The Muschallaro: Part Challenger, Part Camaro, Part Mustang

|
A talented modeler named Robert D. came up with the wacky idea of creating a scale-model that combines elements from the latest editions of Detroit's pony cars: the body of a Chevy Camaro, the front end of a Dodge Challenger and the rear-end of the Ford Mustang. And this here is the result.

"I like the main body of the Camaro better than the Challenger. I like the Challenger front end better than the Camaro. Once the idea was in my head to add Mustang to the equation, it all came together, because I found out pretty quickly that the three could combine into one," Robert stated in a forum for model cars.

We don't have to tell those of that you have ever attempted to make a custom model that it's easier said than done. Nevertheless, after four painstaking months of work, Robert pulled it off.

And even if you disagree with the aesthetics or the parts of the three muscle cars that were chosen for the model, you can't but admire the result from a technical point of view.

Now, any ideas what the tri-pony car should be named?

At first sight of the name "Muschallaro" I thought "Oh god...what kind of idiotic piece of road-going garbage can be this and how idiotic would the redneck that created be?" but I absolutely regret it.

It looks strange, but interesting and very muscle-y. Just great, but you can't explain why. It's a wacky idea mixing 3 american antagonist pony cars but this guy managed to do it, with great results and effort. Massive congratulations.

Robert has essentially created a muscle car for the next Grand Theft Auto series.

"Robert has essentially created a muscle car for the next Grand Theft Auto series."

That's basically what I thought when I saw it. Although whenever I play GTA, the all the cars remind me of Chinese copies of actual cars.

I would Have one with out a doubt... i have always thought these 3 cars were lacking something... but its totaly gone... To put it simply it would be the perfect muscle car as long as it had the HEMI... Very well done Robert

I'm Bob Downie, the builder. A friend suggested "Menaj" for the name...but I call it "Flashback". It was a fun model to build, that's for sure! Thanks for the comments.

Those are some serious modelling skills!
And the final result came out great, indeed, It would look fantastic on 1:1 scale. Anyone?
Congratulations Robert

Hey Detroit, do you have any job openings for this man?

Is it me, or did the Camaro's roof appear to get chopped? I mean it is a model, but the roof looks lower for some reason.

After trying some weird names, i've selected "Camustenger".

Looks great. Robert, you wouldn't happen to want to make one in 1:18 scale that I could add to my model car collection, would you?

Sorry to say: it looks positively inane!

I love the car!! The name "Muschallaro" sound Italian. But it would be a full blooded American Muscle Car as long as it had a "Hemi" engine!
