Fix the Pontiac Aztek? | Chip Foose Draws a Car - Ep. 11

The original concept car from 1999 certainly had merit, but all the intended energy and presence went down the drain when the concept met the "hard points" of GM's U-body minivan platform.  A cool Pontiac SUV based on a Pontiac Montana?  Good luck with that: The end result was offensive to most eyes, ill-proportioned, and its plastic clad body was so ungainly that a mid-cycle exterior refresh happened in the second year of production ... nearly unheard of in the car design business.
