    El Camino entry #2

    Holden Ute Based again, it seems very appropriate, with a mix of the SSR front.

    Enjoy,
    Joe

    Not bad, the front needs a fix.

    wow, i think with the front if the headlights were surrounded with the purple like the rest of the car rather then the black, it would look better

    i dont think the holden ute will make a good basis for any winners. it just looks too old to begin with.

    I don't see how it looks like a 90's car, I think it looks like a current car.

    do you think the gto looks entirely current? because the door panels, greenhouse hood and grille (without the chop) are essentially the same

    I know that they share a lot in common, but I certainly don't think the GTO or the UTE look from the 90's.

    i just think the ute needs more shape. the beltline is way low, the body panels have no character.
