I found this concept shot by doing a quick Google search....

http://www.fantasycars.com/derek/car...ndprixg8_1.jpg

Looks like a GTP with hood scoops...... not bad.... but I don't see ANY Bonneville in it.... just GP.
Not a bad looking car though.... and notice what might be a "hood tach"? Very cool.
I really dig the rims too..... if that was RWD.... I'd hit it.

I thought it looked too much like the GP..... looks better then the GP actually.... those hood scoops were very aggressive... and that hood tach is very cool.
