The Plymouth Fury from Stephen King's "Christine" and the Ford Falcon Interceptor from the "Mad Max" film are some of the most iconic movie cars ever created. Well, it turns out that mixing them together can result in a wild, drag- and off-road-ready, blown muscle car. One that's likely possessed.
The rendering you're looking at was put together by Abimelec Design and it's essentially the shell of a 1958 Plymouth Fury with the underpinnings for Mad Max's 1973 Ford Falcon police interceptor. There's a supercharged V8 engine, a big gasoline tank in the trunk, and fat tires for desert running. There's also some barbed wire, side-exiting exhaust pipes, and a forward slant for a bit of drama.

The Plymouth Fury body showcases a well-made digital patina, with scratches, sun-burnt paint, and a repainted front clip. Oh, and did you notice the front grille that features barbed wire instead of horizontal slats? I guess that's one way to eliminate competition in the race for hard-to-find gasoline. It's also a cool way to celebrate Halloween, especially considering Christine's evil nature.

Published in 1983, Stephen King's horror novel "Christine" revolves around a possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury that can repair itself after it commits several murders by slamming into cars and people. The car is actually an early sub-series of the Plymouth Belvedere, as the Fury did not become a stand-alone model until 1959.

The rendering is also a tribute to the "Pursuit Special" vehicle that Mad Max drives throughout much of the iconic franchise. The car is based on the Australian-built, 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT and features a long list of upgrades performed specifically for the movie. The list includes flared fenders, a nose cone, eight exhaust pipes, and a Weiand 6-71 supercharger.

So how do you feel about this rendering? Is it a good hybrid between the two movie cars? Should it get a special series of the "Alien vs. Predator" variety? Let me know in the comments section below.
