    Wow! That is a neat idea, I would have never thought about using the Nomad concept vehicle! any changes to the front? also, Might I suggest that the bed be elongated a bit?

    Love it, both. If it wasn't ElCamino, I would definatley vote for the first one. I just like the more compact style. But It is still freakin sweet. Good work

    Re: Rex's Kappa Camino

    At first I scoffed....

    But this is really interesting. Very attractive. Not really possible in the Kappa architecture, but still very interesting. (the box is EXACTLY where the gas tank is, and the floor is below where the differential is).

    BUT, I could easily see how it might be executed off a FWD platform...

    Looks good, I actually think I like the first one more, it's not as usable, but I think it looks cool.

    BLEEEP you! You posted yours before I could post mine!

    I did change the bed treatment slightly - but overall, I like yours.

    Re: Rex's Kappa Camino

    I like the bed length of the longer one, but I think it would look better if it was accomplished with more overhang instead of more wheelbase. By that I mean, the increased overall length should be a combo of more wheelbase AND more overhang, not just wheelbase.
