Holden invented the ute. If anything the el camino is a copy of the classic Aussie ute.

Yes Pontiac ordered 10,000 utes from Holden to be the El Camino but then the GFC of 2008 wipe that off the board such a shame.

I'm so disgusted in GM didn't give you guys the opportunity to enjoy these cars instead they killed off holden because they didn't want to compete with the pickup. They never understood they're two different beasts.

I've always thought that those would make the perfect modern day El Camino. It's unfortunate that the they may not be at a high demand. There are motr SUV's and crossovers that sell in America. Even though the pickup is also at a pretty high demand, I'm not sure there would be a demand for car based trucks.

We didn’t kill Pontiac G.M. Did that all their own while taking our tax dollars to build manufacturing plants in CANADA! G.M. Has put out nothing but junkers since the late 90’s but for some reason morons keep buying their over priced foreign made crap. They’re going to ask for another bail out soon.

So...essentially they cut the firewall out of the G8 (which contains the VIN) and welded it into the UTE and swapped the dash and any LHD components into it.

one of the most stolen cars/utes next to the falcons in OZ so many of them even the Police still use them! Stupid how you're not allowed them in the states! We no longer make Commonwhores (Commodores or Falcons in OZ). Biggest mistake the car industry from Detroit has ever made.

Why would you register a vehicle or sell it to the state at cost for you? I did it before i learned the law. I will no longer register my vehicles. Legal definition of driving is making money WHILE using the roadways. No constitutionally valid law mandates anyone to register their personal vehicles. Also, since most would not be driving (legally speaking), most dont need a license. Yes, i know the constitutionally valid law that would prohibit leos from impounding your car or ticketing or arresting you for standing up for those rights, they wont stop them from doing those things anyway. Because most including the vast majority of leos if not all leos actually believe the lies of registration, license and that they have this "authority" to enforce these lies by any means they feel necessary. So, basically look it up for yourself amd stand up at your own risk. Some even sue for these violations and get big paydays. But that will never come out of the violators pocket. If cops do that, then the state pays.....but the state has no money slexcept by the tax payers. So your neighbors and fellow man pay your lawsuit if you win. NO ACCOUNTABILITY.
