The Challarostang - Click above for high-res image gallery

Having trouble deciding which of America's three latest muscle cars is right for you? Well, at least you're not alone. We ourselves at the Autoblog HQ have had lengthy debates on the merits and drawbacks of each model, and the expected ongoing series of improvements to the Camaro, Challenger and Mustang are sure to drive a wedge between GM Gearheads, Ford Fanatics and Mopar Maniacs until the end of time.

Or, as seen above, you could go a slightly different route and combine all three ponies into one model, which we've taken the liberty of christening has been christened (Whoops! We're apparently not as clever as we thought, someone beat us to the name.) the Challarostang. A Vulcan Mind Meld between the front fascia and hood of a Challenger, the bodysides of a Camaro and the hind end of a Mustang, it actually doesn't look nearly as crazy as you might imagine. In fact, we kinda dig it.

According to Robert D, the Challarostang's modeler, the automotive ménage à trois seen here took four months to complete. Next question, which drivetrain do you choose? Click here for a description of the build process from the modeler himself.

      If I squint and look at that thing it screams "customized vintage Mopar". Interesting

      Hey cool! That's my model, I finished it in early November. I'm Bob Downie (the Robert D. mentioned in the writeup). It was a fun "what if" project to combine all three models.

      Almost named it "Menaj"...but "Flashback" happened & it sounded a bit less lurid LOL.

      I'm loving all the comments. I built it purely for fun, though I'd really love to drive it. Would they let a 1:1 of it in the door at SEMA?

      Should have used an original color scheme. It looks to much like a Challenger.

      The perfect generic pony car for some auto insurance commercial.

      Meh! Just a model kit. Nissan 240SX has been meshed with Mustang
      front, Skyline GT-R body, G35, 300ZX, 350Z or just about anything you
      can imagine and on real car bodies with so many different engines
      including midship. This is like child's play. XD

        I suppose you could do better?

        Nope, not likely.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Could have gone without the Mustang Back-End...

      Heh, heh, heh. Just to make things even weirder, it should have the 4.2L V8 from the Audi R8.

      This is officially the slowest automotive news day I've watched unfold on Autoblog yet.

        So get out of your beanbag chair, throw on a pair of semi-clean Zubaz pants & your favorite Kiss T-shirt, come out of your Mom's basement, and enjoy some holiday cheer!

      I hate stubby cars. The long Challenger hood combined with the Camaro's gunslit greenhouse gives great proportions. It's so long and wide you could fool yourself that it's a low car.

      6.1L hemi do want!
