I think this one works! It looks much better than I could have imagined and the top and body proportions seem reasonably good.

It looks good but I tend to agree with Frank.

As a 2 door wagon, without the vista roof.....that might be a better fit

Beautifully done, and as a stand-alone design in its own right it is a handsome beast. Unfortunately I have to agree with the general feeling that the overall shape of the Riviera is so "sacrosanct" that a Vista Cruiser version would be a non-starter.

If there were to be a wagon, I would want it to preserve more of the original look, including the broad B pillars.

Apologies for posting my own infantile attempt at graphics alongside the work of art shown above, but I was thinking of something like this . . .

Riviera side 2 EDIT

OK, you can laugh and roll your eyes, but you get the general idea.

It looks quite nice and in proportion but I just can't support changing the beautiful Riviera luxury/sport icon to that degree.
