I think those Chevies only need a little paint around the windows.
Without the black rubber moldings or some chrome trim they may look smaller than normal. And the windshields need more to thicken them up. To my eye, the biggest flaw is the side molding chrome which has either no breaks for the door lines or is overlapping backwards. It is interesting what features draws each ones eyes. Cars as common everyday fixture as a Chevy should be a piece of cake. But consider where these craftsmen are they living, they may never have walked up to the real thing.
