Hey guys,
Younglion, thanks again for the link. I gave it a shot. Somehow it doesn't look right. Do you guys bevel the edges on your tire tread? Would that be too much? Here's my first shot at the tire. I'm probably going to redo it again.

not bad but normally for tire treads i use a lot of polygons cause i dont smooth it (i dont think my pc could handle that much polys esp if all four tires are smooth). also that sidewall is a bit too thin

Hey guys,
Thanks again for the info. I did the tire again with bevels and made it a little thicker. Here's how it turned out. Hopefully I should be done modeling the car within the next two days.

Here are some test renders. Please let me know what you think. Any tips on lighting would be sweet.

nice work soup, but a few things
1. the paint is too reflective
2. the reflections on the body is a bit weird and confusing and doesnt do justice to the modeling
take a look at this photo the reflections are not all over the place.

i dont get it! how the hell do you do that!? im modelling a keyboard at the moment, just basic polygons sort of bevelled and stretched a bit and stuck on top of/next to each other. i know im an amateur compared to most people on this site, so my critical skills are not really valid, but i would love to be able to model something as good as this. i really dont get it though, i wouldnt even know how to go about making even just the bonnet of that model. fingers crossed, someday soon...

Thanks again for the input. My rendering and lighting still needs a lot of work. To get highlights like in the photos, would it just be a dome with a ramp on it? or would there be anything else in the scene? Also I don't have any lights. I just used a black image with random white spots on it. lol. I think I might model a very simple showroom type environment for this project in the next few days once I get homework out of the way.

ben,
It just takes a lot of practice and patience. This is actually the 4th car I have modeled. The first two were terrible. (skyline r32, and dodge challenger) The third wasn't great. (audi r8 with jets) This car still has a few mistakes. I put a black blinn on everything after I was done modeling and I noticed that I had some uneven highlights and pinching in certain places. I started with one polygon plane, and just started extruding edges, and blocking in the geo.
