
