Holden Special Vehicles makes this awesome car. HSV Maloo, 425 hp LS3, only sold in Australia. Why the hell didn't they sell this in the U.S. as the El Camino SS??? It's basically a Pontiac G8 with a truck bed. Whoever made the decision to NOT sell this in the U.S. should be fired. Also, the person responsible for killing Pontiac... :dunno:

Yeah, the El Camino needs to be brought back to life. Maybe with the launch of the new SS this week, they will offer an El Camino. I would totally buy one in a few years.

I saw that thing on top gear a couple years ago, handles like a car, but the bed is still useable. Perfect for the US market, but GM is run by idiots.

I was reading about the upcoming Chevy SS debut, basically the Holden Commodore with Chevy badging, RWD... and I'm assuming an LS3 as an option?!?!?!? Anyways, they also mentioned that a wagon and the "ute" version (which is the Maloo) would be coming later in the year.

That car would do GM alot of good. Now, if they would offer it as a wagon, with a rear seat, keep the 2dr and bring the Nomad name plate back they would have another seller...IMHO. GM needs to come out with a slam dunk 'different' car. Ford & Dodge really have done a good job doing the 'little bit of old with alot of new' design's.

^^^ Totally agree.

They also have the Chevy caprices here too aka a 6.0l v8 rwd impala.

Everyone talks and says they would buy it but when it comes time we will see who is dropping 40k on a brand new car. I'll bet 99% of this forum won't be buying a Chevy ss, elcamino,or wagon.

I'm sure there's people here that have no problem spending 40k on a brand new car just not on a brand new "GM" car. What we wish GM would build and sell is miles away from what they will actually produce.
