My name is Steven Fowler, and Paul recently invited me to start posting some of my automotive Photoshops on this site. I’m currently a college student studying animation (no, not like Pixar, more like Looney Tunes. Yes, my career choice is as obsolete as my taste in cars), and I am crazy about classic cars. I’ve been obsessed with hardtops since I first learned about them about seven years ago (It’s not that I was oblivious to them, just that I was born over a decade after the last ones disappeared from showrooms), and one of the things I like to do in my spare time is edit pictures of cars to turn them into hardtops, convertibles, station wagons, and other unique creations. This is the first post in a series of “What If?” articles, which should offer a glimpse into a parallel universe where things didn’t happen quite the same way they did here. I have quite a few ideas already lined up for future posts, but if anyone has any ideas they’d like to see, mention them in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.
Today’s feature: What if the hardtop wasn’t axed when the Chevrolet Caprice was downsized for 1977?
What If? bonus: What if the Caprice Classic Coupe wasn’t discontinued?
