    1. @Paul Joosten well he said this is just how he would do it, and to not change the original. I bet Foose had this idea for years, probably back when his father worked on similar cars.

  1. Could you please draw how you would design the next generation BMW 7 Series and use the 750iL E38 as the only inspiration. I’m so afraid BMW will mess it up after they ruined the recent facelift 7 Series grille and just released the horrific 4 Series.

    1. That’s actually a great idea. A modern BMW(any series) that actually follows the 90s and early 2000s Bimmers, when they looked so awesomely good!

  2. Would like to see what Chip could do with a H2 Hummer. There are still quite a few these out there, so there may be a niche to restylize them.

  3. Hate to say this….but messing with front wheel arches, would make turning front wheel ‘lock to lock’ nigh on impossible…..😳

  4. Very difficult task. I would love to say this is a subtle twist on an iconic shape but it doesn’t work for me ! Sorry Chip ! I absolutely adore your skills .

  5. To this day, Marcelo Gandini’s design still looks best to this day. With all due respect, softening the lines it became a corvette xp895.

    1. Foose does not deserve any “due respect” ! Messing with with an icon designer car is stupid and cheap.

    2. @Marc René Yvon well he certainly deserves respect for what he knows and is able to do. this is his take on it. tbh i don’t like it that much either, cuz i believe hard, crazy edges is what lambo stands for, but it was worth the while. no need for bashing it.

  6. Do you take requests
    I’ve got a 1947 dodge 2 door business coupe and I’d love to see what you would do with it.

  7. I didn’t even know Chip Foose did art videos! This is awesome! I would love to see an art class done by him, I would watch it in a heartbeat
