    Modern Brazilian Opala

    This one is not from me. I saw on Deviantart, one fan who imagined a modern Brazilian Chevrolet Opala. https://www.deviantart.com/marinange...pala-673015878

    Nice!
    Pony Car: an affordable, compact, highly styled car with a sporty or performance-oriented image and an available V8.

    Re: Modern Brazilian Opala

    interesting, I don't know the history on such a vehicle, but I'm getting a little too much 1st gen mustang from it to be a chevy and it makes me recoil a bit



    EDIT: South American "Chevy Nova" utilizing Opel body as a starting point, changed the styling a bit, and then used US drivetrains. I hate it much less seeing the original.

    What you get if you mate an Opel Commodore and a Ford Mustang. Very nice offspring!

    Very well done, the person who made it is very talented! With that said, I agree with the above that I'm getting a Mustang vibe that a GM product (real or imagined) should not have.

    A lot of the Brazilian "AMERICAN BRAND" cars have brand "identity" issues with a LOT of ford/CHEVY design cues being used on the "wrong" brand
