The 1968 Pontiac GTO is a legendary vehicle from the muscle car era. What happens when you take the legendary muscle car, add a raised suspension and give it the Mad Max treatment?
Fortunately, digital master Remy Trappier has provided us with an answer to that question. Remy starts with a 1968 Pontiac GTO then adds a raised suspension with aggressive off-road tires and wheels, a bulbar with integrated lights and tops it all off with a ‘Mad Max’ paint job and body affects. The end result is overall, quite impressive.
The digital renderings of this vehicle remind me of a car that actually did exist. In the 1960s and 70s when muscle cars were all the rage and off-road racing was just gaining traction, it was not uncommon to see Rancheros, Mavericks, Dusters, a GTO, some older Mopars and even some Chevelles entered into the passenger sedan classes of races throughout the Western United States and Mexico. One of the more successful and iconic competitors were Oldsmobile 442s.
