Return of the EL CAMINO! (sort of)

The Pontiac G8 ST (Sport Truck)

I read about it in the latest Motor Trend. We were also supposed to get a wagon version of the G8, but it looks like that won't happen.

(A Photoshop someone did of what the actual El Camino may look like)



EDIT:
I noticed alot of people saying that want one, but I'm not sure which one they're talking about. Poll added.

It's weird, it's not "that's pretty good, for a pontiac/chevy" anymore, it just "that's a sweet car."

The best thing about the old El-Caminos was the massive storage space in the space behind the seat- under the bed. It was a great place for huge subs- or stashing tools from prying eyes.

I'd still rather have a turbo wagon or mini-van, but I'm a freak.
