Why did the camaro, charger, and mustang look similar then and now?

back in the 60's and 70s the camaro the charger and the mustang all looked similar, not exact but in my opinion they looked similar. then the charger quit being made, the mustang did its own thing and so did camaro. by the 80s and 90s they were totaly different. and eventually camaro quit being made. but then ford totally redesigned the mustang in 2005. also i believe it was also 2005 when dodge came out with the charger. it didnt look real similar to the mustang but over the years they started to look similar. now chevy has brought back camaro which looks just like the others. and also now dodge has brought back the chalenger which looks exactly like the camaro IMO. could someone tell me why they looked similar in the older days, now they have been totally redesigned yet still look similar. i would think one of them would come up with something differnt

Because they all looked similar back then and all three manufacturers are going for nostalgia to sell these totally re-designed new "muscle cars".

In the '60's and '70's, the Camaro and Mustang were "poor man's Corvettes", and in direct competition with each other. The Charger never looked like either of the others; it was larger, heavier, and more powerful. Chrysler came out with the Challenger in the '70's to compete with the Camaro and Mustang, and has done so again. Today's Charger is a family sedan.

Incidentally, I had a '67 Mustang coupe and traded it for a '70 Charger. Talk about a high-speed boat! The speedo had a 270-degree sweep, 0-160 mph speedo, and I had it all the way around to 0 many a time.

Yes the three look alike; however, have you noticed the European cars? They all look alike, too.
