    I would divest 25% of my shares in GM (argargarg) if they came out with these cars.

    Second one is pretty cool.

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. This was a photoshop exercise, not a recommendation to GM. I'm an old fart, and I miss the El Camino brand, but I also understand that it probably never made a dime for GM. Having many variants on many body styles like they did back in the 60's wasn't cost efficient.

    As to the Cabover, I think the concept (in general) may have some merit, although my execution may not be the best. Trucks are getting very big, and shortening the wheelbase while not loosing payload capacity or cab space could be beneficial in many situations. Not to mention that it could be designed in such a way to give it a "tough attitude." There would certainly be drawbacks, too, though.

    That one off of the Malibu seems interesting enough, but like you say it would never be done. I also miss the El Camino and would grab a modern take on it in a heartbeat.

    GM already has the capability of an El Camino with little if any expenditure required so i doubt they would entertain building one from scratch. The Silverado reminds me of the old Kombi pick up.

    If they built the Cab Over Silverado they might be able to sell a few in the UK and EU

    They wouldn't be much bigger than a Transit when all is said and done

    I like this. Gives it a 50's Chevy hotwheels truck type of look.

    the COE Silvie looks to me to be a "utility body van" and would make an AWESOME replacement for the GMT full size vans EX if offered in various roof heights and the colorado 2.8L Duramax and the ECOTECH3 family
