  The extreme lowering makes the wheel openings look awkward to me; maybe close them a bit at the bottom to give vertical lower sides?  This should also add to the visual length, accenting the lowering.

 

I agree completely, especially in profile. Part of the problem comes from the incorrect wheel-openings on the old Testors 930 shell this model is based on, and it's one reason I decided to hack this one up rather than build a nice stockish 930.

 

This side-shot of a real 930 shows the difference in angles of the rear of the front wheel-opening, and the front of the rear wheel-opening, as compared to the model. The wheel-openings are more symmetrical in general shape than what is presented by the Testors model, and after I get the shapes pf the front and rear fascias to my liking, I'll address the wheel wells.
