    Atend the Roof a little further back to the trunk add another inch onto the top
    and make the roof a removable hard top like the Allante and maybe you have something
    but if not
    then it needs to go for shark bate

    If you want some high sided, slit window coupe there are plenty to chose from in the marketplace, either new or used. Why wreck a perfectly good Eldorado?

    The entire purpose of a top chop is to enhance the looks of the vehicle. Some of the best top chops are so subtle that it is hard to tell if it has been done. Something like what has been shown is crazy, and probably not even doable as the car has curved side glass, which can't be cut. The Eldo has nice proportions in my opinion, just leave it alone.

    that picture is...not good. Since we're talking "what ifs", I think it would have been awesome if GM would have made the Eldorado as a true pillarless hardtop. Probably wouldnt have done much for the rigidity of the body though.
