New "Hot Rod" Truck

General Motors Corp. was to unveil today its plans for a revival of the Chevy El Camino car-truck as a 2010 model Pontiac hot rod. The "sport truck" doesn't have a name yet; GM will run a contest over the next month asking for submissions at a Pontiac Web site www.pontiac.com/namethiscar, and announce the winner April 15.

It will haul more than 1,000 pounds and tow 3,500 pounds -- as much as some small pickups.

I lived through the real 70s.

I think some things are better left buried

I believe this is the "UTE" made in Australia by the Holden division of GM. These small pickups are hugely popular in Australia. They range from economical ones with smaller engines to the 6 litre, which I gather is what Pontiac intends to market. I find them good looking and should sell well if they price them right. Ford Australia also markets UTEs.

Yup I hear ya but I think this one is cute (especially with a Fiberglass "attachment" )

And El Caminos were quite popular
If priced right, this little truck could be as popular

Would that make a decent tow for a Scamp 5er?

I think the Holden Ute or Pontiac Sport Truck or El Camino or whatever they end up calling it looks great - I just wish they would stop putting in huge 6.0 litre V8's in these type of vehicles. I look forward to a car-based pickkup being available with a smaller, more economical engine, preferably a small diesel.
