Unofficial muscle car concepts

Unofficial muscle car concepts

A few decades ago designers used pencils to create their legendary muscle car designs. Many of them have historic value among muscle car enthusiasts. Sadly, some of the car makes, like Pontiac, will probably never be manufactured again, but at least young designers, equipped  with modern design technologies and tools may suggest their ideas for the public which, I dare to say, are sometimes a few times better than the ones coming from the manufacturers’ studios.
Most of these concepts are not complete just because they design only the front or rear ends and even use “donor car” photos for their base. Would You believe that Barracuda is based on Infinity, or that the front view of Oldsmobile Toronado picture used to be a 2008 Ford rear view photo? Anyway, these concepts are inspired by the real muscle cars and represent the idea of what they could be today.
