    OH YEAH! That works. Little brother to the SSR. If the non car guy suit/beancounters stay out of the way this could be one of GM's historic platforms.

    I never understood the appeal of the original El Camino, but this thing here is completely out of control!!! I like it more than the original Nomad concept, and I see it as a real Scion competitor with lots of customization appeal. A removable roof panel and rear-window, and possibly some installable BRAT-seats (e.g. a bed track for modular components sensu the Titan), would make this thing seriously Uber-Swank, and even more appealing to me than the Solstice, as I'd actually be able to use it as a daily driver.

    I dont know about you, but I dont think there is a need for a 3ft bed.... Good chop, but deffinatly not something to go into production. I dont see a major need. Out of all the nomad chops you did, did you ever make a Nomad vert? I think that would be way more desirable then that IMO.
