Cars are a popular choice. Not sure why, though - I assume they're very good practice for CG modeling. Anyway, interesting choice of car, most people tend to jump into doing supercars are something "cool", any particularly reason for going for the Fiat 500?

the seam is way to noticable
looking forward to seeing how this progresses
yes its good practice cuz there are so many angles to work from and model good for practacing textures as well
More work done on the car. Right now it looks more like a toy but the actual car looks like a toy also.
Wireframes. Unsmoothed and…
Did you neglect to merge the points in the middle (assuming you're doing one side and mirroring it) or is the ridge intentional? I know the front of the 500 has a slight ridge, but the model looks a little too sharp.
Ok. Got a bit more done. Made the hood, door and side window. Rendered in Mental Ray and my first attempt at useing HDRI.
More stuff done in the front. I also changed the color to this nice orange. The part that shoulds be round aren’t really turning out all that round but might be close enough for now. And ignore the strange blue glowy windows.
Well I got the trunk and back window done. Still need to do the windshield. I’m getting some distortion from the windows still haven’t figured that out yet. So far I’m really happy with how this is turning out.
Changed the color again. It should be a seafoam green but it’s coming out more whiteish-gray. Still I like it. Found out that the headlights are mostly useless since they face up and out to the side. Oh well I can live with it for now.
I noticed a new problem with this tutorial is the hatch back. He did it one way and went back and fixed it later without saying anything. So I will need to go back and fix that. The red texture on the lights is just temp for now.
Added a door handle and all the window trim.
I fixed the problem I had with the back door and added a few new bits. I also noticed that the bulge in the back is a bit bigger than it should be.
Well I finished off the back and it has a few problems but I think it looks ok for now. I The thought the vents would have been harder to do and taken longer but they were not. I think I’m done with the car for now I was hoping to get a little more done before the end of the month but a migraine has put an end to that idea. Plus I’m in the mood to get back to my Star Trek: Civil War ships.
Decided to make a few changes. First was to the lighting. I think it shows the flaws in the mesh more but I think it makes the care look better. I added license plates and windsheild wipers. I’ll probably need to redo them because right now they don’t even tough the glass, I had a hell of a time getting them in place. I’ve stated on therims and will be doing the tires soon. they will probably be the hardest part for me. One of my refeence pictures showed a car with the bars on the front and back fenders so I thought I might add them to see how they might look.
The tires are mostly done I just need to fix a thing or two but I am very happy with the result.
For some reason I got banneed over at Scratch Made Cars after my last post so I won’t be around there anymore. Too bad.
I made more adjustments to the lights and fixed some pinching I saw near the door.
Something went a little goofy here for some reason. Not sure why. Anyway I started to build the inside of the door, unfortunatly I loss the work I did and have to do it again. It should be easy to do.
I think he's probably using a symmetry modifier while it's under construction, seam will probably go away when it's finalized... Cool model though!
I’ve been busy playing Madden 13 so not getting alot of work done. But I’ve managed to get some of the inside of the car done including the front seats.
